[Project] Help Me Pick A Bike
hi there! i recently kind of fell in love with biking when i decided to take it up for exercise. i bought a pos bike from a garage sale and hit the ohio eerie towpath which runs a block away from my house (sick! very nice to ride). well, recently my crappy bike was stolen (my own fault, left it sitting unlocked on my front porch) so now i need to choose a new bike. i'm p poor, but have decided to invest in a decent bike because i'd rather use it as primary transport as well (i hate cars).
i googled my way to your fine forum and thought you might all be interested in helping me comb through my local craigslist to choose a suitable bike, as i am not very knowledgeable in this regard myself.
so without further muddling about here is what i'm a looking for and my local craigslist bikes section:
looking for a bike for a ~350 lb 6'1ish male
for use on towpath and street transport
$100 - $300ish dollars, whatever looks like best value
style not much of a factor
and some candidates?
i will continue to post itt about the bikes that come up that i am considering. hopefully within the next couple weeks with your help i can learn what i'm even looking for and find a nice bike that will support my fat ass.
thanks in advance for having a look! cool supportive forum you've got here imo
