Greetings from Frederick Md!
New to the boards, returning to cycling after 20 yrs. I was 309 lbs when i bought my Specialized crossroads elite. I've lot 5 lbs in my first week of intake control and exercise. Currently i ride after/before work approx 5-6 miles up and down some slight grades. All in all i'm still very motivated and enjoying my new found routine.
I found i'm slowly trying to change my 'comfort' bike to more of a road bike. I've dropped the bars, raised the seat and will be looking this w/e to maybe change the bars altogether to some road bike type (any opinions about this welcomed). I just feel like i want to "GO!" and i feel more comfortable laid out and pedaling rather than sitting up.
Anyway, waves to all. Updates will probably be done on Saturdays (when i weight myself). Short term goal is 250, long term 180.
