As the title says, I am obese (approx 350-60) after a prolonged disability (IED explosion while deployed) and want to try and do some things to lose weight and gain some more freedom from my youth.
I am not well off and, thus, cannot buy a new "big guy" bike from a LBS as they are WAY beyond my price range.
I know Walmart and other "big box" store bikes are not the best but I was wondering if a bike from there with an aftermarket set of tires (or possibly just a rear tire) would work for a big guy ? I sat on the bike and it was comfortable, the tired didn't even squish like I feared they would.. only a very little...
I am just looking into getting back into riding for as little as possible. I am a road rider (no offroad except maybe a few areas in grass when there are no sidewalks or jumps or anything)
Any help would be greatly appreciated
