I am trying to get my husband into cycling. He's been as much as 500+ and now is about 380 to 450. I'm not sure. Also he's just turned 50. I'm trying to get him into cycling. I have built a bike I am sure will hold him but am having trouble getting him to give it a try. He keeps coming up with excuses as to why he can't start. He cant get his leg over the bar, he's afraid it will hurt his knees or he may destroy the bike. It's to the point I have just backed off about it. AM I the problem pushing the issue to hard or is there another reason he may be afraid of it that I don't understand?
Any ideas or inspiration I can give him would be nice.
Thanks, The Bird.
