    6' @ 225 (was 230, looking for 200)

    Nice to see the big boys are out in force.

    Riding a 03 DBR xts moto. And winner of the 2002 Heavy but Healthy Postfalls Biathalon. It was fun passing all of the guys with the skinny road bikes with flats on my old 32lb FSR Comp.

    I'm 6"3', about 270#. Nowhere near as good a rider as most of you (and without really technical trails), I'm on a Schwinn Mesa. It's a fantastic bike for my ability.

    I'm 6'2" and weigh in at about 208. I'd like to hit 195 or even less which may happen soon because the weather is clearing up finally. I just started riding a year ago almost to the day and started with a Fuji Outland SE. It is now my commuter for about 10 miles a day round trip, and recently for my birthday I got (bought!) a Giant NRS 3 for the dirt. I LOVE the Giant!

    I am 5'10" and weigh about 225. I ride a Marin team chromoly hardtail and I love the bike. It is a 97 model and it is still holding strong.( could be because back in the days when I bought it I was a bit lighter)

    Finally - some normal guys!

    ...and not some skinny-a$$ed weirdos. How dare they pass us on the uphills anyway?

    6'1" 216 lbs. - I'm down from 222 lbs. on January 1st. I've been working out 3-4x a week with free weights and high-intensity cardio (how's 45 mins. on the stairmaster for fun?), so some fat weight is now muscle weight. Losing is hard now that I'm 10 months from 40, but I'm determined to be fit and forty rather than fat and forty - my goal is 190 lbs.

    I've got two bikes currently - a circa 1989 Kona Hei Hei, currently with a Manitou Black and Rhyno Lites, and a brand new Giant AC2 which appears to be bombproof, even for a dainty, graceful guy like me. Pics are "before" me surrounded by yummy food and the new bike.

    6-3" and 265 here, trying to get down to 225-230. Here's my ultralight XC bike: 03 BigHit Expert with 03 Super T. It's not worth the trouble for me to try to use light weight parts. I'd rather drag around a few extra pounds of bike than have to constantly replace broken parts.

    East Coast Clydesdale...

    6'2", 225lbs. Ride a Bontrager Race steel hardtail. I keep trying to convince myself to get a SC Heckler, but the Bontrager keeps convincing me to ride it one more season (going on 9 years straight on the same bike).

    BTW - this photo is after a clydesdale race in the Mid-Atlantic. I'm starting my boys early in the mtb race scene.

    I'm 6'0" and 225 lbs. down from 260+ lbs. in May '03. There seems to be a weight loss/low carb theme around here. Count me in with that group. I've been riding serioiusly, more or less, since 1993.

    My current bikes:
    '03 Kona Dawg, stock except for the Mavic Crossmax XLs
    '02 Fisher Mt. Tam 29, all stock
    I also have an '97 Trek 8000 that I'm thinking about converting into a singlespeed so I can see what all the hype is about.

    I've had a coupe troubles with the Dawg but overall, I'm extremely happy with both bikes.

    6'2"/220lb/DeKerf

    I'm 6'2" and float between 215-220 these days - likely to go down now that I'll be commuting 50km/day.
    Just had to sell my beauty Blur...sigh... but I'm now sharing my son's 19.5" DeKerf Team ST. Went out with a buddy last weekend for it's maiden voyage. Such a sweet bike, but boy does it need at least a front disc!?! I'd forgotten what life with V-brakes was like here in BC - pull the levers to the bar and hope for the best. I put on some Rhinolite/Michelin DH tires for the ride (a bit overkill, but suited the ride we went on), so the bike's a bit different from the pic.

    Cheers boys,

    Mike E.

    I am glad there is a forum for us X-L types. I ride with a bunch of smaller (and younger) guys and they constantly kick my butt. I may never be able to keep up with them, but I will have just as much fun as they do.
    The bike in the pic is my old '99 Specialized Enduro Test Bike. I have a new '04 Specialized Enduro Pro with all XC stuff on it. So far so good.

    Wow, this thread has been going for a while now!....

    I'm at my typical snowboarding seasonal weight of 268lbs, and 6' 3" tall. But, mountain bike/kayak/backpacking season is right around the corner. I'll be weighing in at around 250 by the middle of June, I suspect. I don't go too much below 250, which is a healthy weight for somebody with my muscle mass/bone density and height.

