    6'5" 260 Clyde Rider SLC, Utah

    When I was 22 years old I was 6'5" 190 lbs. I encountered some health issues and got up top 278 at my heaviest. I'm now 37 years old and weigh 260 lbs. I'm in the best shape I've been in over 15 years. I'm currently riding a Giant Anthem X3 and love it. I feel as if this bike was made specifically for me. Extreme comfort and climbs like a maniac. The bike came with Mavic XM 177 rims but after my second ride bombing down a hill I got really uncomfortable with the flex I was feeling. I did tons of research and had bought two Atom Lab General Issue rims and I love these!! Very strong!!.

    Another clyde checkin in!

    Long time lurker just catching up with my fellow clydesdales.

    76" tall, 255#

    Riding a Kona Kula 29'r Deluxe and a Felt F65 Roadie. Seems like I've taken most of '11 off. I really miss riding. '10 averaged about 100 miles a week then taking that stupid job in Denver killed my season. Commuting 160+ miles a day kind of ruined my after work motivation. Maybe fall will provide some riding time. I just need to force myself out 2 or 3 times and I'll have the bug again!

    When I joined this forum a few months back I was 255 lbs. (6' 0"). Did some research, OK....a TON of research before buying a bike. I knew I eventually wanted to do a lot of trail riding but my 1st priority was to loose some weight. Anyhow I ended up buying a 2011 Redline Monocog at my LBS. I had them change the rear cog and put on some Schwalbe Big Apple tires so the bike would be more suitable for road riding...for now.

    Well I'm now down to 235 lbs. and still going. My goal is 199 lbs. (for now) and when I hit that goal I will buy myself, as a reward, a road bike and then return my Monocog to it's original state and use that for my SS trail rides.

    Absolutely loving this whole cycling thing with my SS Monocog along with the Endomondo route tracking app. I'm eating better, getting good exercise and though I'm still overweight with still a lot of jiggle to burn, I'm already feeling better than I have in a long time.

    Life's journey is not 2 arrive @ the grave safe but rather 2 skid in sideways totally worn out shouting "Holy S what a ride!"

    Digging around the MTBR forums and found one just for me. 6'1" and 245lbs, down from 260 a year ago. I drop to 240 every few weeks, but seem to eat my way back up to 245. I really want to get under that 240 and keep going down. Life just seems to get in the way of riding as much as I would like.

    I have a few weeks on my size XL access prowler 3.0 29er. Very happy with it so far. I had a too small Scott entry level hard tail previously. The prowler just fits me so much better.

    Hope to check in before ski season starts at a lower weight as I continue to ride this fall!

    Is your rear thru axle a pain to get out. I have to hammer it out with 1/4" sockets. Tried Cleaning it up with emery cloth and the inside of hub to but doesn't seem to help. I'm new to thru axle just wondering if there all like this.

    Oh it won't let me put my pic on there its in my profile but I don't have enough post. To Post a link.

    glad to be here

    6'-5"/255 - the latter due to lack of riding.

    1) Peter Mooney Custom roadbike, built for me in '88, full Campagnolo, upgraded to integrated shifters and 9 speed in late nineties. many centuries done on this one.

    2) Merlin hardtail Ti mountain bike. L frame size (bought in an era when folks didn't concern themselves with frame size). light AND flexible, bastard combo of XTR, SunTour (remember them?) with SRAM shifters.

    3) Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon 29er, just purchased but not delivered. XXL frame size, XTR, etc.

    looking to doing more biking overall to lose 30 pounds or so.

    I'm 5'11" and tipped the scales at an embarassing 325 pounds back on August 1. Since then I started riding to work everyday and going on at least one 20+ miler a week. Happy to say that after 8 weeks I am now a less embarassing but still not great 308 pounds.

    For now I'm riding a Windsor 29.1 single speed modified from a 32/18 gearing to a 42/18.

    I am 6' 2" and 119kgs(262lbs) started the year at 126kgs.

    I really need to stop eating so much crap. I have ridden 4632kms this year and only dropped 7kgs.

    I couldn't ride 150kms in one day earlier in the year though.

    Big Boy

    I am 6'5 and 300 lbs. Ride a XTR tallboy carbon with Stan/Flow rims and Chris King Hubs, I ride hard and no issues. Just did the Fools Gold race and the only thing that fell off was my bottle cage (and tons of sweat)

    Also have a Gen 2 Nomad Aluminum. Love this bike but was better for Colorado. I now live in FL and the Tallboy does the trick better down here.

    Smile Hi I'm Aaron and I'm a Clydesdale....Hi Aaron.

