I am a full time bike commuter, I got my girlfriend into casual biking, but there is one issue as she is just over 300lbs.
Actually this should not be an issue as she enjoys riding my old mountain bike, but it has hit the 12 yr old mark and I can no longer get the elastomers for the fork. So...time for a new bike (other parts are also hard to find)...bah.
Almost every crusiers list a top weight of 250 lbs, which will not do. Where should I be looking?
She is committted biker as she goes out riding with me 2 days a week or so (and walks 4-5 miles without me) rain or shine. She is steadily losing weight, but at a pound or two a week (which is the upper limit of proper and safe) the issue of a bike carrying a heavier frame is still an issue.
Help narrowing frames down, so to speak?
