Got my first bike in forever (pic included)
Thanks to info I got from reading here and my LBS I bought my first bike in probably 18years. Of course I weigh alot more than I did 18 years ago.
For those that did not read my first post, I am 31, Male, 6'3", 370lbs. From my old body building days, I need to lose a good 120lbs. That all being said...
I bought a Raleigh Talus Sport 29... Was a little more than I wanted to spend, but I really like the bike. For size purposes, I ended up with the XL frame. The large was a little too small to get comfortable.
My LBS added a bigger seat, metal pedals, and softer grips... Mostly just swapped out items. If I decide I want the better stuff, the. i will buy it.
I took it on 2 rides already. 1 for 3.75mi, and 1 for 3.95mi. I have been just averging 7.7mph. Just taking it easy for me.
Here is what it looks like, let me know what you think...
