About MeLooking to get a mountain bike for trail riding. Preferably used. Preferably for not more than about $500. I weigh 270 lbs and I'm concerned about preventing flats. I used to flat about once a week on my road bike until I got kevlar tires.
Experienced road rider from and in NYC. Left there 2.5 years ago and haven't ridden since. Too dangerous here. Roads have no shoulders here and cars are doing 50-60 mph on two lane highways. Plenty of woods around here though.
Have never ridden a trail or mountain bike before.
