Newbie here, looking for a bike. I live in The Woodlands, TX and there are a lot of hike and bike trails near where I live. It's all flat, east Texas piney woods terrain. No rocks, no hills, just trails through the woods. Biggest thing I'm likely to see is a curb.
Problem is, I'm 300lbs. I rode my brother's Cannondale in college when I was 270 and it served me fine, I never broke anything or even really got the wheels out of true. It didn't shift real well though.
Anyway, budget is 500-1000 for a first bike. I make a good salary, so cost isn't an issue. Getting my fat butt out and losing some weight is. Don't want full suspension, heck not sure I need a front suspension, The old Cannondale I used to ride didn't have any suspension at all and I thought it was fine. There's a bike store right by my job that carries Specialized and Bianchi and some other brands, no Trek or Cannondale though. Can post a link to the store's website if you want to see all the brands they carry. Just looking for something good that will hold up more or less under me. I'm 6' 1" tall.
Thanks for any suggestions.
