I'm looking for a new bike and really want some suggestions. I hope this is the place to post questions like this. I've been trolling the site for a while now, and finally decided to sign up today.
I mainly ride on roads, asphalt paths, or packed gravel trails. I have lower back problems, so I'm mainly looking for a comfort/hybrid that will have me sitting mostly upright. I'm also not exactly on the small side, I'm 6'1" at just over 250lbs. (part of the reason I'm trying to go biking more). I'd be willing to spend upwards of $500 (preferably less though )
I've been riding my current bike, a dept store Mt bike, but with the way I have to lean forward on it, I can only ride 1 maybe 2 days a week before my back starts screaming at me to stop... So, its time to get a "real" replacement. Hopefully one that will stand up to daily riding for many years to come, and allow me to ride daily without the pain I experience now.
Any suggestions welcome!
