Heya all, I have recently acquired my first bike since I was a child and started poking around for some info on bike accessories etc and stumbled upon this forum and thought I would join up. I have recently lost a ton of weight (not literally obviously but its more than 200 pounds, yes two hundred pounds that's not a typo lol) and I did it by walking/running and riding a stationary bike so in a basic progression am moving onto a normal bike, I bought a K2 Zed 3.2 and just took it out for her maiden voyage this morning in fact and man did it kick my behind! literally! I think a new seat will be in order sooner than later
I am a father of 2 and a husband to a lovely lady and I think that biking can help me progress further into my weight loss regimen while adding range and a change of scenery as well as a bit of cross training to add to my walking/running program.
I am looking forward to gaining lots of knowledge that will help my biking and that's me in a nutshell.
Check out the Clydesdale forum whether you are still over 200 pounds or not, you will find some kindred spirits there.
Also, on the saddle, it sometimes takes a while to get used to a saddle, but each person also has personal preferences for saddles, so it could well be that the saddle you have isn't suited to your posterior. I personally like Brooks saddles.
