My friends dad weighs in at 400 lbs. We met for breakfast awhile back and when I rode up on my bike he was very excited. He explained he used to be a runner and participated in several tri events in his younger days. He has asked me several times if I think it's possible for him to ride beacuse he loved it. He is actively trying to lose the weight and I'd like to help if possible...........
So is it? I'd love to build him a rig and show up on the porch with it. Where do I start? I was thinking a really hefty steel mountain bike with 40 spoke rims if I can find them. How about saddles?
Any input or advice?
