    New Bike

    So I sold my old bike to my bro as he has lost 100 lbs and told him he needed to get to exercising to get his body well rounded. I am a big guy 6' 300lbs and have been riding for a year or so as an extra cardio workout to supplement the weight lifting. Now I work at a private school as a teacher and a coach and we have a much smaller salary than that of the public schools. So I needed to replace the bike I sold. The other bike I had was a big box bike from wally world a next hyper v. So I was looking at getting another store bike, but a little higher with better components and one that has the ability to upgrade gradually. So I bought the Schwinn Protocol from Academy. Just wondering if you guys have any input on it. I know it is not a trek or anything even in that range but a decent bike so far. Like I said buying a cheaper bike than upgrading slowly is best as money is limited.

    Schwinn protocol 1.0 is the best. I have one and love it. If you assemble it yourself be careful around the pedals they are sensitive as I learned the hard way.
