    Hello all, first post. 6'2" 220 lbs. In sunny Tampa,FL. Its about 80 right now.

    First bike in probably 20 years. Ordered an Airborne skyhawk. I love to tinker in all my hobbies but I'm resisting the urge until I start riding a little bit. I figured finishing the build would give me an opportunity to really learn about the bike. I did get some Michelin country rocks because most of my riding will be through the neighborhood to start with. But definetly looking to try out some beginner trails soon.

    Enjoying the forum and learning alot, but I definatly have only scratched the surface.

    I'm 6'4" and 260, down from 295. I was riding a Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp but I sold that a couple of years ago. I'm gonna get back into riding, I'm moving to Korea, and looking at buying another Stumpjumper but we'll see.

    I'd really like to read more about it, how does it fit? Ride? Climb? Descend?

    I'm 6'1" 210 lbs. and after a little over a year of riding/racing my Stumpjumper Comp 29er it started to develop a crack in the weld where the drive side seat stay is welded to the seatpost. I have since switched to a Niner Air 9 frame and so far all is well. I do plan to get it welded by an expert and resurrect that frame but I thought I should share that with the group.
    In that same time, however, my riding partner, 5'11" 200 lbs (does not race) broke a Kona Mahuna in half (sheared the top tube and down tube) and sheared the down tube of a Motobecane Fantom 29 Pro. He is currently riding a Performance Access XCL 9er frame.
    So far so good, 2 months in.

    I ride two bikes. My "off road" bike is an old (year unknown, and don't care) USA built Huffy, which I rebuilt from the ground up for a big guy. It was a basketcase when I got it last year. Now, it's probably the toughest POS branded bike in town. If you can go there, chances are it'll go there, and bring you back home.
    My street, and light trail bike is a 1991 Diamondback Override. Keep everything tight, replace the bearings at the first sign of wear, keep 'em greased up, and they'll last forever. Probably the best bike I've ever owned.
    Just sold my 1986 Nishiki Olympic. It was a great street bike, but I never rode it, so it had to go. I'm not the type to keep a bike around for nostalgia's sake, or the type to buy something that costs too much to ride hell out of.
    I was a BMXer back in the 70s and 80s. When I got back into cycling, it made more sense to go with a bike that had a big, strong frame. Hello MTB, and hello hybrid.

    6'2 290 here. This last year has been really bad for me as far as my health and fitness. I am normally around 225 but just dealt with a lot last year and put eexercising on the backburner.

    I have a 26 felt hardtail that I was riding but just bought a specialized fs 29er that I can't wait to go ride.

    Im getting off shift work in 2 weeks and hoping between that and my revitalized interest in both jiu jitsu and riding, I can get back to around 225.

    I'm 6'3" around 265 and I just picked up a 2013 Novaro Ponderosa. I'm really excited about getting back into cycling for the first time since I was in college.

    6'6" barefoot, currently 270lbs. I seem to fluctuate between 240 and 270, depending on the time of year and activity. Holidays are over, so it's time to drop about 30 pounds again.

    I had a 25" Giant Yukon hard-tail I bought in 2004 (I think) that I simply loved. It was huge. Unfortunately, it was stolen last fall and has not been recovered. In the market for a new ride now. So far, people at local bike shops haven't been very helpful. They keep offering me bikes that are too small and explaining that the inch length size isn't really that big of a deal. Everything I've tried has felt small.

    My 25" Giant Yukon fit me perfectly and I want something like it. Info on that is largely what I'm here looking for.

    Seems my Cannondale SL4 hasn't really handled my husky manhood! I've owned this 29er for 8 months and seems like it's just running like crap compared to my old 26er bikes (trek and giant) Just do basic trail desert riding and tired of hitting up bike shop all the time. Checking out Jamis Dragon Sport 29er right now along with some KHS and Specialized hard tail 29ers
