Our bikes are tested in accordance with industry testing standards and regulations, which require that a variety of tests be conducted at different weights and forces. There are a number of factors that impact how much weight a bicycle can withstand, including the type of riding, proper assembly, bicycle maintenance, and tire inflation. It is important to make sure your bicycle is properly assembled and maintained. The owner's manual will provide a time table for the maintenance that needs to be performed. It is also important to check your tire pressure on a regular basis.
If biking is a new activity for you, we recommend you consult with your doctor before starting a new exercise routine.