    I ride an 03 Ironhorse SGS pro for downhill, a 98 k2 Beast for freeride and an 00 KHS Team ST for XC.

    The worst part of being a clydesdale: having all your friends waiting for you when you finally get to the top of a climb.

    The best part of being a clydesdale: waiting for all your friends at the car while they get down the hill!!!

    got one of dose too

    VD straight up - got it cheap off ebay and run it as SS [44x18 or 16] love the frame but the stash bars and that adjustable stem had to go. - couldn't get to stay tight. my other rides
    are
    old nishiki fixie
    GT tachyon SS
    Cdale roadie which sees no love now that i have been bitten by the SS fixie bug. who knew a bike i bought for 140 bucks would become my fave.
    holding steady at 6' 2" 210 -

    QUOTE=f*nætik]...and someday I'll break that magic 199 barrier just to prove to myself I can do it.

    <img src="http://gallery.consumerreview.com/webcrossing/images/fanatic(1).jpg">

    My current stable consists of three bikes:

    For winter riding I rely primarily on my Van Dessel Buzz Bomb. It's a 29"er (all you big guys <u><i>need</i></u> to try a 29"er) and it rocks in the mud.

    White Brothers CX-1 air fork, 2.1" WTB Nanoraptors, Avid 185/165 discs, Thudbuster, F&R Fenders, and who can forget the Rohloff Speedhub.

    If I get to it before my edit times out I'll update this picture with the current 31.8 bar setup: Ritchey aluminum "Rizer" and Titec RIP stem, along with LP ends.

    The rims are heavy mofos from Alex -- G4000 me thinks? -- and over 700g apiece. That doesn't automatically mean they're strong, just heavy.

    My next full suspension bike is sure to be a 29"er, but that's probably going to be a ways off.

    <img src="http://gallery.consumerreview.com/webcrossing/images/bbsh(2).jpg">

    My other pride and joy is my Iron Horse Hollowpoint. Yeah, it's got tiny 26" wheels, but it's a fun bike all the same.

    Manitou X-Vert Air up front and Cane Creek AD12 in the rear (can you tell I'm an air shock fan?) with 2.4" Mutanoraptor in front and my old standby, Continental Traction Pro 2.1 in the rear.

    I went with a medium frame on this one because of cockpit length, and therefore have to go with way too much seatpost extension coupled with a high rise (25° rise) stem plus 1.5" of spacers underneath it. This is so I could run my Titec Hellbent Flat Tracker, whereas a riser bar could have eliminated spacers and/or stem rise.

    I'm also running Avid 185/165 discs on this one, along with a Rohloff Speedhub, and while I had to rebuild the Sun DS1XC front rim after it completely untensioned on me, the Velocity Aero Heat in the rear benefits from the wide, symmetrical build the Speedhub offers and has been completely bulletproof.

    <img src="http://gallery.consumerreview.com/webcrossing/images/hpsh(11).jpg">

    Then I gots my "town bike" -- it ain't really a road bike due to the narrow gearing on account of the Nexus gear hub -- and to be honest, I don't know how the runs stand up to any abuse with the skinny little high pressure tires.

    The theory behind this bike is that it consists of a collection of cheap components and can easily be locked up without too much fear of parts being stolen off of it. Theory hasn't been fully tested yet (haven't left it chained up overnight in SF). Kinda screams for attention though, doesn't it?

    But heck, this is a mountain bike forum, so who cares! Here's a pic.

    225#, 6'

    Just finished up my winter build:

    Trek Y11 frame
    Marzocchi EXR fork
    Truvativ Stylo Team cranks
    Shimano XT front, rear der & shift pods
    Shimano Deore disc brakes front and rear (A2Z adapter on rear)
    Rock Shox Sid w/ lockout (added after picture)
    Vuelta Excalibur XC wheelset (heavy but they look pretty good)

    I just hope the frame holds up while my weight comes down. I'm shooting for 200-205.

    And my all time fav....

    Rocklobster Cyclocross. For the past 2 years this was my main offroad bike till I had my nasty accident and developed sciatica and then I was out for a total of 8 months. Slowly but surely I am getting back to my cycling form. I forgot.. I weigh in at 215 lbs.

