Hi from Mississauga

Hey all,

Justed wanted to pop in and introduce myself. Im from Mississauga,Ontario,Canada. Near Toronto for those of you that don't know. Interested in getting myself in to cycling (gas is just too much these days!). I usually like to do my own research for things but I would appreciate for someone to point me in the right direction. Im a big guy (270 pounds) and would like find or get info on bikes for big guys, where is the appropriate area in qhich I should post to find these answers? I used the search function, however the information I found was limited. Thanks again.

Check out the Clydesdale section. No matter what kind of bike you're looking to get, wheel strength is important so higher spoke wheels that are well built are what you want to look for. Go to a few different bike shops, ride every bike that interests you, and have fun!

Hi Joseph, yes, the Clydesdale/Athenas forum is a great place to go for not just help, but for motivation!
