We purchased the bike unassembled, and it says on the box that it can't be used by someone over 275 lbs.

If you carry most of the weight in your stomach, a mountain bike isn't going to be the most comfortable thing to ride because you've got to lean forward to hold onto the handlebars, and your stomach will get in the way of your knees when you're pedaling.

answer 7
I would advise against it, because I am 250 lbs and the rear bottoms out on me when hitting moderate bumps in the road. It feels like the wrim is hitting the pavement. This occurs even with the tires fully aired at 45 lbs and the rear suspension adjusted to a stiffer setting. Not too stiff because it defeats the purpose of having a rear suspension.

NO. If you want a bike that will handle that kind of weight then I would recommend a three wheeled bike and/or thick walled tires and tubes that are thicker.

answer 2
Yes, check out the Topeak CageMount Bicycle Water Bottle Cage Handlebar/Seatpost Mount available on Amazon.com and elsewhere. You can attach any standard bottle cage using this. My son has this bike and I got this mount for it. Works great. I mounted it to the handlebar stem between the headset and handlebars. I turned it so the bottle cage sets neatly in the corner created by the handlebars and stem. This also allows it to just clear the cables along the top tube, even though he would probably never turn the bars this far. Also, mounting it this way instead of up higher on the bars allows the bottle to set lower. It comes out working and looking great. The Topeak symbol in white on the black mount even matches the Hyper shield on the front of the bike.

No, there's no room for a water bottle cage. This is kind of a bummer, actually, since I just got the bike and didn't think about that beforehand. I think I might have to get a camelbak, or some other hydration backpack. I have seen some water bottles online that strap on the seat post or the handlebars...

youll chew the cheap tires up fairly quick, think my rear tire lasted 50 miles. the inner tubes are stupid cheap. its a 125 dollar bike.

answer 5
I have had no problems with the tubes blowing out yet. They do slowly lose pressure, so you have to maintain the pressure at 50 PSI. (Or as indicated on the tire) If you don't maintain proper air pressure, you will have a blow out. Thicker tubes will not help if the pressure gets low and the tires roll off the side of the rims.

answer 6
After the tires blow out the wheels will bend and cause the bearing to fall out of the sprockes. You will need to call the company for new wheels as well. It will keep falling apart everytime you ride it.
