Challenge: Bike for a fat guy
I am looking for thoughts/acutal items/ advice. I am trying to save some money on my daily commute of 80 miles or so. Given the high gas prices in Utah I am spending $400 a month in gas. I am toying with the idea of taking public transport which leaves me about 3 miles of walking/biking to make it time feasible. As a larger guy in the past I have had a hard time with bikes especially the pedals. I am about 320lbs and 5"10 don't know if that matters much but in case it does.
I would love to see something for 300 bucks or less (this would allow me to break even on the month after the cost of the transit pass) but if that's not realistic let me know and post your advice anyway.
Thanks in advance for your help
