I am thinking about going to a recumbent. The problem is there are no dealers around where I live. I live in the country with bad roads and nothing smooth to ride on. I am not sure if a recumbent will hold up to these roads. I currently have a mountain bike that I had fitted for me. I am 6-5 and 270 so is that a factor. I plan to loose some of the weight but will still be 6-5. I can buy online but then when it gets here what do I have. I am about 60 miles from Dallas but have not found a recumbent dealer there. Any help in what direction would help.
