I'm 6-6, 275 and live in the New Orleans area. Use to run 3-5 miles about 4/5 days a week. Nagging knee injuries forced me to find other ways to stay in shape. Joined the local gym to workout, weights/cardio....started swimming 3 days a week. Now I want to add bike riding to my regiment.
Inquired about bikes through a few local shops, prices ranging between $500 and $1000 for a decent hybrid bike. I'm just looking for something to ride a few days a week, maybe use in some sprint-triathlons. One bike shop rep suggested that if I went with a cheaper, big-box store bike, that I may not enjoy the ride and then may not enjoy cycling.
Thinking of stopping by one of the shops today after work to see what they have and maybe looking for some "insider" information from you guys.
Any help is appreciated!!!
