I would appreciate your input on a bike. I know we are talking lower end LBS bike, but before I go looking I would appreciate some input.
Her are the particulars:
I am 52
I weigh 225
I am 6' 4"
I have long legs (37")
Long arms (not sure of length but off the rack doesn't work)
Torso is average
I live in St. Louis and have several LBS to choose from. I am sure they have just the bike for me at each one but would like to be a little more guarded when they measure me.
I live 3 miles from a trailhead of the KATY trail which is crushed limestone. I also have a few miles of flat blacktop to ride on. Due to this I don't think a road bike would work, it would have to be a MTB or hybrid.
I guess my question would be, are there manufacturers that build longer bikes as a rule or if looking for a used bike is there a preference.
Thanks for the help, I know there are a lot of varibles.
