New bike for someone just starting out
Hi all. Just want to know, is this hybrid ok for a 325lb clydes?
Trying to get a friend to start riding, the man just got a new baby boy and is finally motivated to lose weight (the constant nagging from his wife never worked, imagine that
)...His main beef with riding are:
1. knee pains...He never got properly fitted in the past
2. saddle issues...Same as #1 really
3. uncomfortable riding position...He tried full on roadbikes before, I'm hoping a hybrid would be more comfortable? Never rode a hybrid before so I wouldn't know
4. asthma...I don't know how to help him with this one
Otherwise he'd love to ride. Trying to keep costs within $500. If there are better alternatives/bikes to this plz let me know, and any other suggestion is welcome, thanks in advance!!
