Thoughts on new bike
 
3 Attachment(s)
Hey guys thoughts on the look of me on this bike.its a 2015. I want the Stryker but I felt like I was too big. Very disappointed. I’m 6’4”, 280 pounds with a 35” inseam. Is there anyone with my dimensions who modded their bike to fit them. I felt like I needed to raise the bars and get forward control extensions also raise the bike some (is that a thing) also this will be my very first bike.

Once you have some forward controls and some risers, it'll feel a much, much better fit.

I'll second that ^^^. Also, welcome to the forum!

Hi VonJay, beautiful bike and I concur with Easy and Draeger. I love the feel with the 3" extensions.

You might want to look at the Raider. About 2" extra stretch before adding controls etc.

At your size, there really are only going to be a few bikes that are big enough to feel "right"...

I second the raider. my neighbor is about 6'2 and told me he is very comfortable compared the stryker he sat on. longer wheel base and all that makes a nice difference

it's too small for you. get something else

Ideal height for Stryker is 5'7'' I guess. It fits me so perfectly.

Thanks guys. I’ll find a raider to sit on to compare

Welcome to the forum and it will be hard for you to be comfortable on this bike. Even with forward controls.
