Yes yes, first off I've been boo'd and run off three other sites today because:
A) I'm over weight
B) I don't own a $2000 bike
C) I'm not buying a $3000 bike.
I'm a 22 year old 255LB 5' 11" univeristy undergrad for civil engineering.
I just had my birthday on the 25th of this month and which brings me to my question.
I have a o.k. 15 speed bike right now, jap bike royce union "Savoy" had it for a few years and I did a 9mile trek in a hour and 20 minutes. Mind you this is prime city roads one way with traffic and lights, and a back road for 2nd leg of trip.
Non the less I did it, and got in decent time I thought, longest ride for myself so far. New Record
I am looking for a decent road / mountian bike under $200. Yes I know in the world of bikes that's not much, but it's what I have and my current bike way back when did not cost but around $180.
Can anyone help me? or is this just a lost cause and pick out a bike from academy...
-hopeful and confused
P.S. I am also in a Greek Social Fraternity, thus the 255 I used to be 225....waaay back when
