    A simple Kona Kahuna. With the changes I made I could have had much more bike.... Manitou Tower Pro, Easton Haven wheels, Hope brakes/rotors, SRAM XO gripshift, WTB pro saddle.... It all adds up!

    But it's a good enough bike for me at this point.

    6'6" 200 lbs. I ride a 23" Trek Superfly Carbon and a 22" Santa Cruz Carbon Highball. Both fit great, but Superfly is more comfortable.

    I am 6'6" and when I got my Surly Karate Monkey (used off ebay) 9 years ago 29ers were not supported by the major bike manufacturers. I was about 250 lbs then. I am now sub 195 and still ride the same bike. The only thing I have replaced is the drive train and given 9 years of riding that's not bad. The bike has treated me very well!

    I am just now thinking of getting a new bike but it isn't because my current one isn't capable. It is because i am lusting after something new :P

    5'9" 249lbs. I'm riding a Salsa Fargo or a Surly Pugsley depending on the conditions.
    Having owned several mtb hardtails and never liked a single one of them. Prefer riding without suspension, because they aren't made to work with the weight and force I put on the bikes.

    Clydes Ride...

    Bought a 2009 Jamis Dakota 29er 'new-non-current' 3 years ago and love it.

    It rolls over everything.

    Bent my seatpost this summer, so I'm looking for a Thompson elite of a GD Turbo, if funds allow.

    Only mods were wider bars and NS Bikes Legeater pedals. They live up to their name... scars to prove. I carry the clipless pedals in my pack in case I find myself on a long road stretch. Still not confident enough to ride clipless in the bush, it wouldn't be pretty.

    Need new tires now as well. Acvtually looking for another wheelset to have knobbys on one and commuter tires on the other.

    Ride on.

    5' 10" 250lbs Haven't ridden in years, I picked up a 2012 Cannondale Scalpel 29r. What a blast. Completely out of shape, so I'm taking my time working up to more technical trails. Could not choose just one pic I liked, so I attached a couple.

    2012 Focus Black Forrest 2.0 29er, upgraded to XT rims, XT brakes, Race Face bars, fat guy seat for now, Blackspire plateform pedals (DO NOT LIKE), tubeless (Zero flats since doing this)

    plan on upgrading to a Raceface 3x10 crank and more rigid forks.

    Over 1000 miles road and trail, lost 37 pounds (hit a plateau, holiday food) 5-8, now 230, glad I found this forum. Great motivation.

    Soon to get my first FS bike, any opinion please post them Which one, first FS bike ? (yes another one of these threads)

    2012 Diamondback Overdrive.



    I've heard great things about this frame. Right now I'm just on the road. Just got a bike rack so it's off to the trails next. I'm hoping this baby holds up for a while. I really dig the way it looks and currently rides.

    Ordered a new Planet Bike Men's A.R.S. Anatomic Relief Bicycle Saddle and I'm going to be in the market for an air shock with lockout and a cassette with taller gearing. Something tells me that I may be looking out for a new wheelset too... sooner than I'd like to.

    If any of you other big guys have any recommendations about those parts, I'd love to hear them.

    250lbs - riding a KHS Winslow 29er



    Owned 4 months, have taco'd back wheel 3 times - latest (yesterday, broke a spoke!!)

    Thinking I need to invest in a stronger set up out back...

    Plus, purchase a more trail ready bike in the not to distant future.
