Now that the weather in Chicago has nice, I've been thinking about riding into work each day, but first I need a bike. I'm 6'4 and around 265lbs, so I'm looking for a bike that not only is comfortable for my substantial size, but a bike that handle the weight. My commute isn't very long, about 5 miles round trip, but I want to have the option to use it for longer rides. I'd also like to keep my price low, as I'm getting married and just got a new house, so a lot of expenses. My price range is probably around $300, but could go higher. I'd also be interested in getting a used bike. Any suggestions, things I should look for?
Thanks for the help,
