revised How to find a mountain bike that can handle a heavier (250-260lbs) rider?
replace "overweight" with "heavy", since that's what matters here.

comment How to avoid turning the spokes while tuning the wheel
In addition to a drop of oil on each nipple, I also tap each a few times with a screwdriver, and wait a while for the oil to soak in. Still, you will always get twisting, so you need to learn the anti-twist technique.

comment How to avoid turning the spokes while tuning the wheel
If you've never built a wheel, and try to reassemble one, do not expect it to work well. There is a lot more to wheel building than getting the right parts in the right place.

Why do you think that a new chain every year is a good thing?

comment Do I need a new chain after 1300 miles (2100 km)?
Remember: a worn chain will make new cogs wear faster; worn cogs will make a new chain wear faster. Replace them before they get bad. If both are bad, replace both at once.

comment What is the 3 foot law and which states have it?
Let's get a 3-mile-law: no cars within 3 miles of a bike (except emergency vehicles). Who's with me?

comment What should a big guy look for when buying a road bike?
Remember that most bike stuff is designed to minimize weight, with barely enough strength. For us, weight of bike is not important, but strength matters much more. Especially in frame and wheels.

In bicycle circles, big folks like us are called "Clydesdales".

comment I wish to get fit, therefore should I have a heavy bike?
@meagar: I don't think I explained myself well, but my real thoughts on the the matter are both off-topic and too complex for this setting. Too bad for me.

comment What is the hand gesture for “I'm sorry”?
The picture doesn't make it clear, but your fist is supposed to be against your chest, not out in the air. You're not shaking your fist at someone. Also, in ASL you would bow your head and make a forlorn facial expression. All together, it's pretty obviously not a sign of aggression. A (non-ASL) alternative would be to put your fist on your chest and bow your head.
