New year goal and bike advise
Happy New Year everybody,
I've been a member for a few months and have learned TONS from your help on this forum. Thank you!
2009 goal. I'm 340 now. Want to get under 300.
I want to ride more but my poor Schwinn Suburban with the 33 year old gumwall tires does not want to carry my weight. At my current weight, It is just not comfortable for me to ride.
I want to balance ease of riding and yet still get a good workout.
Does one get the same workout on a recumbent that one would get on a "cruiser" style bike.
I am considering the TREK Navigator 3.0 or a RANS recumbent. The rans looks really nice.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
