I posted in the +50 forum that I am currently riding a mountain bike to lose weight (325) and plan to reward myself with a bike at 275. (Years ago I used to race and do triathlons.....oh well)
I am intrigued by the recumbent but have concerns as well. First, I live in WV....mountains. I find that I am spinning in my lowest gear on most climbs (heart rate 160+, when I had my EKG I got my heart 190+ and the doc was really suprised...) and wonder if a recumbent would be even more difficult to climb in.
How do they hold up with heavier people?
