It looks like I've found the right forum for me. I'm 6'2" 280 and trying to lose more. I've lost about 40 pounds in the last 6 months by changing my diet and exercising more. I've been trying to jog, but if I jog one more step I think I might die. Which led me to looking at bikes again.
I'm 28 years old and, sad to say, haven't been on a bike in about 10 years. In my teens I went on a bike trip every summer, the longest being 600 miles, and I loved it. I rode my bike everywhere, but then I went to college and before you know it life happend. You know, job, bills, etc and biking just kinda fell by the wayside.
I went to a local bike store this weekend and the kid working there only seemed interested in selling me the most expensive bike in the store. That is why I came here, to get some suggestions on what brand/type of bike would be good for me with a budget of less than $500. Any advice you can give me is appreciated. Thank you all
