I have put a couple of stone on and I am now a hefty 16st 10ib

As such I thought I would start again with a mountain bike as I think I am too heavy for my Carbon road bike at the moment.

So I thought I would look for a Mountain bike that would carry my weight and also be fun on and off the road.

Would this bike be ok if I changed to some slick tyres? ... 2011%29%0A

Any advise appreciated

    Ok for what?

    Yes it's fine for your weight and will be quicker on road with slicks

    Why not consider buying a decent second hand one for half the price unless you plan on using it for a few years but any good quality framed bike with decent parts will be ok .
