I just googled cycling forums looking for advice and low and behold here's one dedicated to people my size. WHOO HOO!
I'm 6'4" and roughly 275 lbs. I've been told by a few people that I'm going to have to invest a bit more money into a bike that can handle me. Unfortunately, I don't have a very big budget. We're talking around $500 tops.
I keep waffling on whether to get a road or a mountain bike. We've got some amazing trails in my area but I don't think I could afford a bike that could handle my weight and I'm a little nervous about crashing out in the woods by myself.
I'm pretty sure most of my riding would take place on pavement and I'd love to get a trailer or a seat for my 13 month old so perhaps a road bike would be the better investment?
So, with all that vaguery, any advice?
