Hello, My name is Tim and I am a fat guy.
I was into bicycling in the mid to late 80's, rode some centuries, had a couple nice bikes etc. etc.
Well here I am now at 44 overwieght and ready for a change. I have lost wieght before and gained it back, so I know I can lose it, but I want to add exercise to my wieght loss, I have tried walking, but it is so darn boring, I want to get back in to cycling.
I have been away for a long time and need a little advice on a bike....I am about to drop the hammer on this:
My intention is to start out riding around the neighborhood for a while and as soon as I can start using the bike for commuting, running to the store, anywhere I can go on a bike basically.
My questions are these 1. Will this bike work for a 360 pounder? 2. I am 5 foot 8" tall I am leaning toward the 19" frame, would this be the right size for me?
Thanks for any advice, and I must say that seeing what others here have accomplished is inspiring, I plan on spending plenty of time on these forums to gain knowledge and advice from you all.
