I have been a lurker for about 6 months here. Just reading the forum in general. I have been riding for a about 2 weeks and I am addicted. My main reason for getting a bike is to help get my strength back in my legs and it is just a good exercise.
I have read that a mountain bike is a good bike for heavy people. I weight 300lbs right now. And I read that the Specialized hardrock is a good starter bike.
I went to the LBS and tried it out I liked it. When to another LBS and they had a GT 2009 Outpost Disc. I liked this one better and it was within my budget. So am a proud owner of a GT 2009 Outpost Disc.
This bike is going to be used for my recovery and for fun. I did not know how much I would like riding but I love it.
I got a question.
I am a xxxl in t-shirts. What size would I be in a jersey? And what is a site to get one at? The LBS don't have a big selection and not for my size.
