Yet more questions/ old guy trails bike?

Mark/Lotus:

What size are you? I am 58, 6-foot 225lbs, big feet. Can I really fit on this Explorer?

I am fixated on getting back to single track. I loved my KTM 200 XC-W. But I thought I was a hero and kept crashing or getting spit off on slippery rocks and stuff. Broke a leg and stuff.

Then a had knee replacement a year ago and am now feeling confident enuf to do technical trails.

The Sherco X-Ride is attractive too though I am spooked by the bad build quality some have tagged it with.

I hear the Beta 300 RR could be an old man's trail bike. But that's a race bike.

I want to be in control not racing on the edge with a bike that's too highly strung for plonking.

Do you fit okay on the Explorer?

Thanks for your time.

Ted
