Would this 21-speed road bike work for someone who is around 5-feet tall?
Unfortunately, the large size 700c GMC Denali racing bike is a bit on the tall side and would be rather awkward and not very comfortable for someone who was right around five feet tall.
It would be recommended that you look at the one of the smaller variations of this bike. This is especially true if you would be planning on it being a bike you would use for longer rides.
Would anything about it make it a bad choice for someone who weighs 250+ pounds?
The GMC Denali Road Bike 25 inch Large is the biggest version of the Denali Road Bike and its high strength construction and large rims and tires makes it much more stable.
With that said, there is no real reason why someone who weighs 250 pounds or more would have any trouble riding this specific bike.
Would it be recommended as a commuter bike for work?
One of the biggest limitations of this bike would have to be the seat.
It is not really all that comfortable and if you were planning on it to be a commuter bike, we would highly recommend the first thing you do is swap the seat for a much more comfortable one.
The 2017 GMC Denali road bike would make a really good starter bicycle for someone who is wanting to get into cycling.
