Just over a year ago I started a self transformation project. In just over a year I have lost 101 one pounds. I have another 115 to go to attain the goal weight of 215, but I'm pleased with what I have done so far.
I quit smoking 3 days ago. I'm determined to make that stick time. Right now I'm in the midst of a nicotine craving so severe that it is driving me a little bit crazy, but I WILL NOT GIVE IN TO IT.
Sorry, had to get that out of my system. On to the reason for this post: I've gotten bloody sick of riding my exercise bike, and am looking at buying a bike that I can, and will, ride outside. My concern is that despite the weight loss I have achieved so far, I still weigh 335 pounds. Doing a bit of research today I was most intrigued by these bikes, they all fit into the price limitations I'm working with:
I live in Memphis, which is a mostly flat city. I don't have any real interest in off road riding at this time. What I am looking for is a steady, dependable machine for exercise, recreational rides. Eventually, I will want to do some light touring, etc, but I know that is in the future. I would truly appreciate any thoughts about the models mentioned, or any other recommendations.
