    Default HELP, Obese rider needs a new bicycle

    Hi everyone, I weigh around 120 kilos. 2 wheels have always fascinated me, cycling during school and motorcycling now.
    I rode a Hercules Atom 6 gear during my school days (2012-13)
    That was the last bicycle I owned.
    Recently having put on so much weight, I thought of using cycling as a means to reduce it.
    I'm not inclined on purchasing really costly bicycles as I don't know for how many more days/months/years, this enthusiasm will continue.
    I was looking to buy a simple, single speed bicycle that can hold my weight and falls within a budget of 6k.
    Any recommendations will be appreciated.
    Incase no bicycle within this budget can hold me, what will be the weight that I have to be to get a bicycle that can handle the weight and be within my budget.
    Thank you

    Most of the hybrids out there are tested upto 100kg. for 6k the options are limited but there are some single speeds.

    First job for you will be to decrease your weight by regular exercise and diet. Then start looking in stores once this corona scare is over.

    Decathlon have a single speed priced at 6k. other shops also will have some options. try those and pick one which you feel comfortable to ride.

    Happy pedaling.
