I bought an x Caliber 29ers bike yesterday to use it for exercising and loosing weight based on the recommendation of the sales person at the shop. I am around 380 lb (172 KG) and would like to know if the bike can handle my weight?! I am mainly concerned about the wheels spokes to get damaged as another sales person from different shop has told me that all Terk bikes can not handle anything more than 264 lb (120 KG) where the spokes will defiantly get damaged.
Who is saying the correct statement?
I paid a lot for this bike and considered it as an investment to help me loose weight and be on shape and I don't want to loose this investment. I have seen people bigger than me using Terk bikes and they lost at least half of their weight with it and that what motivated me.
P.S. I am going to use on road only with care.
