Tom; I am 6'0 #252 and ride a road bike...a lot of us biggins do. I put thousands of miles on a standard bike each year with no problems.
If you want to lose weight the cycling will really help. I your just big, don't worry about running over things.
If you wanna ride road, buy road. Cross is much heavier and slower with the bigger tires, etc.
Anyway welcome, this is a neat forum with great people.
I can't ride and Frown!
