386-lb rider here - any bike suggestions?
I'm a 386-lb, 6'4" man. Right now, I'm cycling around on an old Norco Bush Pilot mountain bike that I've had for years.
I live somewhere that's pretty much covered with ice and snow for six months of the year so I was thinking of getting studded tires to ride throughout the winter this year.
Then, I started reading about the weight capacity of bikes and, well, quite frankly, now I'm a bit freaked out. It seems like my bike collapsing under my weight is a distinct possibility.
By the way, my plan is already to lose 200 lbs in the coming year and start taking part in shorter triathlons.
But I want to make sure I won't get injured with my bike falling apart because of my weight before then.
Anyone here have any suggestions?
