I checked the thread index and didn't see a question like this one.
Situation: 330lbs. riding again for fun and health.
Bike is a 1976 Schwinn Suburban 10 speed. I zipp around on it pretty well but it is uncomfortable. Even with the upright handlebars my sitting position is a little cramped. I'm getting poked where I dont want to be poked...if you know what I mean.
I am sure the problem is because of my weight. I need a bike to help me peel off another 40 to 50 pounds so I can be more comfortable on my suburban or some other similar bike.
Question: Is there a good quality bike that has a pedal forward geometry somewhere between my schwinn, and ,let's say, an electra?
After a recent 6 mile ride my wrists were tired from leaning over and I would have been a-little more comfortable with the pedals out forward a-little more.
