I am new to this forum and bikes and belong in the clyde section. I am 47, 6 foot and 280 lbs. Been wantig a bike for a long time. It is one of my new years resolution to start exercising and lose weight. A major part of that will be bike riding. I am moving from Alaska to Arizona. In AZ i will be able to ride everyday. I don't arrive until Jan. 8th., but doing a lot of research as to what kind of bike to get that will support my weight. I have been reading on here too.
I like the Trek namebrand but will consider others. Not sure if i want to get something like the Navigator, or the FX series or 7100. I do not have a car so will be using my bike to commute to and from work and everything else. Think i need to start on something like this to lose weight first, then get a better bike in the future. Any advice will be greatly appreciated from you all. My budget will only be about $500-$600 when i get there. Thanks!
