    hi All,

    I started cycling to work in the last 6 months and really enjoying it. I want to invest in a half decent hybrid / tourer that has plenty of weight capacity as im not the smallest and also have to carry laptop & clothes etc.

    Ive spotted a tourer on Decathlon with 170kg limit which is way more than enough - stock is questionable.

    Also found the Giant Escape 2 which i think also has more than enough in terms of weight capacity, however there is 2 weight limits that i dont fully understand - both are more than enough i might add. Any idea why 2 weight categories - i would have through touring / trekking would have had lower limits due to unsure ground conditions.
