Good afternoon all...
Imagine my surprise when I go looking for advice on how to buy a bike that'll support my weight so that I can start shedding the pounds, to find this part of a bike forum.
As the title implies, I'm about 175% of a clydesdale, weighing in right now at just under 350.
I need some advice on how to purchase a bike that won't force me to re-mortgage the house, but will still make riding enjoyable so I have a reason to stick to it, and no excuses to quit.
I've read a little about the different types of bikes - in the past, as a kid I rode a mountain bike all the time - that was pre-weight gain.
I'm at a point in my life where I need to get out and exercise. I don't jog well, and it's not fun, so that's out. I walk my dogs daily, about 2-3 miles a day, but that's just not enough.
I'd appreciate any info you fine folks can provide about what to look for when selecting a bike that will meet the aforementioned needs.
Thanks, happy riding!
