Default Re: 51 yrs old 6 foot 2 ... building a 29 onex

Welcome! I'm just over you by an inch, but weight's the important factor. I'm 280#, and ride a Genesis 29er mountainbike. There's plenty of info here on the Onyx...seems the mounting is a bit tricky, and the coaster-breaks are suspect, but no one seems to complain. I love my cheapo Genesis, but be aware that the hardware on these is Grade-C. if you're about my weight, the rear hub, axle, and spokes will show their weaknesses. Pay special attention to their maintenance.
