    Good morning gentlemen!

    I'm 6'4", 250lbs. I recently lost 16lbs due to cycling and a proper diet.

    As benevis66, I too came from a BMX background and grew out of it.

    My beast of a bike is a 2013 Specialized Rockhopper XL.

    Thanks for the compliment!

    If you're talking about the size of my bike, it's 21" (XL) with 29er Schwalbe Fat Apple tires.

    Hello there. Just introducing myself

    My name is Gary and I'm from near Northampton in the uk.
    I'm 5' 10" and 350lbs
    I ride dh and freeride on a 2011 Scott voltage completely standard aside from x-firm spring in the forks and a 600lb rear spring.

    Came across this site whilst trying to find 5xl(60") mx/dh jerseys.

    If anyone knows where I can find some, I'd be grateful

    Cheers
    Gary

    I'm 6' even. Currently at the heaviest I have ever been. 325lbs. Was down to 240, previously 280. High school was 180, then I smoked a lot of pot after I left and stopped riding. I enjoyed working as a ski and bike tech for the last decade but stopped riding about 5 years ago. Stopped working in bike shops this year and now want to get back on the bike.

    She's 23 lbs. build spec is in my profile.

    6"3 and go between 230 and 255lbs or so. I'm a personal trainer so I'm fairly solidly built but like to have my beers too! Avid roadie, just decided about 5 days ago that I really want a beater 29er for the snow and crap weather here in NYC. Also tired of having to baby my road bike while my 145lb cycling friends crash through potholes and ride off of curbs! I do all my commuting in nyc by bike and do it on a Surly Disc Trucker and I do my race like riding on a bikes direct motobecane immortal with full force group and carbon tubulars. Hoping to get some advice on how to build this 29er frame I just got

    Hi there fellow big folk.

    6' 7" here and currently a slim(ish) 215 lbs. Recently enjoyed my transition over to 29" wheels & can't see myself going back. Currently spending most of my riding time on a 24" Surly Ogre. I can also be seen sometimes on my 10 year old "made in the USA" 63cm Cannondale road bike.

    I'm born & raised in the UK, but I like American bikes, as they tend to be more readily available in proper man sizes

    @Graham77 Can I be the first person on here to recommend that you try a 29er.

    Is that an offer BareNecessities? I'll take a Trek Superfly in the 23 inch size, haha.

    I broke my Kona frame, so found the specialized for a good deal, and had to stay on the small wheels for now. As soon as I have a spare $2000 I'll be wanting to make the plunge.

    But for now, I'll keep killing the parts I have now, if it aint broke, don't fix it.

    ill recommend you try and 29 first... just because we are tall doesn't mean a 29er magically works better... I hated riding 29s..... 26 works best for me

    Very true. Always try before you buy. I don't in any way believe 29ers improve the way I ride. I do however think they fit us tall folk better.

    Bikes are bikes though & I'm not here to preach

    I tested a 22" Kona Kahuna. It was what I wanted to spend but the bike wasn't strong enough for my tastes. If I go 29" wheels I'm going to have to have a strong wheelset and I dont want to spend all that quite yet. I want to try a 24" Surly Ogre out to see how the ride is, because that looks promising for what I'm looking for.

    But the ride style is what I like though, I'm all about speed, I like a big ring just to edge it up past 75km/h on downhills. I like the benefits in climbing too, while I do like the technical aspects more demanded in 26" wheel riding off-road, trails, etc. my vote goes to the 29" style of riding.

    uhm.... I'm 5'2" and I just placed an order for a Cube LTD Pro 2012 model (size 16 as that's the smallest they have)

    I believe it's too big for me according to the size charts but I was led to believe I could always just cut the seat post down to fit.
    Sorry = I know you're all giants in here compared to me (retired gymnast - that's my excuse!) but I just had to tell about my new first proper bike!

    6' 3" and weighing in at ~260

    Was riding an 06 S-Works until someone decided to remove it from my garage along with my Gary Fisher and g/f's Trek. Now the nightmare with the insurance company begins...

    @richkm20, that totally sucks, hopefully the insurance company does'nt jack you around and you get enough money to buy a new one.
