Hey to all the fellow heavyweights. I have been riding forever but have taken a few years off due to life. Well, life is catching up to me and the weight isn't falling off like I had hoped. I am going to get back into some trail riding and some single track stuff locally. I have my eye on a Diamondback Response XE. I have read some good things about the bike, but I am not certain that the reviews were by riders of my size. I don't want to invest a lot of money into this as I won't realistically get to ride like I want to. I don't mind upgrading parts as they break, I am just looking for a good starting point. So my question is: What are all the other heavyweight part time riders riding?
