I've been checking various posts and forums but can't seem to get this figured out. I am a 60 year old woman, I weigh 250lbs and I'm 5'4". I live in a fairly hilly area of the West Coast of British Columbia. I know that I will need to have a robust motor to carry me up the hills that I can't pedal my way up. I have no idea at all what to look for when reading and comparing the stats about various bikes. I am not at all mechanically inclined in that way. How do I know that a bike is strong enough for my voluptuous body?
