@Cding871 Thanks for reaching out!
We can definitely make some suggestions of bikes for you to check out, however, it would be helpful if you could answer a couple of questions for us to help guide our advice: What kind of riding are you looking to do? Trail riding? Mountain biking? Road riding? Commuting? Are you looking to simply get out and ride for fun? Or are you looking to progress your skill level? I.e. Are you getting into mountain biking and would like to ride more challenging terrain? Are you riding for fitness but hope to do a century or triathlon someday?
Additionally, sizing a bike properly depends on a lot of factors, however we typically start with your inseam. Because you're over 6 feet tall you are likely a large or an extra-large frame size but if you can share your inseam length that would be helpful to know as well.
Here are some different options of bikes that you could think about. This is a broad listing so we hope you come back and share some more information so we can help you narrow down your choices. We are listing Co-op Cycles bikes here because they all have a weight rating of 300 pounds. As a bigger guy myself (300+ lbs and 6 feet tall) I can tell you that they can handle more weight than that, you just want to be thoughtful about how aggressive your riding may be and that additional weight puts additional wear and tear on the components of the bike. Sometimes upgrading the bike and components can be more cost effective than having to replace them entirely after they wear out. Here are some bikes to think about:
Gravel/Road Touring Adventure Bikes
Hopefully this gives you some good information and helps you narrow down what you're looking for in a bike. Circle back with us to let us know what you're thinking and we can provide some more detail and information. Thanks!
@Cding871 Thanks for getting back to us via email!
If you're simply looking for a bike that is fun to ride, we recommend the Co-op Cycles DRT 1.1 for a more trail oriented approach to cycling fun or the Co-op Cycles CTY 2.1 for a more pavement oriented approach. Either of those bikes are fun to ride! If you're curious about bike sizing we recommend the Expert Advice article Bike Fitting Basics.
Hope this helps, feel free to reach out with any other questions!
