now, I'm sure this question has been asked a million times or so, but I'd like to ask myself to get a more descriptive and precise response from you all.
Anyways, I used to bike all the time as a kid and in my early teens; easily over 50K a day, and broke my bike when I was about 13. Stopped biking around then because I couldn't afford to fix my bike, and my family wasn't willing to help. Anyways, now I'm 17, and have a food amount of money to put into the sport again. I'm now 285 and 6'3. I'm a big guy, but I know there are much larger people who bike, so I know there must be a way to do it! Thing is, I'm not sure if those people are riding mountain bikes, or if they're riding road bikes. I'd prefer a road bike, but if it's not feasible, then a mountain bike will suffice.
I'm really serious about getting back into this, as I've noticed it's the only thing I did as a kid which I really enjoyed. I would like to eventually start racing, but that comes later once I whip myself into shape! So, I'm really wondering what is the best set-up for me at my current weight?
Any help is highly appreciated; thanks folks!
