    Hello from Houston

    Hi! Im Steve, Im from Kingwood (NE.Houston)

    I cycled every day when I was a kid, from about 7 years old, up until around 20. I was very active, playing sports at high levels and just generally a fit guy. Now Im 28 and well into Clyde territory (Ive been reading the forum). Im looking to get back on my bike and get back down to sub 200lbs.

    First up....to find a bike. Im 6ft3, 275lbs. Ive done some lurking on the site to try and get an idea of what I want. I would like to stay below $500 for my first bike, which I guess means a used bike? (Im looking for a road bike not MTB)

    As an incentive to keep working hard, Ive decided to put the purchase of my new car on hold until I get to 200lb

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Welcome to Bike Forums.
    I'd recommend a Jamis Coda Sport. The price is $560. The 2013 models will be coming in soon and you may get a deal on a new 2012 model.
    Good luck with the weight loss.
    Keep us posted on what you get. Don't forget the pics.

    2013 Cannondale CAAD 10 2 "Racing Edition"--The bike shop owner said it's toast after the car-bike accident. R.I.P.
    * * 2014 or 2015 CAAD 10 3 coming soon. Decision time. * *
