I am 6'5 (195cm) weight fluctuates between 300-330 lbs (136-150 kg) Looking for commuter bike for Nashville. Hilly terrain. Budget 300-900 US dollars. Any suggestions?

  • How tall are you? I suspect your best starting point would be a steel fat tire bike with 26" wheels as smaller wheels will be stronger. Commented Jun 20, 2022 at 16:22

    Hi, welcome to bicycles! I'm afraid that specific recommendation questions aren't on-topic because the answers are frequently overly specific for a generally useful question, and the answers don't age well either.

    The question doesn't necessarily need to be closed. It can be changed to two questions: 1- is it possible to find a bike frame maker who mass-produces bike frames for someone heavier than 115 kg (the typical maximum weight quoted in bicycle sheets), and 2- does any wheel builder make wheels that can take 60+ kg. If you can't find a bicycle off-the-shelf, you might at least be able to assemble it, without having to go the route of building a custom frame + wheels.
