answer 4
You might want to test it out in the store. It supports me and I am 6'3" and 292 pounds and there is no sudden lowering of my seat due to the suspension being strained. On my schwinn (i returned since gearing was damaged/installed wrong) it was a different story and it shrunk in height by 1.5 inches. I would test it out. If the suspension does not shrink more than an inch you should be ok. If it does, you might want to look at a 29" bike.

No. You would have to measure your stand-over height and go from there. I am not sure of the stand-over height, nor do I know the size of the frame. My guess is that this bike has a 17" frame. Most are average size 17 or 18. At 6'7", I would have to guess 20" frame will be needed, or get a 29" wheel bike. They have a slightly larger stand-over height because of the larger wheels and frame.

26" refers to the size of the tire. I do not know the frame size, but I do suggest that someone of your height may be more comfortable on a 29" bike, such as the Mongoose Deception:

answer 2
It is fine for my height and I am 6'3". I have a 32" inseam and when you measure the crotch down to the bike I have a 1.5" gap. (Don't be a perv, that is how you measure if a bike is right for you!) You may need a 29" bike since you would have like a 5" gap and it is only supposed to be about 2" max from what I saw on youtube. If anyone is reading this you measure by standing over the bike between the saddle and the handlebars. If their is a 2" gap or so between your legs and the bike then the bike "should" be the right size for you. There are other considerations, but a general rule of thumb if deciding on a bike or even just a wheel size.

You would be fine with a 36" inseam. The bar starts at about 30 inches at the seat post. It goes as high as 33" at the handlebars. The handlebars may be a little low for you. Im 6' and i think the neck isnt really long enough for me.

are you sure you didnt set the breaks too tight, try re-addjusting the break wire let it loose a bit, and if it still rubs or if its too loose, then you can take that back to a wallmart store (w/ ur receipt) and they should be able to replace it/fix it.

Take it to a bike shop, not Wal-Mart. You may have put the wheel on crooked or the rotor (I don't ride Wal-Mart bikes, I don't know). The rotor may have also bent in shipping.

I think there is an adjustment screw where you can increase the gap between the disk and the pad. Google bike disk adjustment and it should be able to sort you out on youtube with step by step instructions.

answer 4
You can do this yourself. There are two bolts that hold the brake on. Loosen those two bolts and squeeze the lever on your handle bar tight. Re-tighten the two bolts with your allen wrench and let go of the lever. If the brake still rubs, you can adjust the pad. If you look on the backside of your brake pad, there is a place on the pad you can stick an allen wrench and give it a (very) slight turn. This will move the pad closer or further away from the disc.

If you are uncomfortable doing this yourself, you can take it to the store and the tech might be able to do it for you, assuming he knows how.

answer 5
I had the same problem. Tighten the wheel down and then turn it upside down so it is resting on the seat and handlebars. Now looking at the disc brake assembly from the back side you will see two 5mm allen head bolts. Loosen those a little and the disc brake assembly will move letting you adjust it so it will not touch the brake pads at all.

I'm not sure, but if you try tightening one nut on either side of the wheel more than the other, it can help. Experiment with it a little, if not, try the store.

I'm about the same size, an inch taller and a few pounds heavier. I personally would buy a bike from a bike shop because this frame would be way too small. You should get a size 21" frame. If you don't want to spend hundreds or thousands on a bike I would recommend a Trek 820 (about $300.). It has most of the same parts also.

Yes it is. I am 6'3" and 292 pounds. It fits me just fine and it does not buckle under my mass or look small under me. It is great for road and general bike riding. I have been using it for a week now and had no problems with it. Just if you buy one, get a softer/wider seat and some metal pedals.

answer 4
It is a fine fit for you. My dads 6'2 and his only complaint was the handle bars to far forward for his cruising stance (he likes to sit back). He put raised handle bars off ebay for $20.
I ride mine on the trails, so I like the stance. (6'0)

Its a fine road bike, but it is heavy, I'd look for a lighter bike (Genesis has a road bike that looks pretty darn good), I've ridden lighter bikes and the pedal effort difference is ENORMOUS. The rear suspension absorbs a lot of the power (If you need a mountain bike, get a front suspension only if you plan on doing a lot of road).

Also if you do get this bike, and do road, upgrade the tires to more road tires, youll notice a huge difference.

Wheel size is 26, Depending on how the bike is used, hubs and rims tend to bend and get damaged. blueskycycling.com usually has good prices on quality wheelsets for mountain bikes. Up for an option with sealed bearing hubs. Wheels wiill last longer and perform way better.

And they won't be. Though they claim a warranty, you'll never see any backing on it. Find a local bike shop and take it in. That's what I did with mine. Wal-Marts answer was return it. My repairs cost less than $45. Just keep in mind, when you buy a bike from Wal-Mart, you're paying for the frame. You will wind up replacing parts sooner or later.
