    202#, 6'1"...

    ...and someday I'll break that magic 199 barrier just to prove to myself I can do it.



    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 need 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.



    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.



    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.

    6' 4" at 220 right now, without the gear.

    My favorite ride is my custom B-29. I also have a 21" Ventana Salty which I'm probably parting with since a custom racer x 29er order is about to be placed. Yes, "taller" riders do need to try a 29er.

    Very cool to have the Clyde forum!!

    Just a wee Clydesdale at 6', 205# (and I struggle not to drop to 195# by the end of riding season). Here I am last summer on my ElSalty, which I've since snapped and replaced w/ an X-5. (fingers crossed as I upload the pic)

    thanks to my mountain bike. I'm 6'; weighed 202 last June when I got my bike (Trek 4300). Since then I've kept myself under 195, working to get under 190. My Trek is getting a well-deserved rest while I've been playing with a Mt Tam 29er. Mostly on the road with the ample snow falling this year (for a change).

    6'5" and 235 now....

    In season, probably 215 at best.

    bikes? A custom 29" by Rick Hunter. EBB, SS, avid 185/160 discs, XTR parts and DT/Salsa wheels. Also a WTB Phoenix as my classic, never sell bike, and an old Trek roadie i converted to a 'cross/fixxy for commuting. I'm expecting a new Scandium Kona Jake the Snake for next cross season that I'll set up SS style. I'm in between roadies now too. I'm considering building my own roadie if I can find the time....

    I am 6'5" and currently weigh 225lbs down from 260lbs since fall

    I ride steel. Singlespeed, cyclocross, and hardtail. Mostly singlespeed and cyclocross on the trail. I consider getting a full suspension bike every year, but can't seem to pull the trigger. I like carbs and unfiltered beer. I am a southern California native and moved to the Front Range, CO. a year ago today. Love Colorado. I don't break everything, just wheels and my own bones. When I crash...I crash hard and the ground does shake.

    I'm glad to see this forum born.....there are lots of big boys out there getting it on.

    Clydesdale...

    5'11" 230 lbs.
    Down from 260 lbs. this summer. Got a Trek 4500 in September. Riding 3-5 times a week got rid of it--and I haven't even changed my eating habits Haven't broken anything on the Trek yet. Upgrading to FS in May. Thinking about either a SC Heckler, a Trek Liquid or a Giant VT. Any suggestions from my more experienced "clydesdale" brothers?? I want to try to stay around $2500 or less. ANY suggestions or ideas will be MUCH appreciated.
    I hope you have a big trunk... 'cuz I'm puttin' my bike in it.

    wow deja vu for me, I think I said this last night.

    250#, 6' ok,ok, 5'11+3/4. so I'm not big, I'm fat. hey, its like built in crash padding.

    Heckler. overkill for FL? not for a fatty.

    6'2" 265lbs

    I'm starting a new category-the Super Clydesdale-250+! We'll get special treatment during races-like-we'll be timed in 1 mile segments and then be forced to inhale Krispy Kreme's at certain checkpoints and then swill down a thick ale before we get back on the bike. And of course, at the finish line there will be a huge couch and a big screen tv with Anna Nicole Smith-our sister in spirit!

    Bikes: Santa Cruz Blur (too noodly for me-selling)
    Turner XCE
    Sweet Ass Surly 1x1
    Santa Cruz Bullit (my personal fave)
    Just ordred: Ventana La Bruja & X5 to replace my Blur.

    Maybe if I spent as much time riding as I do buying and selling bikes I'd be a little guy!
    Doubt it! I'm Bench Pressing over 400lbs-so I'm allowed to be big!
