    Are you talking about the Colonel??? If so, it looks great and is stinkin' lite. I couldn't imaganie a clydesdale on it, but it would be a great bike for anyone under 180lbs. Inexpensive for ti too.

    why not a clydesdale? Are the frames in a large size made that flexy? If so, you could have it made custom...

    I've got a Colonel 29er - size large. I'm very happy with it. Rides great. I'm 185lbs -- no flex for me. Hard to beat the price for Ti.

    I'm not saying that the large is flexy, I'm saying large people (200+lbs) tend to flex things. Especially things that are made to be eXtra-LIghTE.

    I wouldn't try to talk you out of a Dean brother. I sell tons of them. 185lbs on an X-LITE single speed... go for it.

    Are you talking about a Colonel or a Colonel X-LITE? Our friend who started this thread was talking about an X-LITE.
