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).
Many thanks; will have a look and point him that way - much appreciated; cheers