    I'm weighing in at 6'6" and 250 lb I used to look like a cyclist when I was 20 now 10 years 60 pound later I look like a bouncer. Some one said "what haven't we broken?" Yes I have broken every aluminum frame that didn't have a suspension fork attached to it. Chains snap for no apparent reason, cranks, chain rings and petals don't last all that long. Specialized told me if I broke another Fat Boy 24" they weren't going to warranty it. I now ride a steel Leader road bike, Meeeh after breaking the aluminum/carbon leader frame. My Mtn bike is a 22" Sette Razzo 9er with Manitou Tower 100mm fork (needs the extra heavy springs) and I love it. Last but not least Specialized 24" team BMX with a Manitou black 100mm fork. I will always love this bike. The Sun BFR rims have survived 4 frames and two sets of hubs.

    Ride fat boy ride!

    I was down to a healthy 195lbs when I was riding daily but some injuries have had me sidelined for a few months. Hopefully I'll be back to riding soon. TX has been hotter than hell this summer and now that it's cooling down I can't wait to get back on the trails.

    Hi,

    A year ago I was 208 lbs and 6'5" tall. I ride a GF HiFi 29er. Now after a cancer diagnosis last January and eight months of chemo, I'm down to 187lbs (still 6'5"). Oh yea, and cancer free!

    What type of bike is that and what is your setup? I'm a beginner to mountain biking and after lurking about on these forums a while, I decided to save a little more money and get a good starter bike rather than a Wal-Mart special. I'm 6'0" 270-280lbs and I don't have a bike shop less than 80 miles away, so what would my best option be for getting started?

    This is my first post, btw. I'm looking forward to putting a pic of whatever I get on here in the near future.

    Started out at 330lbs, bought a road bike and got down to current weight with thousands of miles and eating much healthier. Had two babies in the past 13 months, so the time to ride is limited, but the pleasure of spending time with kids is great pay off.

    I'm nearly the biggest I've ever been in raw terms of weight. I have been lifting a lot lately so I can sort of confidently say that some of that would be muscle, but I'd be kidding myself if I thought I didn't need to lose 10-20.

    210 and fast

    Dude is it just me or does the bike world neglect 200 lbs plus rider who over 6ft? I'm on a giant trance x4 and have had to replace the cassette the chain and the back derailleur. That's usual wear and tear but my main concern is the suspension... I've pumped up the back shock but I don't know what to do with the front shock..seems it only really helps when I lock it out.. Any suggestions would be helpful as I like to launch my big ass off things...I'm also about 6ft and about 210.,. But a damn fit 210 if I don't say so myself.

    I've been fortunate that my Clydeness hasn't busted up too many parts (1 seatpost)...but to your point, clothing, that's another matter. For me, I start at the XL sizes and see if anything is going to fit.

Funny how people seem to bail off the trail when I come flying dowm behind them. Must be all the creaking and moaning the bike is doing trying to carry my large self.

    6'2 285 kinda guy that will be lucky to get below 220. Due to a back injury I ended up selling my bike to get extra cash now I am in the gym 5 to 6 days a week and planning to start a build this winter. I would like to be 235 by spring. I caught the riding bug again after riding a rental rocky mountain at cuyuna trails in Crosby Minnesota. I was very pumped after the ride! It was nice to know that I can still handle a bike, just needed to get the legs back. I GOT SPANKED BY GF DAD WHO is maybe 5'9 165# soaking wet. I could get him on the downhills easy but everytime I needed to pedal he was gone. I don't like loosing so its time to build a big boy bike.

    Nice! I started off @ 285 riding an '04 Hardrock Comp Disc. I LOVE that bike.



    As of right now, I've still got the '04 Hardrock, and I use it primarily for trails. I also have a Schwinn Frontier GSX cromo that's either a 96 or 97...not sure. Use it for commuting. I also literally just got off the phone after ordering an '11 P.1. Should be here in a week...can't wait.

    Well, the last time that I posted was on 7/11/11 and here is an update. I have lost 17 pounds or so. Currently hovering around 321. I am lifting weights and doing cardio daily. I had some pretty great rides this summer. The weight is coming off slow and steady. Here is a recent picture. I am 8 days out from the Iceman Cometh Race in Traverse City. My only regret is not waiting one more year. I was hoping to be at or below 300 but here goes nothing.

    Don't worry about the numbers on the scale. Do it right and go slow. livestrong.com has a great calorie and nutrition tracker. Fast weight loss doesn't last!

    Literally just picked her up yesterday...2011 p.1

    So far, all I've done is test her out, pull of the reflectors, and peel off the warning labels. Looking for pedals/grips/seat now, and might narrow the bars up a bit as well.

    I'm 6' and 238.5 as of this morning.
