I picked up my Specialized Hardrock Pro Disk in a 24 inch frame . I got the LBS to change the tires to road tires, add a pair of bar ends, computer and lock. I have question. Is it possible to raise/change the handle bars so that Im in a more upright stance? I will post some pics soon. I rode 5 miles this evening and I'm already sore. Well Im starting out 364 pounds, 6'5". I didn't up grade the front forks, the LBS informed that you are able to lock the front forks on the pro and hopefully no problems. It really felt good to get out there and ride w/ my wife. My goal is 230 pounds and cant wait to accomplish it. Well I got get up 6 am and get in 40-60 minutes.
Congratulations on the new ride, you'll be putting up the big miles in no time. Take things easy at first until your body becomes accustomed to riding a bicycle again. Also be sure to share your adventures with us.

Hey man, congratulations on taking a big first step You'll be smashing hills in no time.
Your LBS should have fitted you to the bike already. If they haven't you really oughta take it back in there and have them measure you out. Having your bike fit properly is crucial to how sore you are the next day.
