Weight Limit for a Spark?

2383 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  magsdad
I am considering purchasing a Spark as I have heard good things about the way they ride and they fit how I ride. (I have also test ridden and preferred it to other makes) However, I am around 6'1" and right now 235 lbs.

Am I too big for this bike? I have read things about flex and frame cracking. Flex is one thing, as I have felt that on a number of bikes I have owned. The cracking seems limited to the rear triangle, which, from reports, have been updated.

I am looking for long term weight loss, so my lbs shouldn't be that number for too long. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

Get the bike. It will be fine for your weight.
110kg/243lbs incl. riding gear and load from their 2010 menu page 7.
Yes, Scott specify a weight limit of 110kgs. I'm 6'1" and ride a large which is fine although I do need to set the saddle as far back as it will go.
Thanks, all!

I didn't see it until now. Much appreciated!
