First off let me say Hello to everyone. I havent ridden in 15-20 years but have decided to get back on the bike. I will be riding a combination of light offroad and paved trail. I come in at 6'0" / 250lbs and thanks to growing up on a farm and working out for 20 years I have a fairly broad chest/back. I borrowed a friends giant sedona (20" frame 26" wheels) and it was not comfortable at all. It felt as though the handlebars were right in my lap and that they needed to be a couple of inches wider. That lead me to look at a cruiser but I am looking for something a little more "aggressive" than that. So I am looking for recommendations for a frame that is sturdy enough to support my size as well as a handlebar setup that would work better for my chest. Is there such a bike or will I be better off with a custom setup?
I'm going to stop by my lbs (The Great Escape in Greenville SC) but would like to have some idea what I am looking for before going in there.
Thanks in advance for any info you guys can share.
