My current weight is 145 kg and I should be 135 kg before summer. I'm looking for an entry level bike for street riding to help me lose more wight. I've read a lot about heavy riders and the top suggestions are wide tires, 36 spokes and steel frame.
So far I've narrowed two bikes in Canada that are very similar, the main differences are:
Northrock XC00 469.99$
4 inch wide tires
32 spokes front an back
Mongoose Mushaboom 368.42$
4.5 inch wide tires
36 spokes front and back
I know nothing about bikes and I haven't road one in 25 years :-)
I prefer the XC00 even if it's 100$ more than the Moshaboom
It seems sturdier in the photos
Is the XC00 aluminium frame and 32 spokes not recommended for a 135 kg rider?
Is there another bike for 135 kg rider under 500$?
