    Hi,

    Is there any rider weight limit on the Giant TCR 1 Composite bike?

    If not, does anyone want to make and educated guess at what's safe?

    cheers hippy

  2. Unknown but I've had a 03 model for six months and weigh 185-190 lbs. I've noticed no flex or any
    other type problems.

    I ride a TCR Once. But a aluminium one. My weight is between 80 en 87 kg, depending of
    winter/summertime. Never had any triouble.

    A friend of mine has one, and he's weighing in at 230+ on the pounds scale, and he's had no problems
    with it. He normally jumps it off curbs, rides down stairs, and does other stupid things with it you
    shouldn't, and all is well.

    I'm posting this through google.....don't know what the problem is but all my google archives have
    now started to show up as gobbledegook.

    "This is a very difficult question. Bicycles are sized for both an ultimate load case and for
    fatigue life. I would imagine that a rider weight in the 90th pecentile would be reasonable for
    determining loads. Ultimate load would be several gs and would possibly result in wheel failure or a
    crash due to loss of control before frame damage. Fatigue life would be a reduction by factoring
    design weight to actual weight on an S~N curve. You could contact Giant directly with this question
    but make sure it is directed to their technical support and not their sales people."
