I started riding a stationary bike in my basement to lose weight. At that time I'm not really sure how much I weighed but it was over 350 pounds, my scale only went up to 350 and it took 6 weeks of dieting before I could weigh myself. As i pedaled I thought how great it would be to be outside riding a bicycle! I went down to 225 pounds. That was to skinny for me, I'm 6'5". Since then I've gone back up to 270 now because of surgery and not working. But I know I'll lose it just as soon as I can get back on my bicycle! I just enjoy riding! It always brings a smile to my face.

700c Hybrid bike
Description:  I traded my road bike in for this Trek 7300. I didn't like the riding position of the road bike. I love this bike! Sure, it's not as fast but I'm much more comfortable. I've added Brooks B17 saddle, Cane Creek bar ends, Racks, front & rear, Peter White built Velocity rims w/Phil Wood hubs. Deore derailleurs, Speedplay Frog pedals, Planetbike fenders and quick fire shifters. The whole bike has been upgraded.
