The Mrs and I did 6 miles today. Very proud of our accomplishment so far. Still need to build stamina. The Zize bike is the best bang for the buck for a large person looking for a healthy activity to get fit and lose weight. At 6 ft. 6 inches and 300 lbs the bike supports my weight and cycling is fun but you do have to work at it. Generally the Zize 29er max is a great bike. If I had to change anything for someone my height I would have a longer frame and higher handlebars but for most big riders Zize bikes are definitely the ride to buy. Pricey? Maybe. But how much would you pay to be healthy and have a piece of equipment that is safe to use for a person of your size? The thing is you must make a decision to do something for health and wellbeing but once you do you have to commit to it. It will be hard when you first start. But it will not be long before you start feeling better. You'll start slowly and move on from there. The best part is you will have fun and the breeze feels good on your face and body. So all of you newbies including me let's get cranking and let's see those pictures of you guys riding and we can keep each other motivated!!! Joan it was great talking to you personally when my bike arrived. The seat was in the box.

    It had been 30 years since I’d ridden. A typical summer vacation for me was an extended multi day ride. After my cancer diagnosis, it became imperative for me to improve my health. I’m thrilled to be back on my way to health by eating better and riding daily. My goals: get healthy, and live long enough to walk my daughter down the aisle.

    Have had this bike for over 2 years, and I ride it every single day. Without adding anything else to my routine, I’ve lost 75 pounds, just riding. So solid. Such an excellent investment

    I love my Zize Bike because, as a 6ft tall person, it was hard to find a bike that fit! I used to love to bike as a kid, and I thrilled to reinvigorate that love when I go off to college this fall. My campus is within biking distance of all kinds of fun activities in Roanoke, and I want to take advantage of them while both exercising and having a great time 🙂

    I wanted to get back into riding but being 6’7” and 300 pounds it is hard to find resources for riders my size. So excited to find you guys and purchase my own Zize Bike. This thing rocks!

    The main reason I got my Zize Bike is so I can finally ride bikes with my 10 year old daughter. I had been searching high and low for a bike that would support my weight. I am so excited to be able to ride with my daughter and to know that we will have so many great times together because of my Zize Bikes investment.

    Thanks so much for offering bikes like this! I am so glad you are providing these bicycles. My son, who the bike is for, is mentally challenged and he loves to ride his bike. Bikes were never big enough so we would go through lots of tires, rims and frames. Again, I thank you.

    Love it! I’m 6-3” and weigh 375 lbs. I love cycling, but snapped my hybrid bike frame last summer. I’ve been struggling to find a suitable bike since. I live in the UK and couldn’t find a suitable bike at any price locally, but this firm was recommended to me by an expert at a big national bike shop. This bike arrived last week and I love it. I had to fix on handlebars, pedals, seat and front wheel and mud guard myself. The mud guard was the fiddliest bit. The seat was huge, and padded like sofa. I’ve taken it off and replaced it with a smaller one from my old bike. My wife wants the big seat for her bike though, so nothing wasted! The bike looks like a really well made, strong, expensive commuter bike, but with massive tires. I’ve been using it on road and on canal tow paths. Its smooth and comfortable and silent to ride. The internal nexus 8 speed years are great. You can change gear while stationary, which is handy for traffic lights, and they are advertised as maintenance free, so fingers crossed I’ll have no bother there. I’m certainly not missing the 27 gears on my previous bike, and I cycled up the pretty steep 5 Rise Locks in Bingley yesterday which is the steepest stretch I ever tackled on my old bike. My only complaint is that the bottom bracket is a tiny bit loose. Its beyond my skill to fix so I’m taking it to a shop this week. I had to pay a fortune in shipping to the UK, and another fortune in UK import duty but the bike was worth it. All in all, I love this bike, and as the sun is shining, I’m off out right now for a ride.

29er Max 2.0 – The perfect bike for fitness!

Easy to Ride
Our 29er Max is our best bike for health and getting in shape as it is the easiest to ride. 29ers are built with extra-large wheels (1 ½” bigger than traditional bike wheels), are typically designed by most bike companies strictly for mountain biking. The 29er Max 2.0 is designed as a cruiser, to provide stunning maneuverability and ease of riding. What this means for you is that you can take your bike anywhere you want to ride it, and it will provide you with smooth, comfortable, and fast riding on most terrains.

Super-Strong and Built to Last
Our 29er Max 2.0 is modeled directly on our top-selling New Leaf 2.0, using the front and rear Shimano disc brakes, a custom chromoly steel frame and front fork, forged alloy shaft, and a double bolted seat post. Its pedals are made with a forged alloy platform and a chromoly spindle, and are perfect to accommodate bigger riders. Wheels include spokes made of professional quality stainless steel; extra wide, double wall alloy rims; wide tires with high thread count, and inner tubes with Slime sealant which repeatedly seals punctures like magic!

Looking for comfort?
Between the high thread count, extra-wide tires and the very comfortable saddle, this bike will make sure that your enjoyment includes not only knowing you’re doing something great for your health, but also for your physical enjoyment.

Easy Maintenance
The 29er Max 2.0’s 8-speed internal gear system allows for plenty of range and it means no stress for you. Since the gears are enclosed in a hub, you will no longer have problems with chains falling off, and you can climb hills with ease. You can shift gears in any position—while pedaling, while cruising, or from a complete stop—nothing to coordinate here. The internal gears will make your every push count and make your uphill rides energy-efficient. Not needing to oil your chain after rides also means it’s zero maintenance, another way it makes it easy to stay healthy and keep up with all the demands on your time.

Have Fun, Be Safe, and Get Fit at the Same Time
29er Max 2.0 is an ideal bike for riders who want to increase their physical fitness and health and are somewhat comfortable on a bike. It is styled a little like a mountain bike on bigger wheels, built like a truck, and has the strength and comfort of a Zize Bike.
There’s no other bike on the market that is so ideally suited for heavy riders looking to get fit and have fun.

Due to the larger tires (which means a lower weight capacity), the weight limit for the 29er Max is a maximum of 450 pounds.
