DB Topanga

I am new to this forum and relatively new to cycling. Years ago I got a DB Topanga and don't know much about it. Is this a decent bike? I'm trying to load pics of the serial # and bike itself but it won't let me. I'm 6'2" and 340#. I know I'm big for a bike but hey, gotta shred it some how! I think a hybrid would be better for me.

What are you trying to use the bike for? General fitness, trails, commuting, mountain biking?

If you are just doing some light riding that will serve your purpose.

Also, form one Big Guy to another, check out Clydesdales/Athenas (200+ lb / 91+ kg) for info for the Heavy Weights...
