hi guys, new to the forum and sport. i've started riding on a borrowed bike until i get my own. i had a look through the 'what bike?' section, and think the specialized rockhopper sounds like the kind of bike i'm after. i want the lightest frame possible for around 500-600 quid, so does this sound like a good choice?
i'm a 6'4" stocky chap, so i weigh over 16 stone, does this have any bearing on the choice i make? in the past i've had problems with pedals tearing the threads off the pedal arm thingy leaving the pedal angled and wobbly.
