I posted below, and will try to look at a Trek 7100 in a few weeks , if he still has it.
But do the experts here think that will hold me up at my weight and size, super extra wide butt, what seat could I get without spending a small fortune?
Today in my local Gym, I did 4 miles in 23 , minutes, for me personal best of both distance and time.
I hear about 36 spoke tires, is there bigger ones, ?
Desperation has set in for me, I QUIT MY JOB AS A TRUCKER BECAUSE i WAS GETTING TO BIG , and thou I am losing some, it is not what i thought it would be , YET !! Biking should help, because when I walked over 2 miles I get extreme shoulder pain and numbness in my right arm, EVERYTIME, a pinched nerve I believe, but with no insurance anymore, Doc's are out, can not afford it, wish i could thou.
Am I in the right place, to get the help I need.
I live just south of Daytona Beach, about 24 miles or so , any great bike shops around, or suggestions , this one guy has the TREK 7100, at I think a great price, and if it would work want to get it now, but need to wait for my tax return, what 2-3 weeks? I am working on getting a ride to where the bike is, and see if it would work, then proceed from there I guess, God willing it will.
Open for help and suggestions, please. Feel free to pm me, but understand I ca not PM yet not enough posts , I guess, my email if this is allowed is firstname.lastname@example.org, I have an email spam thingy, but if you mention bike forum, in subject I can try to find you, i promise to respond to all emails, so if after 3 days no response try again, as it must have gotten thru to my spam detector.
Thank you all Patrick
