    Not always true, I think it is wrong to generalize either way.
    Most of the time, the first piece that you're gonna destroy is the rear wheel.

    Bear,
    I see the Agio rated at 275#, where did you get the 350# from ?
    I am in a similar boat, my choices are the RANS Formula 26 HD or the Lightfoot traveler.

    Yes, this is the store. Very helpful, nevertheless, does not have any LWB in stock. That's why I have to drive to the bicycle man in Alfred, NY, 800 miles return.

    Oh well. I guess this SWB was not my size.
    Thanks for all the replies.
  13. Anyone 6'3 (190cm) or more ride a 'bent ?

    If yes, which model do you ride?
    I tried a SWB and was definitely for someone 5'8 max.
    TIA

    My expedition does not have any bar tape, but rather a thick rubber sleeve about 4 inches long that sits on the end of the handlebars.

    The "sprint braces" are the vertical rods going from the seat to the near end of the frame,right ?
    About the seat base, if I disintegrate it, I'm sure i could find a solution.

  20. RANS F5 Enduro strong enough for 375# ?

    My LBS has a F5 Enduro on sale, and I am tempted.
    If I rebuild the rear wheel, is the F5 a good choice for commuting 25-50 km a day (both ways) ?
    Or I am going to destroy it at 6'2 and 375# ?
