    Please help me decide which bike I should get im 6' 300lbs

    Hello everyone im new to the forum and after a few weeks of browsing I decided to join to ask what I gotta ask. So im 6' 300lbs and im looking for a bike to take to work everyday about 3 miles 1 way. After going cheap and learning the hard way ive decided to be a bit smarter and buy a better bike. I have lookes and narrowed it down to these bikes so please take a look and help me decide.

    I can get the 1st two used for $450 but both have warranty

    I can get this one for 230 without warranty used.

    I'm 6 foot and 306lbs and ride a Giant Escape. The only issue I've had so far is the pedals came apart on me. I replaced them with some alloys. My bike is fully equipped. It has fenders, a Wald 535 grocery basket, headlight and 3 taillights, bell, and I put a bar end mirror on yesterday. I'm living car free which is why I tricked mine out with a lot of accessories. All told it was $623. About $150 of that was accessories.

    Welcome To Bike Forums, Mr. Grey!

    Go with the Muirwoods!

    It's chromoly steel, has a lower profile and wider tires than all the others. Everything you need for greater support. The lower profile renders a lower center of gravity. Mishaps will be easier to avoid, due to a greater sense of balance...

    Any of those will be great bikes for you. Buy the one you find the prettiest or the one the "speaks" to you. it will be that one that just looking at it makes you want to go for a ride and the one that secretly talks you into riding when you dont want to.

    I like the looks of the Raleigh. As a kid I would only ever ride Raleighs so perhaps thats why