    6'0", 204.5 lbs. as of this AM

    I ride a 3 month old Trek Liquid 30. I just spent four days in Moab bashing the crap out of the thing. I'm talking a few 5' drops and more than I can remember 3-4' drops. I mean launching off these drops, not rolling over them. No mechanical issues. The rear wheel has even stayed true after I had the LBS do a solid truing job where they dished the wheel as well. Couldn't be happier.

    Good to see other Clydes!

    I am 6'6", weigh 335 lbs. I lift weights three times a week, and run two miles afterwards. I ride a KHS Fetish with a bunch of mods, the obvious ones being suspension. Romic revalved my rear shock and put an 850lbs spring on, and I have yet to bottom it doing some pretty big launches. I have a DMN USD 180 up front, with custom springs. Besides some rearend flex, the bike has been great. I am an old BMX guy, so I like to jump. I will post some pics as soon as they are developed of me at the local trails. I must admit, I make the damn bike look like a 20"er! Take care, big uns!

    I'm 6'3", 265.

    Ride a Specialized FSRxc w/Rhyno Lites and a Marzocchi MX Comp w/ETA up front. Seatpost (I've been through 3) is a Titec Hellbent, which I hope will last longer.

    A friend of mine who is 350+ (pounds, not years) just upgraded his bike. He was tired of the literal 2" of rear suspension on his Rockhopper Pro (hardtail, no less) at the chainstays, so he bought a Craftworks Rail dual slalom frame. It works great as an XC setup for him, and it's definitely the only bike I've ever heard of where the chainstays are I-beams.

    5 foot 8 inches tall, 34 waiste, 48 chest... I basically look like a walking tree trunk. Sometimes when I'm bombing through the forest or busting off of a hit people mistake me for a rolling stump... Here's me 3 years and 50lbs ago acting like a punk after blasting the glock and 45 off at my friends vineyard outside of salinas(CA), my new ride, and me at Christmas all excited over some new board sox

    I'm hopeing to pedal off the 50 lbs over the summer and get back to my 175 lb self...fingers crossed, it's been a 3 year battle.

    You shouldn't have any problem. When those frames first came out, I just had to have one. I had the maroon model from the first year. Built the bike myself with my own choice of components, so I don't remember how it was offered. But, it served me well for 2 seasons averaging 700 miles per season. In fact, I still run into the guy I sold it to from time to time. Hasn't had any problems with it either that I know of.

    ... and if we just ... Medium Clyde, extra cheese, no pickles.

    So, lets say 6'0", 240, riding an 01 Kona Muni-Mula. I've only bent the seatpost, a couple of sets of pedals, and destroyed a rear wheel. On the other hand, that Hollowtech crank just keeps taking a beating and coming back for more!.

    Let's see what happens this year....

    Good job! Ky Super Clydesdale!!!

    I'm 6ft tall and weigh in at over 350+ lbs. I lost 60lbs last year due to the discovery of the mountain bicycle but gained about 30 of it back this winter.

    I ride XC on a Craftworks RAIL set up with heavy duty freeride/DH components. I went through 2 frames last year with the RAIL being my 3rd and ultimate hardtail. The second frame I still have but I was getting 2 inches of suspension from the chainstays when I would jump things and stuff. It is now my commuter bike. I guess that's it fer now!!!

    Okay. I am 5'10" ish and about 240. Have to lose the pregnancy weight...I gained more than my wife!

    My main bike is a 2002 Klein Adept Comp. I also have a Iron Horse Rogue Team warranty frame that I am either going to buld up as a single speed or sell.

    i may not be the quickest dude uphill, but that extra weight sure helps going downhill! the nuke proof frame is what i've put together for a mountain bike on what little money i have here during college; the second is my franken-bike that i rigged up with extra parts that i had laying around, free junk parts that i scored from my lbs, and a few odds and ends that i had to buy - max investment: $20.

    can't wait to get a new mountain bike, as this one is tired of lugging my phat a$$ around.

    Hovering at 210/215.

    Well, 6'0" and I was 225 forever now I've made it to 215/210 and just won't go any lower. No matter what I do. Just retired my 2001 NRS1 for a 2004 NRS1. Only thing I'm changing on it right now is the front shock, I'm going to swap it out with a Sid Air. That's what my had on the old bike and loved it. None of that lock out stuff to worry about. If you want it stiff just put more air in it and vice-versa.

