Im in the market for a first time Mtn bike i am looking to shed some of the wieght i have recently gained.
Currently i am 6'3 330lbs. My budget is $700 and am looking for something that will hold up to local off road trails. small jumps, hills, roots and such.
Any help would be appricated. I am heading to 2 local shops next week. REI and BGI Indy as i am located in indianapolis.
Just loooking for info and brands to avoid brands to look at. Number of spokes for a strong wheel. Strong crank to hold my weight etc........
I am mechanically inclined have worked on cars since i was 14 now am 24. But looking for something that i can ride first and upgrade if need be.
Thanks for any help
