Hello

Hello Everybody, newbie here from Las Vegas. I'm a Big Clyde 6ft 390. I put on a lot of weight after a car accident where my back and neck were broken. I used to ride when I was younger now I'm hoping my back can handle the riding. I'm looking at either a 2014 Giant Talon 29er 2 or a 2014 giant revel 29er. looking forward to being able to ride and not kill anyone with the name calling that I'm sure will come. J/K. kinda.
James

Welcome to BF and +1 on checking the Clydesdale forum for advice on picking the right bike model. A good local bike shop should also be able to give you some good guidance with that.
