At a hearty 355 lbs I ride a Worksman bike with 7 speed gears as well as a Worksman PAV 3 speed trike. Both are heavy duty bikes designed, and built, to take the day to day punishment of industrial factory use.
I ride them 'cause I rode them for 40 years in a factory where I retired from. When I retired I wanted to keep riding a Worksman so I bought my own and dressed them out to suit me.
If you are thinking about buying Worksman know that the seat on the bicycle will need to be replaced soon after purchase since they are a price plastic based cheap seat. Buy your choice of seat that has a metal seat pan and you'll be good to go.
My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.
