I am looking to buy my very first bike (been using a loaner) in about two weeks. I am "window shopping" at http://www.bigshark.com which is my LBS. I see they have lots of hybrids that are "Women's" but I was wondering - is that what's best for someone who is really large? I might be female (last I checked) but I'm well over the weight limit for Clydes - let alone Athenas (I'm about 270). Is a women-specific bike just going to feel too small?
I know I'll just have to try bikes in the end, but really, in the meantime - what have your experiences been?
Thank you! I'm SO excited to get my own bike!
