    Hi all,

    I'm 6 ft 3in and only weight 331 lbs...

    I currently ride a 2005 Giant STP, which is FAR too small for any actual riding, but is great fun for dirt jumping/riding the city streets/using to boost to the local dairy to grab ice creams and sodas on hot days

    Good morning to every one, I only say that cause its 3:30 Am here where I am at.

    I am new to this forum, as this is a life changing decision for me. I am a 31 year old guy from the midwest region of the US. Lets just say there is alot of corn where I am at.

    I guess I can say I am 6'3" tall and about 380lbs.

    I don't have a bike just yet and it being winter, I probably will not get one till mid spring.

    So for now I will be purchesing a excersice bike as a supplement till then.

    I will be posting my progress in another thread. I know that long term goals are good, but right now I am setting my short term goal.

    Starting Jan 1, I will be starting my journy to a fitter thinner me. I will set 3 month goals and will be posting my progression as i go. So my 3 month goal from Jan 1 to April 1 Will be to lose 40lbs

    So by April 1 My goal is to be 340lbs or better. Wish me luck and its nice to be here

    Hello, I just joined MTBR.... I have ridden bikes and motobikes my whole life. I will be 33 this summer and I have a 2 year old and a new one coming in March. I have been in good shape for pretty much my whole life. I played Basketball forever, even played in college. But in the last couple years Family, life, and work has took its toll. I am 6'9" and 270 lbs. In my playing days I was right around 225-230 with zero fat. I'm looking to get back down to that area and figured MTB would be a fun way to get there (i know it won't be all fun). Anyways I have a basher Trek that I got a couple years ago. But my piece de resistance is my brand new XXL Santa Cruz Tallboy LTc.... Sure, its totally over kill for me right now but I live in an awesome mtb community Northern Cali. I'm on the coast about 60 miles from Oregon and 5 hours from Tahoe. Hopefully soon I will be able to take full advantage of this sweet ride!

    That's an incredible bike!! And over the course of a year or so, you'll have saved money compared to a gym membership (just in case you were looking to justify the purchase!! )

    I'm a large guy in my neck of the woods. I've been riding a 21.5" frame Gary Fisher Marlin 26 hard tail for a season. I was told that I make it look tiny. It's really handled the abuses that I've inflicted upon it...very solid bike.

    Friday, I ordered a 2012 XL Raleigh Talus Elite 29er...and I can barely sleep at night. I shopped around a lot and decided on that bike based on the excellent reviews, all of the excellent components and price. Because it's last year's model, I am able to get the Fox fork and Maxle with the Sminano Deore gear set.

    I really don't know much about the tech/specs stuff, but after shopping online and at local bike shops, I learned what to look for and this bike seems to be the best for the money.

    It should be here Friday..I'll keep you posted on how well it works for me

    6' 2" and 260, I've been down in the low 240's when I'm riding a lot. I ride an XL ibis HD, but it's fairly new to me so we shall see how it holds up. I ride aggressively but like to think I'm smooth for my heft. My last ride was a trek scratch and I had multiple swing arm failures within the 3 years I had the bike, to it's credit it rode excellently when it wasn't broken, but replacing a swing arm two or three times a year gets old.

    6'2" and ~255-260#. Riding a 2003 Specialized Enduro with the rear suspension PUSHed out to ~148mm.

    But, I've got a dilemma. I'm realizing size large frame is probably too small for me, so I'm debating between just a longer stem or new frame. If I stick with my current frame, I'm thinking of getting a stiffer fork. With a new frame, I could get a tapered steerer.

    So, it boils down to either a tapered Fox 34 w/ 15mm axle and 150mm travel or straight Fox 36 w/ 20mm axle and 150mm travel.

    I'm not looking to do any crazy drops or anything, just the occasional all day epic. Any thoughts or ideas?

    Thanks!

    6'4" 230

    Last season was my first season on actual trails in the mountains and not just riding around town. I fell in love with mountain biking, but my 21.5" Gary Fisher Marlin seemed very small and awkward under me...I saw people on the 29ers and was always jealous....

    After a ton of shopping here in town, I decided on this. Brand new 2012 XL Raleigh Talus Elite 29. It has a Fox Float fork with a beefier through axle and shimano deore setup...it seems very sweet. I ordered it last week and just picked it up today..as soon as I'm done with this post, I'm going to find some trails that aren't covered in snow!

    I'll let you all know how this does under my tall torso and fairly heavy body.

    Also, ordered size 52 Shimano M087 shoes and it will be my first clipless setup. I have no idea if the shoes will even fit, but again, I'll keep ya posted
