I am 6'3" guy weighing 280 lbs.  I would like to bike to loose weight.  But the only bikes I seem to notice appear to be too small from me.  I would also like to put our two youngest in something to pull beihind a bike.

Is there some type size bike for me?

What would you suggest for my twins to ride in as I ride?

I'm 6'5" and 245 lbs. I'm trying to get into bicycling, but almost every thing is too small for me. Also, I have size 13W feet which means traditional cycling shoes are out.

been doing a lot of bicycling.
you don't really need any special equipment to jump on a bike, except for maybe a helmet.

I'm 6'3" and 325 pounds, But I have a very large frame and used to power lift.

I look at a bike and think how in the world will this bike ever hold me up.

Where would I find a bike to hold me up?

Then I hate the bike seats. Who in the world made the bike seats some guy with tiny nutts?

I mostly walk, do crunches and leg lifts to loose weight, but I have been noticing racket ball helps me loose allot of weight.

I lift medium in the gym 4 nights a week with allot of reps to get toned.

I also have a 13W feet to. So cycling shoes are out for me to.
