I got a new bike for Christmas to do some hobby bicycling to get myself in shape. However, I'm having trouble actually working the bike.
I'm very overweight, which is most of the problem. When the pedal comes all the way up in the revolution, it comes up so far that I have to shift my hips in order to accommodate my leg coming up so high, which throws me very off-balance and I've fallen a few times. I've tried changing the seat hight, and it makes no difference to the problem. Any hints on something I should look into? Do I need to lose weight some other way before getting on a bike? Do I need a different bike? Any help is appreciated
