Whatever you may think, the Samson is not only for big riders. The Samson is our top of the line, high end 24 speed bike with upgraded brakes, tires, rim, and frame. Yes, it has a heavy duty frame and 40 spoke wheels to handle a 400 pounder but people of all sizes can appreciate its beefiness.
The new Samsons have a wider rear triangle giving you the option to upgrade the standard 26″x2.4″ tire to a 26×3.0, 26×3.5, or a 26×4.0 tire or anything in between. With the purchase of an optional fat fork, you can also increase the size of your front tire. (Personally, we like the look and performance of a Vee Rubber Speedster 26×3.5 on the rear and a 26×2.8 Speedster on the front.)
The official bicycle of 6’5″, 287 pound, 18 year NFL veteran and 7 time Pro Bowler Lomas Brown and 6’10”, 380 pound, 19 year NBA veteran, Piston’s power forward and World Champion Rick Mahorn.
Big & tall is a common term these days. Not so common is a bicycle that can comfortably carry that person.
All the legendary comfort and ergonomics of a day 6 with the strength to carry riders up to 400 pounds due to a beefed up frame and upgraded components. You don’t have to be oversized to appreciate the upgraded features on the Samson.
