Will a Kona Blast work for a 380 lb. rider

I've got a bike I'm trying to sell and a potential buyer wants to know if it will hold up to a 380 lb. rider?

He said it would be mostly on-rode riding. Bike is in great shape, never wrecked. Wheels are true.

I don't see why not.....

It's about equivalent to the Rockhopper or a Hardrock. I don't really see any issues.

Check out the Kona "Hoss Deluxe" I think it's made with the bigger rider in mind.
