My Cube Aim Pro 2021 model is being delivered this upcoming Saturday. I'm really happy about it because there was a huge run on mountain bikes, it will be my first.
Now my concern is I'm quite heavy (119kg) and this PDF file says for my hardtail Aim (I got the Pro but that one is not on the list) that a rider weight + bike weight should be not more than 115kg, so I'm way over that. But on the right it says that the weight limit is 140kg (then I should be good right?)
Now I'm wondering, what is it? And yes I know I'm way too heavy but that's why I'm getting an MTB, I'm going to start with riding gravel roads, no jumps or anything (I live in the Netherlands).
Should I just cancel the whole bike or just ride it? I'm really not sure if it's 115kg max or 140kg max.
Okay! I will only be adding a front and back mudguard, for the rest I won't be adding anything. The 115 is for the bike+rider and the extra 25kg is for lets say a backpack or a kickstand? And that makes 140kg but I wont be adding any cargo backpack or kickstand, only the mudguards.
What would you do? Cancel the bike or just use it because I don't want to destroy it in like a month of riding.
