question on a Response comp model

636 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  daveydoo17
Looking for a new bike and one of the two models I like is the Response Comp. It looks very stiff and could handle my size. 6' and 346lbs, down from 398 from last summer. I would do some trail riding, more like 60/40 street/trail. I have no plans on jumping or extreme riding. I know I need to drop another 100 pounds before I am ready. Is the frame able to withstand my twisting from my weight? Thanks for you imput on this model.

At your size it should be good, Will need a stiffer spring in the Tora/ about $30 bucks,

At your weight you could break wheels and cranks, but the frame is stout. Good luck and keep us informed on your progress

The frame is by far the least of your worries. Like David said though, smaller components might happen to give out early. It's a pretty stout bike. I've thrown mine around a time or two and it's still got plenty more left in it.
Thanks for the replys and some upgrades tips, I will keep you posted on updates.
