The Samson is a BIG and TALL bike with Day-6's trademark easy-riding semi-recumbent forward crank design.
Per Day-6 ,
The official bicycle of 6'5", 287 pound, 18 year NFL veteran and 7 time Pro Bowler Lomas Brown and 6'10", 380 pound, 19 year NBA veteran, Piston's power forward and World Champion Rick Mahorn.
Big & Tall is a common term these days. Not so common is a bicycle that can comfortably carry that person.
