    What do you reccomend for me

    Here's my stats

    5' 11"

    250 lbs

    and i'm still growing
    .....

    I think I definately fit in to the Clydesdale category and I was wondering what you would reccomend for a man of my stature who is looking for a road bike. I really am strapped for bucks and have been reduced to looking at department stores. i don't want to go that route. I mentioned that to show my price range.

    I saw this at the bike store the other day and it looked like a sturdy cheap choice if you have limited means

    Look on craigslist. Since you are in LA if you spend some time browsing craigslist you shouldn't have a problem finding a good deal on a bike.

    I paid $300 for my road bike and it came with a carbon fiber fork, spd pedals, Shimano 105 components, the combo brake/shifters on the handlebars, and a computer. There are excellent deals to be found on craigslist, you just have to look everyday at the new postings and check stuff out. It took me about a week to find my bike.
