I'm 37, and haven't been bike riding for maybe 15 years or so. (Nasty accidents have a habit of making one shy away from something.) But since then, I've gotten married and had a kid, and the wife and baby love to go riding on parkways and other bike trails. So I think I need to buy a bike.
Here's the gory details. I'm 6'5" and weigh about 360lbs. (Yes, I hope to lose a few lbs) I guess that makes me a super clydesdale. My wife has a very nice Giant Sedona, and we got an In-step trailer for the brat, which while inexpensive has been performing quite well. My wife took her bike into the shop where she bought it yesterday for a tuneup, and I asked the salesguy to show me an appropriate bike for a big boy like me. They are a Giant dealer, and he showed me the Rincon. (http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-US/...tain/10/28392/)
It seems nice, and I gave it a whirl in the parking lot. (Guess what, riding a bike after 15 years is well.... like riding a bike.) It's a 22" frame, and seemed to fit fine, I'd prefer a comfort bike, but I have to get something that will hold up. It's got 36 spoke wheels and double walled tires and rims, and I asked him if it would withstand me...
Anyway, what I'm asking is, should I take his advice and go with that, or should I really be looking at something else like say a Kona Hoss or something sturdier?
