I have been dreaming about what my next bike will be, and can’t seem to get GAS GAS out of my head. What seems irresistible is, that six-speed transmission among many other things. However, some of the posts here have stated that is it not really suited to a rider over 6 feet? Are there any tall GAS GAS riders out there and what needs to be done if anything to “make it fit”. I currently own a 00 300 EXC and it fits me well (I’m 6.2’) with the tall seat and CR high bend bars. Now I’m thinking maybe a 200 GAS GAS. Which brings me to my next question is the 200 as sturdy as the 300 or 250? What I really mean by this will stand up to fat person (240#) riding it? Now before you tell me that I will be disappointed in the power of a 200 let me just say that all of my riding is very tight very snotty woods so while the 300 is very good the power is tiring after just a short time. Set me straight ...I can take it. Thanks for any replies.
