Bikes for REALLY BIG guys(4 posts)

Bikes for REALLY BIG guysdavee

Today I was telling a co-worker about my new bike. He asked for recommendations for a bicycle. At 6'6" and (probably)320#, he is certainly not a candidate for a super light racing bike. Are there any off the shelf hybrids or comfort bikes out there for a person this big? I know his interest level would not justify a custom frame.

Your suggestions would be welcome.

Anything, as long as it fits and has a good warranty

I would tell him to look at the Giant Cypress. It comes in a 23.5 inch frame and with the Zoom stem should allow him to bring the bars at or above the seat. He will probably have to swap out for a longer seat post though.
