Ok, so here is my deal. Clyde + (6'6" ~350) looking to get back on a bike. Looking at a few options.
1. Trek Verve 4. Plan to swap out seat post first thing.
2. Trek FX 7.4.
I've read some advice suggesting not doing the Verve in favor of the FX because many people outgrow the Verve in short order. But there is a fly in the ointment. I had surgery of my wrist and can't really handle a forward leaning position for long. Of course, that may get better as the weight comes off.
Plan to ride roads and paved bike paths. Plan is to ride a lot.
My budget is about a kilobuck ($1000).
Advice solicited and appreciated.
