    Or a Surly Ogre 24" frame with a longer than average seatpost, steerer tube and stem. Maybe even consider a layback seatpost. Still not an ideal fit, but much better than an ancient 21" bike. Much stronger as well.

    17 and 1/3 of a Stone (0,11 Metric Tons - 242 pounds) at 6'.
    Riding mostly old (classic) cromo rigs and a '94 Kona Titanium Hei Hei when the weather gets ugly!



    Hubs are Paul W.O.R.D., DT Hügi high flange and Goldtec in 32 or 36 Hole configurations.
    Rims mostly narrow 22-24mm. With DT Alpine spokes and brass nipples.
    Except for a Flite back in the days a cook bros. E-Crank and several rims I haven't wrecked too much.

    And since I grew up on 26ers, I won't switch to a 29er anytime soon (can't stand the modern looks)...!

    Cheers
    Dan

    I can not believe I found a place I fit in! I'm 6'4" about 260. I am very new to this, and looking for advice on what bike to purchase, and additional equipment needed. I hope I can get into this 100%! I quit drinking about 6 months ago, and quit smoking at the start of the year. I have lost around 60 lbs in the last year and feeling great! I'm trying to drop another 40 lbs by the end of the year.

    6'7" and 255, down from 270 in December when I got back on the bike after a 10 year hiatus. Hopefully the bike holds up until I can get back down to 220-230 or so! So far so good!

    2012 Trek Mamba... just got done with a rad downhill ... stoked to the moon and back in this one!

    I'm 6'5, approximately 390 lbs, hope lose a good chunk of that in the coming months. Riding a 2012 GT Karakoram, frame holding good for now, components are taking a beating though.

    6'3 230 and I ride a 2011 Enduro XL and a 21" Mary SS.

    I started looking here mostly for riding gear. Most of my stuff is too short, the back rides up, or the sleeves are too short.

    First Post! Hello all you big people! I am 5'11" and weigh 283 (previously 314... lost all weight lifting). Have not mountain biked in about 4 years, and just recently got back in to it. The bike I chose for this adventure is a 2013 Scott Aspect 940 (29er). I swapped out the seat and hand grips, replaced the tires with a pair of Maxxis Ardents, and switched the pedals to a set of Look S-Tracks. So far I am enjoying it immensely.

    New clyde checking in!

    6'3" 215 pluggin around on a Motobecane 500HT. Bone stock! For now, as the mod bug tends to bite me really, really hard in whatever hobby I pick up. Whether it be skateboarding, to paintball, to my car, to bikes I'll find a way to dump money into it haha. I figured biking would be a less expensive hobby than my car (we'll see) and more rewarding/fun!

    I also picked up mountain biking after "quitting" ( aka getting cut) from the baseball team. Figured I was becoming a little to hefty around the middle so I started throwing the weights around and picked up biking! I'm not too stellar at either, but working at it . Plus the gf likes it, so it all works out for everyone lol.

    Just went out for my first ride today, took a few spills, both the bike and the motor need a bit of a tune up and I think it'll get better from here. Man, biking is quite the workout! I'm not sure if I realized what I got myself into... and I can't wait to get further into it!

    If there are any other clydes in the Bethlehem, PA area, feel free to shoot me a PM. I could use a riding partner

    My first post here. it is nice to find a place I fit in. I am 38 years old, 6'0", and currently at 245. Started getting more active about 2 years ago and down from 305. Hoping to buckle down and make it to 220 by June.

    Currently riding a 2007 Raleigh Mohave 5.0 that I bought new long ago. Will be upgrading to a StumpJumper FSR Comp 29 this week and I am very excited!

    A bit on the short side of the group here at only 5'10'' but tipping the scales at almost 250lbs. My current ride is an '04 Monocog 26'er.

    Not sure if I qualify as a clyde but im heavy (mostly muscle with a little bit of a gut) for my height-just under 5'8" and 215# naked 225 geared up. I ride a santa cruz butcher (fully coiled and 160 mm fork) and a transition blindside for more dh stuff; but i dont get too gnarly. honestly at my weight the blindside almost just feels like a heavy duty AM bike to me. Ive broken several 6" "AM" bikes; on trails with any kind of decent drops/jumps I grab the Blindside because im irrationally afraid of cracking my butcher if it gets too much airtime. And i love the Butcher i want it to last as long as possible. Im trying to lighten up a little I could probably lose about 15# of fat.

    Getting back into cycling after a break of about 13 years (aside from a brief adventure with a mis-sized Trek that didn't last long). I am 6'4" and about 385 currently. I recently bought a Raleigh Talus 29 Sport. So far the only modification from stock is putting Shimano clipless pedals on it. Used to have Ritchey clipless on my old bike and don't want to go back to anything else. Lower end components, I know, but I had a good relationship with the shop where I bought it that I am looking to continue. The owner of the shop and I talked a great deal about what I was going to get, and I landed on this bike. I figured that this was as good a way to get back into as any.

    Haven't had a lot of chance to ride yet due to the weather, but I am planning on getting back into it. Immediate goals are to get to where I can ride the 10 mile journey to the office once a week. The riding is in addition to bi-weekly gym trips for strength training.

    Hi all, checking in from Bethlehem, GA. So cool to find this forum just for tall folk, it's sad how excited I am about find this group lol! I am 6'9" currently 293lbs, down from 376lbs 4 months ago. Still got 20-30 more pounds to shed though and want to get it done on a bike! I have never biked before so I am still trying to learn all the acronym's, brand names, and lingo. I got a lot to learn so gonna be spending some time reading in these forums to try and not sound like such a noob. I got a 2013 Trek Cobia 23" as my first bike, so far I am happy with it, but it's only been about 2 months so time will tell!

    Hello everyone. New guy here from Central California, Bakersfield to be exact. Boy am I glad that I found this group. I was beginning to think that I was only big guy around that liked to ride. I am currently 41 years old 6' tall and 263lbs. I started out at 275 6 weeks ago. 6 weeks ago, I decided that I was done looking and feeling the way that I did. On that day, I pulled out my 7 year old Schwinn mountain bike and took it for a short 3 mile ride. I was beat. I slowly started increasing the mileage and today rode 14.2 miles, on the road, according to my Runtastic ap. I have logged almost 300 miles in the last 6 weeks. My long term goal is to get back down to about 200 lbs. I have not been that light in about 16 years.

    I used to be big into mountain bikes back in college and rode a Fisher HK2 full rigid. I loved that bike and wish that my parents had not sold it in a garage sale.

    Anyway, tomorrow is my 41st birthday and my wife was feeling sorry for me having to ride that old junker. She gave me the green light to buy myself a new bike for my birthday. I came home with a new Specialized Carve Comp. I LOVE this bike it is so smooth, stable, and fast. I would post a pic, but I don't have 10 posts yet.
