Hello boys and girls just picked up my first eBike 4 days ago. I have a few questions but imma hop over to check out the search function in this place and see what info I can find. I am a 6’1”, 43yo, over the hill, over weight male that started in the gym little over 3 years ago and have went from 280lbs 3 years ago to 234 this morning. I have found myself getting bored with the gym and wanted to look into getting a nice stationary bike for home when I ran across e-bikes. Upon closer research I found that a good high quality stationary bike is almost the same price as an e-bike. Outside sounded more fun so I decided to pull the trigger and ordered an Aventon Aventure 2. So far I really like it. I have only put about 25 miles on it the last 4 days and my legs are jello. It’s a lot harder than I thought it would be (which is good). As I’m mentioned I’m over 6’ but I only have a 30” inseam. So my torso is very long which makes getting a bike to fit me interesting. I have bad knees and biking has been awesome for me so far but this is going to build some muscles in these old legs. Anyway if you made it this far thanks for the add.I’m off to look up some info and I’m sure I’ll have a question or two at some point. Cheers guys.
