6'4" and 245#
Down from 280# a year ago ( and I think I am now a little taller)
I am riding a 2003 XL Gary Fisher Mt Tam 29er.
Most of you big boys should at least take a look at a 29er for your next purchase. I'll never have a 26" in wheeled bike again.
First day on a MTB in 10 years today...
Bought a 2003 Trek 8500 Saturday and did a shakedown ride today. Damn I'm out of shape! 6', 260 lbs for now.

Reason: forgot to name bike
You asked for it....
230 pounds of nakid pleasure....
and I ride...
Rockcrusher checking in.
I'm 6'3" tall and about 275 pounds wide. Figure I'll uncompress back to 6'4" if I can get down to 225. The college 205 seems a lost cause, which is puzzling because I drank a whole lot more beer back then. Anyway, I'm stoked to see a big rider joint; I usually lurk on the singlespeed and Arizona forums. Hey Veelz, what's up?
I ride 90% singlespeed (dirt + commute), the rest with gears. I expect to ramp up my mileage and reduce the singlespeed percentage now that I have a road bike.
My beloved off-road single and the only one of which I have a picture handy is an aluminum 1999 Kona Kaboom SE with a P2 fork. Relevant upgrades from stock are big red SPuDs, a Knock post, Yeti DH bars, Avid SD Mags, and a Salsa brake booster astern. The 36:20 gearing turns a pair of 2.25" Geax Sedonas (34:20 and 2.4 WTB Mutanos in the pic).
I'll see you all at the buffet then?

Yes you are. I see...
FSA carbon cranks
XTR952 midcage RD
Conti Twister supersonics(the 330ish gm versions, not the 460gm)
USE carbon alien post
Older 2000ish Sid fork
Specialized carbon thingie bottle cage(that WILL break sooner the later as I've used one myself for xc racing only)
Thats all I can see at a glance, and from mermory since the pic didn't come up while this response box is up.
Nice ride. (said the die hard weenie himself)
I'm "Redriderpro" and I'm a Clyde
the name came from those ex-moto years on a CR 250 Honda, but it fits the Id as well as
it did the CR.
I'm 6' tall, and currently 240 lb without gear, plan to be 210 by June.
Here's teh Id if the pic works. It's currently 30 lb. Only light parts are the carbon bars, American Classic wheelset and WTB Muto 2.4's.
So this is where the big boys post their toys.
I'm 6'4" currently 211LBS w/o gear.
This is a pic of the ride. '02 Switchblad. Since the pic I've swapped the wheel set for Chris King Mavic 819s.

Don't harsh my mello
6'-7" 225 lbs./ Custom Ventana
Ride a custom Ventana (Saltamontes previously),X-5 on the way.
Howdy big fellas!
I'm 6'6", and those scales at the grocery store don't go over 300 pounds, so I only know that I'm somewhere north of there. I guess I'm around 315. I have a sweet bullit, but I hardly ride it because I'm addicted to rigid SS riding. My main ride is a Karate Monkey, and I'm currently building another KM for commuting use. I doubt that I'll ever buy another 26" wheeled bike.
I'm IndyFan and I'm a Clyde.
I like the Clyde forum too. I'm on the smallish side: 5'9" 220ish (I haven't weighed myself since my annual physical in January). I once could say that I'm a Clyde formall the weight-lifting I do, but now it's more from sitting in an office for 9 years.
My current stable consists of:
'01 Independant Fab Special (Yes, that's right - Special not Deluxe). When they reviewed my specs etc. they came up with the short top tube model. It's fine with me, because it fits like a glove and rides like a dream. Sorry, no pics at this time.
It's spec'd with Z2 Atom80 fork, ISIS RaceFace Tubine cranks, Thomson post and stem, Easton EA70 bar, Avid Mech discs, SRAM 9.0SL rear and XT front derailleurs, King headset, and a wheelset consisting of Ringle Disc Jockey hubs and Velocity VXC rims (I'll be building a replacement set with King hubs and probably 819 rims when those wear out.)
'97 GT Riccochet with various mods and upgrades.
IF Steel Crown Jewel
For us shorter Clydes, if we get under 200lb we should still be considered Clydes because our bodies are still large for the frame we're on. I wish I weighed 220ish and were 6'5"! I have a friend who is 6'8" and weighs about the same as I do. I would hate to have his bike fit problems though!
Howzit fellows clydes? New to forum and mountain riding(one year). I'm 6'2" and #225 reducing. My ride is an XL BULLIT set up for freeride. This bike is awesome and has handled everything I've tried so far. Heavy winter rains have made Hawaii's trails very challenging, and I'm looking forward to the spring and summer months ahead. Keep posting helpful big rider tips and GO RIDE!
I'm 220 lbs. This is my do everything Saber. Had the chainstay crack on me. Azonic has been HORRIBLE in getting me the replacement. Over 3 months now and still waiting. In all fairness I really like the feel of the bike and how it rides. Truly feels balanced with excelent response through the Romic. Cheers
Well, I gotta say...WE'VE COME A LONG LONG WAY!!
5' 11", 225-230, depending on the day. Like a couple of other clydes here, I've dropped a lot of weight through training and a low carb lifestyle. I peaked at close to 320 and I loved myself and cycling enough that I had to make changes, before changes did me in.
Last summer, clownin'
...and this February, doing my thing as the "voice of the MMBA"
Jamis Dakar Team
Chris Herting built Jack Hammer Hardtail (SS extraordinaire)
Raleigh Professional Roadie
6'1" and 215 lbs
01 Cannondale Jekyll 2000 - Lefty, XTR
95 GT Zaskar - Judy XC with White Bros. springs and cartridge, XT, Chris King 8sp on 317's
88 Specialized Stumpjumper - misc parts...it's a commuter bike.
6' 250 lbs
Looks like I am running in the middle of the pack here. Currently in the stable:
'00 Jekyll 1000 SL XTR drive train, Monkey lights and just added Avid Mech disks and D3.1 on XT's
'91 C'Dale SE2000 --- commuter bike -- rigid front, 50mm rear travel. LX 7 sp -- after this year going to 9sp
'84 Bianchi road bike --- still not sure which one it is-- but it a 10 sp (5x2) almost never ridden ---although not sure what I want to do with it yet...maybe a single speed or may just leave it....had to take the bike with the SE2000
I would post pics, but had a choice...digital camera or commuter bike....digital camera or new rims and brakes. So I guess when I am done buying bike parts I will get the camera.
Help Me! I'm Shrinking!
6'2" Sub 240 (thank you very much) and dropping.
I will never be the 185 I was in college; I have much more muscle now than then. I dropped 50 pounds on Weight Watchers - you can too. Regular exercise is KEY. Also, don't adopt monkish dietary habits that limit your intake to a few types of food. Enjoying your diet is the key to succeeding. If you feel deprived, you will resent your plan and have a much harder time losing. Any way, I will be delighted to be back down to 220.

Squash Checking In...
I'm 6' 5" and 230. Probably less now, havn't had access to a scale. You'd be surprised how hard they are to find in Iraq! Cuttently deployed with my National Guard unit here. But when I get home the 03 Enduro will be getting a work out on a regular basis again.
I'm 6'2 205lbs, back in July when i started riding again after 12 years I was 245lbs. I ride an XL 03 Fuel 80 that is anything but stock. Current picture
