I am just getting back into riding. I haven't rode scince I was a kid and I couldn't believe when I bought my new ride how much fun it is. I want to outfit my bike for more of a commuter setup. Comfort is of the most importance.
So the bike is a giant revel 29er! 2013 model. It does hold my weight pretty good! I want to upgrade components that may be a potential failure! I would even be willing to try a different bike all together if that is necessary!
Myself- a 400 lbs rider. I am down more than fifty pounds now and cycling is my main source of exercise. I think commuting would help me in this department a great deal. I live about 45 miles from where I work! I live about 15 miles from the local bus stop! The bus runs to be within two miles of my work location. So you can figure about 34 miles a day on a bike.
Any suggestions for upgrades to my current, completely stock Giant!
Oh, I do all of my riding on pavement now as I am too scared to hit the trails! I fear catastrophic failure of my bike! So definately want some suggestions on tires!!
Thanks for any help!!
