Carbon MTB and rider weight

Recommended Posts

Morning hubbers,


thinking about getting  a Epic Carbon comp.


Got a few questions for the experienced guys.


I tip the scales at about 95kgs. was 107 in december and am stil loosing.  Do you think I would be too big for a carban mtb frame?


Other option is to get the Marathon frame and build a bike up. 


I ride marathons and stage races when I can.


Is there anything I should keep in mind when purchasing a carbon bike?

You should have no problem with the bike.  I'm 193 and I weigh 90kgs+ and I have no problems with Specialized carbon

Check the new Merida 0.9, No rider weight limit and replacement including racing (check with local agent)


I am 1,93cm and 84kg at best - no problems with carbon frames (currently 2008 Merida)
