Finding and purchasing exercise equipment for bigger body fitness can be a daunting task. Finding sturdy big and tall bikes can be particularly hard if you don’t know where to shop or what features to look for. The adult bikes at most bike retailers are only designed for small to medium adults – typically up to about 200 or 250 pounds. Whether they are big retailers or smaller bike stores, most bike retailers tend to inventory bikes with frames, wheels and brakes which are not designed for larger weight or taller passengers.
Plus size living is getting easier. Restaurants have more seating options for bigger bodies. Outdoor seating accommodates larger bodies. Car seat belt extenders are easier to find. These changes and many new products are the result of many men and women vocalizing their needs and making it easier for plus size living.

You might want to consider getting them back into your wardrobe.
