Also...a scrawny 220!! How tall are you ? 8 foot ? I'm 6'3", 185# am not scrawny also not MrT but dont have too much trouble hefting the bike around in the woods or picking it up (well the 10'th time does get a little tiring.)
Check out the weight training program posted a coupla months ago to drop some weight and put on some muscle !!

It's not the weight of the bike that's really kicking your butt....50% Is being outta shape, and the other 50% is not knowing how to properly utilize blues power to make up the difference for being out of shape.
From what you've said here, sounds like the 250 might be a better fit for your riding style.

I really feal fortunate to have a thin build, but I've ridden with some pretty thick guys that are too tough!!!
If your body type is big, then keep at a good weight for you. If you're a skinny ass like me, then keep at a good weight also. Nice thing about getting older is I think about what works (with my body) more than how good I look.
It ain't about getting girls anymore. Hell, they love bald men just as much.

I think the power has something to do with how heavy it feels. The faster you go the lighter it feels.
