So I am an overweight college student on a college budget. I really can't afford to spend over $350 on a bike and my main goal is to just shred some weight. I'm 5'9" 225 pounds. I've been looking around online and I ran across a deal on Costco for a Schwinn Traveler Flat Bar Road Bike and here is the link ... Bike
I've had a couple of my biker friends chime in and I decided to go to a couple local bike shops and ask around. But this deal just seems like it would be ideal for me price wise. The frame size states "Medium" and I've been fitted for a 52-53cm frame size so I'm not sure if I would fall into a Medium. If I could get any feedback regarding this bike as well as road bikes that would work for me in general, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks and nice to meet all of you!
