Bigger riders

How does the suspension handle heavier riders, I'm 16stone and wondered if anyone has any feedback?

That's not 'bigger'

That's slightly on the meaty side

Hi VillanJC I'm just under 16 stone and 6ft I took the rear to max but was to course for UK roads so I am now just 2 clicks below the middle factory setting I have also moved the bars forward to the front holes I think that has balanced the bike out and put the levers in a much better angle.
