    Very nice ride and congrats on the 100 pounds. I agree...just go for what's popular. Doesn't matter wheel size as long as you feel like it's the right bike for you. You're the one that has to ride it. I need to go back a read all the pages so I can see your progression from the beginning but from what little I've read, sounds like you are doing a damn fine job and keep it up. I've recently lost nearly 50 pounds since Christmas and riding has a huge part in that.

    Love it. Looks dope. And while I know many people think some of us are nuts for spending what we spend on bikes I'm sure you will agree that if you knew for certain when you started that you would get the results, you would have gladly spent 5 times as much

    Ya know they should actually. No offense to the op but any frame that can take the stress of his original weight is a very well built bike.

    How are things going in the battle for getting everything under control? I certainly hope all is well. Just don't lose too much too fast. That can lead to complications. Your body should help regulate the loss though. Keeping active and riding is #1.

    Hey Michael, hope all is well with you. Getting ready to get back into the sport again and have been wandering through the site here and came across your story here.

    Big time gap and hoping you are still hard at it enjoying that new bike.

    Truly inspirational!

    Hi Micheal, as others have said Keep kickin butt! I have decided to get a road bike for when the trails are washed out.Could be a lot more fun for you than the trainer. I amj in the process of picking one out and I am really starting to like road bikes. Something to think about!

    Tremendous job!

    I know first hand how difficult it is to do it and keep it off; still fighting the good fight myself. Congrats!


    I started commuting to work on my bike 8 years ago. At 5-11 I've gone from 350 to a pound or two over 215. I've had a resting heart rate in the 50s my last 3 physicals! Got serious about mountain biking a couple years ago.

    Struggling to lose the last 30, but more importantly I'm still in the struggle.

    I ran CC and Track through High School, and got a half scholarship in college to compete. I had great BMI and was pretty strong. Now.... I am not like that. My Haro is in the shed collecting dust, so I thought I should pull it out and hit the roads. I can stand to lose 50lbs. I need to fix the Bottom Bracket though, I am getting some wobble when riding.
