Hi all, im a big guy 6'8" 365lbs but i decided to take my old bike to the LBS to get it tuned up, a new chain, a new shifter cable and a new rear wheel (some how the original wheel got bent in storage).
well i have been using it to commute from my home to my gym and back 5 days a week a 12.5mile round trip to save money on gas and burn some extra calories. Ive been doing it for 2 weeks so far im down to 340lbs
well heres my bike i know she needs some work but she is strong!
Giant Boulder SE
the forks have quite a bit of rust on them from being outside im going to see if i can sand it off
so far i have ordered a pair of Continental Sport contact tires in 26x1.6" and a pair of short fox biking gloves im just waiting for them to come in the mail.
i plan on getting a Brooks saddle but im not too sure if id need to do anything else to the bike after that, i dont need storage on the bike because i ride with a Coleman 2L hydration back pack and it has more then enough space for everything i carry.
anyway thanks for all the info ive learned while ive been lurking on this site i hope to ride more and more as i enjoy it more everyday
