My friend Hoss Carthwright weighs 450lbs...(15 posts)

My friend Hoss Carthwright weighs 450lbs...t-moore

I am letting him ride my XL 23in Raleigh C 40 hybrid. The bike has a pair of Avenir 700x28 kevlar tires.

Would he be better off with the stock 700x35 Kenda tires
that came stock with the bike.

By the way, he is 6'6" and 450lbs. He is comfortable on the bike, but does he weigh too much???

Come on now, Hoss is just a take off on Bonanza and the Cartwrigth family. That is not my buddy's real name.

The ques is? Does my friend weight too much for the bike.
He takes it on short rides with no problems...

ps. am I dating myself, do any of readers remember the Cartwrights..

If I remember correctly, Adam, Joe, and Hoss were all born of different mothers. Two of the boys (Little Joe and Hoss?) lost wives on the show. Don't marry a guy named Cartwright.

Are you kidding? They STILL show Bonanza reruns on Norwegian TV (I think on NRK) every Saturday AM.
LOL - I'm such a dorkKristin

I thought it was a funny name and then figured y'all are from Tejass. I'm too young for Bonanza. I'm glad your bountiful friend is enjoying bikes.
the Cartrights lived at Tahoe - nice ranch (nm)laffeaux

There was a fire in the barn, then Ma died. The boys then sold the Barkley Ranch to housing developers, and put their millions into 24-hour fitness centers. Maybe there's one near you.
I appreciate the chatter...t-moore

I guess it all means that he will be okay on the bike...
Put on the biggest tires...MrDan

on a seriuos note, I have no idea what the bike moel is, but if it's a hybrid it's probably fine... I wouldn't put him on a stupid light bike though, that is unless you really wwant to HAVE to buy a new bike!

Help your big friend out... get him hooked on riding!
Yes, he does!!Alexx
