Hey guys! Glad I found this forum, everyone here seems pretty encouraging.
I'm 6'3" and 320lbs and 28 years old. I gained roughly 100lbs in 10 years since high school. I used to ride BMX like a maniac in high school. Doesn't seem like an uncommon story around here. Looking to drop back down, I work with a guy who is a certifiable roadie. He psyched me all up and sent me to a local bike shop, who set me up with a new bike. I purchased a Scott SUB40. It's a hybrid kinda bike, which luckily for my goofy ass, comes in an appropriate size.
SUPER FUN to ride. It's way fast, and seems to be durable so far.
I'll be around for awhile and let you guys know how I make out.
