Heavy Rider Needs Advice

Hi all,

TLDR: Will the Mongoose Envoy support 400 pounds?

First time poster.

I'm hoping that you'll be able to help me. I'm between 375 and 400 pounds, depending on if I just ate at Golden Corral or not. Hahaha. Here's a tip when you go to Golden Corral skip the plates go for one of those big trays they hold four times more food. All right enough nonsense.

When I look around on the Internet and search articles like these: best bikes for 400 pound people. Mongoose bicycles always come up in the list, the fat tire ones. I contacted Mongoose and they said that they test their bicycles with 250 lb. In accordance with this website www.cpsc.gov. So, is Mongoose a good bike for heavy people? I'm looking at this particular bicycle the Mongoose envoy.
I'm also looking at this bike, the Yuba Kombi. The problem is this bike is a little more than I wanted to spend. But is rated at 440 pounds

I do realize that safety comes first. I don't want a bicycle where the wheel is gonna fold over on me when I hit a bump or something. So, if I have to spend that extra money I guess I will.

Thank you all.

Ever think about a Worksman bike? Their industrial models are designed to stand up to some real abuse.

I've ridden a few of their bikes and they're bombproof!
