the last time I road a bike was in middle school. and Now i'm in my fourth year in college and I find I need to lose a little weight. check that, a lot of weight. I'm about 6' 350lb and am looking for a bike to ride to school and work an maybe other places around town. I live in indianapolis close to my school and work.
so my questions are these,
can I buy just an ol bike on craigslist for super cheap and ride it safely?
or would I have to shell out a couple of hundred on something I may not stick with?
and would any ol road bike hold my fat ass?
if a mountain bike is better to hold me, would it be better to get tires for the road? (I heard they make them but I could be wrong)
so yea... any help is apreciated.
