I was just glad I had the bike with the lower handlebars that day! Lots of 'gonna die!' an 'oh ####!!', LOL

Well, I've bought two bikes off bikesdirect.com that have been very reliable. They are also pretty cheap for most stuff on the site.

I had a Schwinn very similar to that one. Try wiggling the saddle back and forth a bit, to see where it 'fits' you best. I've got a big butt too and find that moving it back a little is more comfy. ...
