Sooooo here we go. Weight loss time.
I was given what I think is a 1989 Schwinn World Sport. It's in pretty darn good condition, and I had it tuned up and the wheels replaced.
I took it for a spin without doing much adjusting. Not that I would know what to adjust anyway, hence my presence on these here forums. Anyhow, aside from weighing 293lbs where I should weigh 187lbs, I'm terribly uncomfortable on the bike.
Mainly, it's my butt bones. Even with the $30 cushiony seat I bought, it hurts while I ride.
I also feel like I'm slumped over too far. I'm 6'0.5" and the handlebars are lower than the seat, which I feel that for my size and weight, should be the reverse, especially since I'm a total beginner.
If it helps, I was told the wheels are 27". I have no special tools by the way. Just your typical wrenches & allen keys.
