I am also new to the forums and tip the scales at a little over 375 pounds. I have been researching as much as I can and have been told that the wheel set is the most important component to consider with someone of my weight - everyone has said to go for 36 spoke wheels or higher. I have spoken to several bike stores in my local area and they have all given different advice. So far, these are some the bikes that have been recommended for me:
Would any of these be suitable - I am confused as they are all so different?? I do prefer the hybrid/comfort style more the the MTB style though - however if these are strong enough I am happy to go with a MTB. If these do look like a good option, could someone recommend a bike that would suit my situation.