    6'2" 226 lbs (down from 265 on jan 1). I ride an s works epic.

    For the guys interested in the weight loss, it's been south beach diet at first, now I just don't ever eat sweets, cut my meals back (1 sammich instead of 2 or 3) and all my stuff that I eat that has flour in it is whole grain. Trying to get to 180 which would remove me from clyde status, but I wanna climb faster, so it's a sacrifice I'll have to make.

    You know the difference between beginner 19-29 and beginner 30-39? 30-39 can afford better bikes.

    I am Columbus Ohio based Budwieser stock holder, and most of it I hold around my mid-section.

    I am 6 foot tall and was weighing in at 267lbs, but it has dropped a little since I started riding and lifting wieghts again. Riding my Moutain Bike is simply a nice pace change than jogging or the various cardio machines.

    1 month of low sugar low carb dieting took me from 267 to 245 and still dropping. even though I stopped the diet part as much, i am about to restart, since I will be working 3rd shift.

    I ride a 2003 Specialized hard rock comp, and stripped the crank out.

    Oh well, I hope to get back in the 200-225 range, since believed I looked pretty good at that wieght.


    But I have broadened out since that image, ( college days )......

    Not used to being "the little guy", but I've raced as high as 215lbs, and as low as 190...

    I ride a Specialized S-Works Epic w/ the Mavic Crossland wheels. Here's a older pic of me about 19 hours into a 24hr solo race, smiling b/c the freakin' sun finally came up...

    I'm 6'1" @ 215-225lbs....down from 252lbs just a year ago (damn Hostess Twinkies)

    See attached pics as to my recent rides.......Titus Switchblade, Jamis Komodo, and now my new Kona Unit and oh yea, I can't forget my AMA SuperSport Suzuki GSXR.

    I have a new '04 Ventana X5 w/6 inch rockers, Maverick DC fork, and Rohloff hub in the works but won't have it running for a few weeks yet. I'll post photos when she's ready to hit the trails.

    Wow

    Well I am certainly not the biggest rider in the thread, but I do try to make up for it in broken parts. (see my avatar)
    I generally run anywhere between 225 and 240 at 5'10" and if something is on my bike it is there because I have yet to break it.
    The Surly is basically identical to it's photo, although it has grown an inch or two of very noodly travel in the form of a Z5. (it was $50 what would you do?)
    The Dekerf has undergone numerous revisions, but I don't have an up to date image. Just picture a bunch of Saint components anywhere they could be.

    I pitty the little people

    I break new ground since I make most clydesdales look small. I'm in a whole new class I call Goliath. I'm 6'4" and weigh in at 330 Lbs. Yes, I should be playing football or something like that, but mountain biking can be just as aggressive and just as much fun! I have a Surly Instigator hard tail and have just ordered a Banshee FS rig.

    Just got my Heckler last week, build it up with the Saint kit. Marzocchi Z1 FR w/ QR 20. I love it, my riding is going to a whole new level. I'm 6 feet 4 1in tall weighing anywhere from 255-275 lbs. depending on how much drinking I did on the weekend. My my first ride, Giant Iguana, I broke the both rims, crank, both derailers, pedals, seat post, and craked the frame all in 8 months. I hope none of this happens on my Heckler.

    6'0 and 206lbs

    My weight fluctuated with the seasons. At the end of winter it hovers around 210-215. By October I drop out of the Clyde category and weigh in around 185-190. I need to find a winter hobby!!

    My ride is a 2001 Trek 6700. It is mostly stock with the exception of upgraded derailleurs (XT) and a Wipermann Stainless Steel chain. I might be forgetting some other upgrades, but that pretty much covers it.

    Here is a picture of me coming down a sweet rock garden at a mountain called Ansan, located in the middle of the bustling city of Seoul, South Korea,

    I was about 240lbs the last time I weighed myself. I ride a custom Eclipse (brand made for a local shop) titanium frame with most of the parts off my 98 GT Karakoram that broke in 2000.

