  • What bike (if any) for a 145kg man? Brother wants to implement a little extra mobility/variation/cardio into his strong man training
    Anything he can get QR wheel wise that'll support some very modest light trail/road rides - 10-15mile potters? If it makes a difference (the power he's putting through the pedals rather than just weight), he's a big powerful guy (amateur strongman) rather than a 14 stone guy 10st overweight.

    Tyres is also an issue as you can imagine.
    Shout if it's a case of basically once you hit 125kg+ cycling (esp off the shelf bikes/wheels) is pretty much out of bounds or if you have any ideas of pedal power for a man of such dimensions


  • A touring bike would probably be fine. Look up people build tandem wheel if you're really worried, but 36h should be fine (what we have on the front of our tandem).
