I'm 6'4", 440 lb, very wide rack (meaning I'm not just a fat guy, I'm a big & fat guy). I grew up on a bike, and I'm looking to get back on one. I started a diet and have dropped 15 or so lbs in the first 11 days, which I know will slow down. I also know that biking will be great exercise for me. I need some suggestions on a good bike for me. I'm thinking that a hybrid would be best for me. I live in a smaller town and am not close to mountain trails, but there are plenty of country roads to get on. I have a couple of fellow coaches who are willing to be riding partners with me, and I'm ready to get started. I know I need some serious wheels, with 36 spoke or more wheels (read something about a guy with wheels that had wheelchair spokes). Please give some real suggestions.