    40,000 pound thread

    40,000 pounds and counting. This must be the heaviest thread anywhere.
    OK............ I did not actually add up our bulks, it's an educated guess based on 170 posts at a rough average of 235# each. Just think if we all jumped in the same swimming pool at once

    i am 6'1 and weigh 240 i have gained about 35 pounds since being in college. so i bought my new bike ( 2003 Kona Kikapu) to get back into shape. I used to ride about 4-6 hours a day before coming to school, but i am sick of the weight and am finally doing something about it. I even rode today for about 3 hours.

    Cool-blue Rhythm Only 230 and 6' 2"

    Well, unlike many of you folks, my weight has stayed at 225 to 230lbs for many years now, a little heavier in the winter a little lighter in the summer. Actually I don't have aspirations of going further down, I kinda like where I am, along with my 6' 2" frame.

    What I do care is that can cruise at 20-22mph on my Independent Fabrication Crown Jewel (after the start of the season and on flat grounds). As for my Bianchi DISS, I can regularly go 16-17mph on the street (much slower on the dirt).

    I really try not to obsess about my weight, I just go by wether my bibs fit tight or not. Why put extra pressure on my self? I am out there riding to enjoy myself. Besides, I like it when I pass by these skinny road riders (ofcourse I give them plenty behind which to draft!).

    Ride hard,
    Dimitri

    Just a small Clyde. 6'3 and 210. I ride a Santa Cruz Blur and before that used to ride lightweight aluminum hardtails. Other than seatposts I've never snapped a frame or part due to my weight.

    I'm Mellltiiiing!!!

    5' 9", 209lbs as of this morning...

    Down from somewhere in the 250's when I got back on the trails last spring. Was briefly down into the low 190's last fall before I broke my frame. Kinda ironic... I lost all that weight, and THEN my bike broke. If I lose the weight again, do I have to quit posting here?

    Currently riding a 2002 KHS FXT Pro, ( broken once ). It's held up pretty well considering the abuse I put it through, but it's starting to get flexy in the BB area. Next bike will probably be some type of Freeride/Urban Assault hardtail rig with as many inches of 'Zokes as I can afford up front.

    DISC BRAKES RULE!!!

    A small clyde

    I'm a newbie, just started real mtn biking. I'm short, 5'5" and fairly hefty, 206 lbs. Hope to lose some of that over the summer/fall. I ride an '04 Norco Bigfoot and a cheap @$$ Huffy for commuting. The pic is the only pic I could find of an '04 Bigfoot on Google. Mine is a far nicer colour though, rootbeer.

    I'm 5'9, and ~260 pounds. Yes, I'm fat, but I also have too much muscle for my own good.

    The fleet consists of:

    -My daily "beater" city bike. A nashbar steel frame with the paint stripped off, 21 speed, with road gears, 105 derailleur, a surly rigid fork in front with an avid 203 and a headset beefy enough to handle that kind of braking power. Road slicks on mountain wheels.

    -My first nashbar steel frame, which is on semi-permanent loan to a friend. Mavic d521 wheels, ceramic in front, avid SD7 brakes, LX derailleurs, cane creek headset, azonic shorty 100 stem, and some WIDE azonic riser bars.

    -My recumbent: a vision R40, with stock stuff except for an ultegra crank, XTR/mavic D521 ceramic rear wheel, avid brakes, and some modifications on the stuff that carries the long, long chain.

    -The queen of the collection: 2001 Trek 6700, 2000 Zokie Z3 80mm fork, king headset, Specialized/hugi hubs laced into D321 disc rims, avid 185s front and rear, cane creek thudbuster seatpost, XT derailleurs, LX cranks, SD ultimate brake levers, azonic shorty 75 stem.

    Just bought an 03 Kona Hahanna.


    Hope she holds out after reading all the posts of people shredding various components

    I got on my first mountain bike in 2002, 6'1", ~255lbs, it was a Diamond Back Response with RST Gilla Forks and LX and Deore components. The components started to wear out just this summer with a BB, Chain, Couple of cables and a rear tire finally giving it up.

    So I waited until a sale happened at The Bike Shop and picked up a sweet deal of an HT Stumpjumper Comp Disc, I'm down to 235lbs or so and looking to really get into riding hard tail hard core...

    I think I'll keep the Diamond Back for awhile though... she isn't a race bike, but dang, she is a good bike...
