Thought I should drop in and introduce myself.
I'm new to riding, in fact I just ordered my first bike, a Gravity Ave B from BD. I'm looking forward to getting it home and getting on the thing! Luckily I've got a good friend here in town that rides and will be helping me along the way. Hopefully I'll take a lot advice away from here as well.
I'm a big guy and here to stay. Right now I've got 275lbs packed on a 5'10" frame, I'm down from a little over 340 and hope to end somewhere in the 210-220 range. I don't think I'll ever be leaving this sub-forum though, while I was in the Marine Corps and actually hitting the gym HARD everyday my best weight was 207 at 6% BF. I think my goal may be a bit of a challenge but I'll be happy anywhere near that.
Looking forward to learning all I can and getting into shape while avoiding the dreaded ground pounding 3 times a week!
