Quit smoking a few years back,and since then have packed on the weight.
I am 60 yrs+,6'3" 300lbs+,and need to drop the tonnage.I have been working out at home on a Schwinn Airdyne,just to get in better condition to even ride a bike again.I have a circa 1987 Peugeot "Marseilles" 12-spd road bike w/27x 1 1/4" 36spoke steel rims.Will these rims support me or should I look at wider wheels.I picked this bike up about 5 years ago at an estate sale for $20,and from the condition of the bike it has hardly been used.Any suggestions would be appreciated--H.H.
