I posted a while ago (can't find it now) asking about a good bike for a larger person. I had been riding a cheap Target brand old lady bike. Today I got a Giant Suede and am in LOVE -- this thing works the hamstrings, gluts and quads AND has flat foot technology...plus upright handlebars -- so comfy. I highly recommend it to anyone!
Thanks for all your input. It helped a lot in making this choice.
