Need Folder Bike for Heavy Male
I am new to this forum. I found you from a link of a fellow runner who goes by JVishey -I have not met him personally. But we belong to the same running club.
I'm shopping for a folder bike -it will be a surprise birthday gift for a heavy guy. He is about 6'3, 320lbs. I don't think he will do more than 20 Miles per week to start. I don't know anything about folders. I was going to get him a Trek or a used Cannondale because I know the frames are reliable. But, this guy is a trucker and he needs to be able to ride the bike 8 miles to his truck and then fold it...
I've heard that the Matrix is a good bike. What about the frame? Will it hold up to his weight? How much should I expect to pay? I am hoping to stay below 200.00.
Any advise I can get out there would help because right now I am clueless!
