Riding a bicycle used to be fun. Then we got older and heavier and sitting on a skinny seat while bending over the handlebars lost its appeal. If you are over 260 pounds, forget it. Traditional bicycles generally don’t handle large people and they certainly don’t do it comfortably. All that changed in 2012, with the arrival of Samson.
The name invokes images of strength and power, as does the new Samson from Day 6 Bicycles. From its beefed up frame to the front & rear Avid BB7 disc brakes, from dual seat struts and double-wall Alex rims with eyelets to its heavy duty spokes and upgraded cranks, hubs, and bottom bracket, the Samson is all that the name implies.
But it is so much more than a bicycle that can accommodate riders up to 400 pounds. Like its Day 6 counterparts, the Samson boasts a one-of-a-kind cockpit that includes a 16", injection molded seat and contoured backrest. A lower seat allows both feet to easily reach the ground when stopped and a low step over simplifies entry and exit. Last but not least, the Samson's easy to reach handlebars allow you to sit up and relax which eliminates stress on the wrists, neck, shoulders, low back, and crotch while providing a commanding view of the road.
Endorsed by ex-NBA & -NFL players like Rick Mahorn and Lomax Brown, the Samson makes biking fun again -- for everyone.
