My inseam is a 31" I'm trying to get into shape, so hopefully I won't weigh 235 lbs for much longer...

I'm looking for a hardtail with components and forks that can handle a big guy like me.

I want to do trailriding and long distance road rides too(but I don't want something like one of those roadbike/half mountain bikes)

Prefer a good disc brake setup, and I'm willing to spend up to 800-900 bucks.

Also open to lightly used bikes if anyone knows of a deal :)

Thanks for the help.

Thanks for the advice, I was hoping for a little bit of technical info about dimensions too :) That bike kinda reminds me of a beach cruiser...Not really feeling it.

Do you work for Ibex?

I'm thinking about the Raleigh Mojave 8.0 in a Large.

search MTBR classifieds, Pinkbike, craigslist and ebay for a used bike....that is the best bang for buck
