Fat elderly gentleman looking for a bike :-)(4 posts)

Fat elderly gentleman looking for a bike :-)Dave Hickey

I'm posting this for a friend of mine:-)

Here are my stats:

Older male- age 500+
Weight- 300lbs
Occupation- Delivery business. I only work 1 day a year so the Mrs's suggests I take up a hobby.

Starting Dec26, I have 364 days to get in shape.

I've traveled the world and seen the best bikes Italy, USA, France, and Asia have to offer. Considering my weight, Should I go with steel? How about my wheels. 36 hole 3x, Record/Dura Ace hubs? Red is my favorite color so I'm also looking for a full red team kit. Does anyone sell a team kit with white fur trim?

Merry Christmas to everyone at RBR. Have a safe holiday and I hope Santa(oops, I mean my friend), brings you everything on your wish list.

Hee-hee-hee...
I'd go with some 36-hole Phil hubs with red MA-3's for durability's sake.

Merry Christmas, bro!
