ok so my girlfriend and i have been mtn biking for a few years now. we decided to give road biking a try and found some cheap road bikes to start out with. we plan to upgrade some parts soon and some later.
we would love to have some input from the people who know more about bikes than we do. so first ill start with some pictures.
The tires are bell tires
the wheels are a brand i dont really know.
i basically dont know about most of the components on it.
I an 280 lbs. and was wondering about what parts i should upgrade.
i was thinking about changing the handlebars, brakes and making it not a single speed. i live in a bit of a hilly area. eventually once i am comfortable on the road bike i will go clipless.
any advice would be great!
oh i took it for a little ride and i guess my seat was too low as my legs were really cramped. i also felt a bit of lower back pain.
