Havent been on a bike in 15 years.Had a Diamondback Mtn. bike.Didnt care for the ride,and gave it to my nephew.Just came into the possession of a road bike and have some questions.
The bike is a Peugeot "Marseilles" 12-spd road bike. It has 27x1 1/4 wheels with Shimano components.
My guess is the bike is around 20 years old,and was made in Canada.Its in pretty good shape with
a few dings here and there.Just needs new tires and probably brake pads. Question is I'm 6'3" and
280 lbs. am I too tall or heavy for this bike? Ican straddle the top rail with about an inch to spare.
The bike was a freebie,so no cost is involved.I just need to ride for the exercise.I live in a small town
and the traffic isn't bad.Any suggestions would be helpful.Thanks in advance
