Well, I'll be totally honest. I haven't rode a bike in a loooooong time. I found this forum, and I just kept reading and reading. Great info here.

I was wondering if I could maybe get some advice on shopping for a bike. I recently moved to Ann Arbor, MI. And thought a bike would be a great way to get around. There is so much information out there, it can be a little intimidating.

I'm a large fellow, 275lbs. But figured I could get a nice comfortable road bike just to get around town. Any advice would be great. Really don't have a budget. But would like to keep the cost under $500.

Thanks in advance,
AL
