Newb to road; Advice for big rider
So after searching the forums for a while and reading a ton.. I decided to post up..
I am new to the forums, I currently ride MTB a few times a month, but have the itch to start riding road. I am an athletic(Played D.1 NCAA Football) 6' 3 3/4" and currently 290. Just finished up my football career and would like to shed my playing weight.
My question is what Is a good entry/intermediate level bike that I am not going to out grow in 6 months. What Features should I be looking for to make this bike good for someone my size?
I would like to stay under or around $1k.
thanks in advance
