Someone mentioned this question would be best posted in this forum. I have not owned a bike in ages. My primary reason is for excercise. I'm a fairly heavy guy. (About 270 lbs at most) I am getting ready to puchase a bike, but my money is extremely limited. I'd probably have to cap myself at $400 CDN, but might possibly be able to stretch it to $500 if needed. I'm looking to get the best bang for my buck, but have no idea what brands/models are good. Once I get used to biking again, and have built up a little endurance, I plan to start riding to work on it. Can anyone suggest any particular bike models that would suit me? I realize that if down the road if I really get in to biking, I may need to upgrade it, but I'll cross that bridge if/when I come to it.
