i have about 15kg of lard i can shed.... i've always been heavy, in matric i was no where near fat , 9% body fat and still weighed 102kgs!!! so even at my "best" i was over the 100kg's! just destined to be heavy i guess... but i will check out for a 2nd hand- my only issue with that is that if something does brake i have no warranty... and no "advice before i buy" most private sellers will say it will hole me and the a face plant! and no comebacks. at least with a new bike i bet the back up of the manufacture.....??
