I thought Packer Fans were not allowed to post on Bike Forums??

Just kidding, congratulations on your teams Superbowl win this year.


If you weigh 360 and did 6 miles on your first ride I say you did ok. My first ride was less than a mile and I weighed just over 300. Of course I had some pretty big hills to defeat but none the less you went a good distance. By the end of today or tomorrow you will be hurting some but just keep at it.

Don't know much about your bike but I looked at the Genesis and not knowing the model you have so can't say much. I am sure the dealer would not have sold it to you if not.

Welcome to the biking world. As long as you get around on it, work up a sweat and smile now and then, you and the bike are perfect for each other.
