This is my first post here.
I am a true Clydesdale. I am 5'11" and will admit to 299 and 9/10ths lbs. ( I surely couldn't be 300 lbs.!).
I am looking at getting a new bike. I think that the Hybrids are my best choice, and I like the look/feel of the Cypress DX. (Silver/Silver). My excellent LBS has a leftover 2006 that will go for 333.00 (370.00 -10% discount).
What are your thoughts. Does anyone else have this bike, and how does it hold up while carrying a gentleman of substance? Are there any other bikes that I should strongly consider?
I am by no means an expert but I just test rode just about everything. The Cypress was cool it a nice comfortable ride. One thing to consider is a bike without suspesion if you are going to do mostly ride on paths or the road. I ended up geting a Trek 7.2 fx last week. It felt much quicker but just slightly less plush.
Thanks for the feedback!
I stopped by my bikeshop and closed the deal on the Cypress DX. I am picking it up tomorrow! I did look at the Trek, but the Cypress seemed to fit me better.
I'll post pictures soon.
