Hey all, I have a "spend my money" question for everyone. My wife and I are looking to start trail riding and neither of us have bikes. I think we'd like to spend between about $1500 and $2000 to get us both up and going (helmets, shoes, and peddles included ... maybe). Anyway, there are two worthwhile facts to know:
1. I am a 6'3" 230 lb guy who is concerned about my weight on a bike. I am in the process of losing weight, but don't expect to get under 205-210.
2. We have a GT iDrive team frame with pretty much all of the components to go along with it except a fork (it is completely disassembled, a few years old, but in pretty good condition). I am not sure if it would work out for a guy of my weight, but my wife would be happy to use it if we throw a fork on it and get it assembled by someone with a clue (not us).
So anyway, I guess my two questions are:
How would you go about getting the iDrive up and going and how much would you expect to spend doing that?
Should I only be considering clydesdale type bikes for myself, and if so, which should I be looking at if I really want a bike I will be happy with for my first couple years?
Thanks a ton,
