I have a Specialized Stumpjumper FSR 29'r Expert. I started riding it at/over 300lbs butt naked. Probably >310lbs loaded up. I was so heavy and out of shape that it was okay that I exceeded the weight limit. My LBS said it would be okay. I was only trail riding. No jumping or serious technical high impact crap. The only drawback was that I couldn't get the air pressure high enough to set the sag where it should be. Thus I was riding a little bit lower than the bike was designed for and had some pedal slap issues.

Now I'm down to <220lbs and it's perfect!
