Hi everyone. Bean27 here. Trying to get into riding for exercise. I'm about 40 lbs overweight and hope to help my overall health with some recreational riding. Nothing serious - just riding for fun and exercise. I had a Schwinn Varsity 3 speed from the early 80's that I started riding again. But, it didn't fit me too well, so I got rid of it. It made my neck hurt after about 15 minutes of riding in the hunched over position. After two cervical fusions, I need a bike with an upright riding position. So, I'm looking at hybrid and comfort models. Simpler is better for me.
Regards from Texas,
