I finally took the plunge and joined because I couldn't find the answer anywhere else and am sure someone here could help me.
I am 340 lbs and have decided its total crap to wait until I am lighter to buy a bike. My daughter loves biking, my husband likes biking and I used to like biking but then I let my weight decide that I couldn't do it anymore.
I want a cruiser type bike, I have actually fallen in love with an Electra Deluxe 3i with the step through frame. My question is, have you ever heard of a larger person riding one? From reading threw lots and lots of posts, I gather I should look into getting a custom back tire/rim. It has an alloy rims with 26 x 2.125 tires, should I go up to a large tire (26 x 3") Thoughts?
