I have been using the 200 Metzler since the first tire change. Works very well and is the largest you can go without surgery. You might need to trim the belt guard on the bottom a bit for clearance. I believe the 200 makes the bike handle better and feels better suspension wise. I keep it at 39 pounds for single riding.
