    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 )......

    6'1 x 202lbs A little guy...

    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...

    El Beastro in Da HOUSE!!!

    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 6' 6" and between 285 and 300, depending on what specials are running a pizza hut! My commuter bike is a 2001 Raleigh M80 that I have two sets of wheels for swapping between dirt and street. But my baby is a 2003 Specialized Epic with full XTR, Thomson and Easton. A very fast bike.

    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.

    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...
