I've recently had a health scare and have decided I want to get a bicycle, any recommendations for bike models? I've read around here for other people in my weight class and it seems like there are options for us, and the rear wheel is the main concern. As of right now I'm not medically cleared for any physical activity besides walking (for 6 weeks) and my drivers license has been suspended (6 months) . Any recommendations are welcome as well as things I should ask at LBS (spoke count, double walled wheel, etc).
If it makes any difference on selection I'm located in Canada (southern Ontario) and don't really have a budget but I'm not looking to spend thousands.
Thanks for any input!
