    Help choosing a bike

    Hello mates
    I haven't cycled for about 10 years. Had an opportunity to do so yesterday and now a i want to buy a bike.

    I am 6"4 and weight 240lbs. The bike i rode yesterday didnt sit/fit me well no matter how i adjusted the seat and handles.

    For the new bike, most riding will be done on asphalt but some might be on unpaved roads at cottage county's. I've read some articles about full suspension bikes and it seems like its just what i need. My budget is $500. Can someone recommend a brand/model of the bike that will suit my need?

    Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're probably right

    By the way, dronich, there is a sub-forum here just for the larger cyclist. The Clydesdale and Athena forum. You will find a lot of help for your quest there.
