    agree. Road bikes are great, but in her price range, they're non-existent new, and she doesn't sound knowledgeable enough to not get screwed buying a used bike right now...

    I would stay away from that bike if you think you'll get serious about riding. It's fine for short bike-path rides, but anything longer than 10 miles it's going to get really uncomfortable.

    You're not that big :) Lots of us 300 lb plus guys are on drop bar roadies. This time of year you should be able to get a 5 year old or so road bike in your budget.

    I've lost about 20... With the knee injuries I've been up and down for a couple of years. Now that I'm feeling better, I should be able to keep up the downward trend.

    My surgery was just arthroscopic clean out. Followed Doc's orders about what to do when. Knees feel good today. Back, feet, hips, glutes, not so much... And clearly cotton boxer-briefs were an unwise...

    Zinn has a non-custom series as well, which while being pricier than basic off-the-shelf bikes are less than a full on custom Zinn. Check out his website.

    At your size, take a look at the KHS Flite747. You may have to go custom too. They're going to have a tough time getting any off the shelf bike adjusted to your length. I'm 5" shorter than you and...

    I think a light touring bike would be perfect for you. Probably not an all out touring model, but the Jamis Aurora or similar seems like it would work well for what you describe.

    You need a different seat. One that is perfect on a hybrid will (or might) be completely wrong on a roadie, especially if you're set up aggressively at all.
