I'm getting older, must move more. Youngest son wants to ride more... pretty easy to figure out what to do. The problem is very limited $$. Freecycle has been generous and now I have a old trek 10-speed w/531 frame to fix up for the road that seems like it will be big enough for me, but what to do about trails & dirt roads? I've got a few "normal" size dept-store bikes but they're all really too small. I'm looking for a short-term solution as I am in lust/love with a Bianche but it's not going to happen any time soon. Is there such a thing as an "S"-shaped seat post to make my junker (dept-store mtn bike) fit my waif-like 6'4" 295-lb physique for the short-term? How about adding BMX style handlebars to gain height on the short stem? I think we can do some serious riding down to the lake to go swimming this summer.
Any feedback is appreciated
*edit* oops, found the correct thread about seatposts in the stickys, missed it the first time through.
