i am a 25 year old rugby player who has never done much road biking. i broke my leg in a tournament on saturday, and can't put any weight on it for at least 4 weeks. but, when i am able to get back on my feet, i am thinking that road biking will be a great way to get my cardio back and slowly work my legs back into shape. now that the sob story is over, i have a couple of questions:
1. being a larger guy( 6'2" @210lbs) is there a particular type of bike i should be looking at, or simply larger sizes?
2. for a guy with a light wallet, would people recommend the LBS or going used? say, an 03 cannondale for $550 or a base model allez from the LBS for $800?
