Hello. New forum member and yet-to-be bike rider here.
After reading a number of posts in this forum, I realize I'm a mega-Clyde and probably always will be. I'm 6'6" and currently 320. Haven't ridden in about 20 years, but would like to as a fun way to continue losing weight. I have been reading and looking at bikes, but am concerned that I might be beyond "fitable" on an off-the-shelf bike. I plan to wait until I get under 300 to get a bike and hope to get back to 250 or less. Will I ever be able to buy an off-the-shelf bike or will I have to go custom?
I Really like the 2013 Fuji Absolute 2.3. Looks like it has a lot of features that larger riders look for - 23" bike with 625 cm ett, 48/38/28 crankset w/14-34 cassette, 36 spoke wheels, 700 x 32c tires, 175 mm crank, etc. What do you think?
