Fat unemployed guy on a beat up bike
Well my name is Bo and I am fat and need to lose weight. I don't mean 20 pounds overweight but way into the badly obese kind of fat.
I need to do something about it and my kid has been riding his old 18 speed Huffy so I decided I'm going to get a bike and play as well.
I found a 2006 or so Specialized Hard Rock on Craigslist for 50 dollars that was complete but needed work. I like doing mechanical work. Replaced both of the beatup shifters with Shimano EF50s that I got from a LBS for 30 dollars (used). Replaced the axle, 5 dollars.
I have a bunch of questions I will ask in the proper forums but hopefully I can ride this bike and maybe lose some weight.
And hello to everyone.
