So I'm ~210 lbs(haven't weighed myself in awhile), 5' 9", and 19 years old at University.
I do some weightlifting, cross-training, and running.
I try to workout 3-4 times a week.
My bike currently is a 1994 Kona Fire Mountain converted to be a commuter and to get the most speed possible out of it.
I ride my bike a lot, usually every day aside from getting to class. In all probably 20-30 miles a day. I love the feeling of speed given I've always been a bit slow and cumbersome cause of my size.
I'm currently helping out with getting my university's club road cycling team back.
I'm right now fighting with myself on whether I should, come next semester or next year, move to a real road bike.
I really want to know, what is your opinion? Do you think it would be a worthwhile investment?
Given I'm on a budget I would very likely look into bikesdirect and one of their bikes. That or possibly a secondhand bike.
