I've been trolling the forums for about 2 months, debating first on whether or not to buy a bike, and then what bike to buy.
I made the choice today, and will be going to my LBS (look at me, first post and I'm already using slang =P) to pick up the Giant Sedona I test rode last week.
I'm about 6'4" and 375 lbs, and my main motivation for biking is to get a bit healthier, and hopefully fit into my suit jacket again before the next person in my family gets married.
I've gotta say, when I test rode the bike, it was the most fun I've had in a long time, I really felt like a little kid again.
I wanted to ask everyone what, if any, accessories I might find useful when riding (for both commutes and pleasure), any advice on helmets, any possibly a cyclometer (want to log my rides and track my weight loss, if any)
Thank you everyone for the advice I've already gotten from trolling (mainly the decision to go from Wallyworld to my LBS) and I hope this will continue to be a valuable resource for me, and that I can maybe contribute something to the awesome community here at bikeforums.net.
