[I][B][I][I] Hello all, I have read many of the post and they are truly inspiring. I'm new as a member and I must say all the stories and encouraging post have made me decide to get back on a bike. My main source of inspiration is wanting to ride with my sons (8 & 3).
I have not ridden a bike for 25 years, so I have no idea what bike to start with. I would be considered a clyde + (if there is such a thing) as I'm 6 foot 330 pounds.
I have visited a couple local bike shops and everyone I spoke with was very supportive, but there are many styles and options for bikes. I was hoping to get some feedback from people that are not trying to sell me a bike as to what are good bikes and components for a person my size. My preference would be a comfort bike and one that won't break the bank for an introductory level.
I first posted the above in the "new embarrassed rider" and then it was recommended I start a new thread, as my quest may have been overlooked in such a large thread.
Since that post I have visited a couple more bike shops and I think I may have narrowed my search to a "Giant Sedona" or "Specialized Crossroads" introductory level comfort bike.
If there is a any advise you can give it would be appreciated.
Thanks for reading
