Hi from Sparks NV

Hi all,

I have been a member here for awhile, but never posted. I am a very big dude that is looking to get in better health and drop lots of weight. My main exercise has been walking, but I used to really enjoy riding. The big problem for me is finding a bike that can hold me and not break that will not kill my pocket book.

I have a cheapo Huffy 26 in. Mens 6-Speed Prospect Comfort Bike that I have never ridden and am not even sure will hold up to my size for any length of time. Anyway I found this place through a work associate, rowedave76. I will be looking for the huge dudes section of this forum.

Welcome to Bike Forums. You should post your question in the Clydesdale/Athena forum. They can give you great advice on bikes for bigger guys.
