Heya all, I have recently acquired my first bike since I was a child and started poking around for some info on bike accessories etc and stumbled upon this forum and thought I would join up, I posted in the intro area and was pointed here. I have recently lost a ton of weight (not literally obviously but its more than 200 pounds, yes two hundred pounds that's not a typo lol) and I did it by walking/running and riding a stationary bike so in a basic progression am moving onto a normal bike, I bought a K2 Zed 3.2 and just took it out for her maiden voyage this morning in fact and man did it kick my behind! literally! I think a new seat will be in order sooner than later
I am a father of 2 and a husband to a lovely lady and I think that biking can help me progress further into my weight loss regimen while adding range and a change of scenery as well as a bit of cross training to add to my walking/running program. I stand 6'5'' tall and I started out over 500 pounds and right now weigh 333 pounds after about 17 months of better eating and way more exercise, I have always loved riding a bike but for obvious reasons stopped but I am back, with this new bike I am hoping to change up my exercise routine a bit for the warmer months and keep the weight coming off all while enjoying the road. Any opinions on the K2 bikes is welcomed as well as anything that could make riding more enjoyable for a larger stature fellow that I may be missing or is not obvious.
I am looking forward to gaining lots of knowledge that will help my biking and that's me in a nutshell.
Thanks for reading
