New from Palm Coast, FL

Hello all, I haven't been on a bike (Besides an exercise bike) in probably 20 years.
used to be quite fit , Ex Wrestler, Football player, Shot-putter, tennis player, etc...
Now I'm what you all call a Clydesdale at 5' 10" /260lb. I haven't been below 220lbs in 20 years lol. I seem to be having a hard time finding a bike in my price range that I feel comfortable on and will support my weight. It seems as though I flatten tires as soon as I sit on the bike (in wal-mart).

From the posts I've read so far seems to be a great group of ppl here

Welcome to Bike Forums. You might want to post your bike question in the Clydesdale/Athena forum. I'm sure the guys there can help you find a bike that will meet your needs.
