I'm trying to find out what bike to get. I'm 6'1" and just got down to 330 after reaching a terrible 415. I'm looking to get a mtb that I could start and grow with. When I googled bikes for big guys, I kept coming across the kona hoss. Which is how i also found this forum. Unfortunately they no longer make them. I have looked at the kona web page, but being a beginner I really don't know if any of the bikes they have can support my size.
I would really like to stay with a kona bike if possible. Being from hawaii it would just be cool to have one. Lol!!! Could anyone give any insight to the bikes they do make and if any of them would support my size? What's the most important factor for big guys to consider as far as components on the bike? Obviously rims and tires. Is that all that should be beefed up?
If kona doesn't met the requirements can anyone point me to other options? I'm hopeing to stay around the $700 ballpark. Mahalo in advance for any info!!!
