Bikes Engineered for 400 lbs+
A New Leaf 2.0
What you need to know about buying a bike if you weigh more than 400lbs.
You have looked around and seen bikes with prices from $139 at Walmart to $10,000 at the high-end bike shops. The truth is, only a small % of these bikes can actually support your weight safely. Bikes for riders over 300lbs must have specific features that lighter riders just don’t need.

Bike Options for Heavy Riders
If you weigh more than 400 pounds, you basically have three choices…
Have a bike custom built.
Do you have lots of time and money? Have a frame custom built by someone who understands the strength you’ll need. Once the frame is built, you’ll need to find a pro to assemble your bike, using carefully selected parts for each element of the bike. When you’re done you can expect that it will take about a year and the cost will be around $10,000.
Settle for something not built for your size.
You may decide that you just don’t want to spend big bucks for a bike. So you invest in something that is cheaper, less well made. There are countless ways a cheaply-made bike could fail you, disappoint you, or have a short life span. Beware of catastrophic breakages—they can happen! Visit Youtube.com and search under "Bikes breaking compilation." It is not pretty, safe, or reassuring.
Buy a Zize Bike.
We design the best bikes, verified by professionals who test the strength, comfort, and capacity. We have specialty builders with whom we work intensely to ensure an amazing, high quality product. We proudly continue to offer a bike unlike any other, in its strength, comfort, and beauty. The fact that owning these bikes really matters to you, our riders, makes every step of this journey worth it.
I invite you to think long and hard about the consequences of each of these options, and strongly encourage you to select the Zize Bikes choice. Or, if you’ve got lots of time and money, build your own. But choice #2, settling, could be a dangerous option. Chances are you’re looking to bike for your health, so don’t sabotage yourself with a bike that can be dangerous for you to ride.
