I am new and have been looking at different bikes for about 6 months. I recently bought a Specialized Hotrock 19" mountain bike which when it was setup by my LBS does fit me at 6'1" but not sure I should rided it since I am sitting at 280 and when I looked at Specialized guide it shows the max weight at 220 as it really is a 24" bike and will probably have it set back up for my daughter or wife.
It was used (50 bucks) and the LBS was a Specialized dealer and they didn't mention anything about me being careful or it not working for me.
Anyone have any experience with this bike? It has 32 spoke aluminum wheels but I would rather go buy a new bike for me?
