I'm a Super Size Clyde. Maybe super size plus. 6'3, a little north of 550#, 34 years old. Trying to make it so I live to see 40.
No bike yet. Looking for suggestions for what to get so I can get moving.
Wife and I are planning a trip to Portland (Oregon) for next summer. We are planning on taking our bikes and using them, and mass transit, to get around. I have no doubt I can make that hope a reality, but I need to start with getting a bike.
Money is not a huge limiting factor. I've got $500 available now, with another $1000 coming in soon. If necessary I can draw some money from my financial aid in the fall (I'm going into the last year of a Masters program). My wife found a bike on Zize and said that there is a cycle there for $2300. I'd like to spend less than that, though I'm willing to spend that amount if it yields a better vehicle.
Thank you in advance!
