    241 lbs down from 275 lbs back in April

    I was drinking too much too often, so I quit all together. I decided I would spend this year's drinking money on a new ride.

    Got a Trek CC and a 2013 Fuel Ex8 closeout. I used some of the savings to upgrade to a SLX crankset.

    Absolutely love the bike.

    Plans to upgrade at 229 lbs and 199 lbs.

    Just started riding in September. Zero bike experience since I got my drivers license, so total noob.
    I currently tip the scales at 325 and 6'1"
    Bought a Specialized Hard Rock 26 as a starter bike and so far so good.

    I'm a big old guy. 6'5 250. Stopped dirt riding when I could not keep up anymore. Still have my Niner EMD. Ride mostly retro schwinns. Enjoy my Cannondale 1FG but I converted it to a geared machine. These old knees suck.
    I like working on bikes, building bikes, modifying bikes.

    I think they need to sub-classify the Clydesdale because it is a matter of reference and scale; I have been told I am big and I don't see it until I am in photos with friends or alleged big athletes e.g., NFL and MLB athletes. Anyway I am about 6ft 1" and float up/down 5lbs to 10lbs depending on workout schedule and diet. However, I have lost weight and down to 265lbs from 285lbs this past May. As I was saying I have felt like a small man compared to some other men I have met, but it is rare that it happens.

    6ft 235! I was 255 about 2 months ago but thanks to taking up mountainbiking again I've lost a few lbs. I grew up riding,surfing and skateboarding but work and partying stopped that about 20 years ago. Now I'm a pool contracter in South Fl. So the last thing I want to go after work is go to the gym. So I started riding a bike instead of the couch. I've been having a blast riding my local trails. I bought a 2013 Mamba but after tacoing the front rim the first time on a trail I upgraded to a Scott 940. The mambas spring Rock Shock would bottom out on deep ruts and jumps. The Fox airshock is waaaayyyy better and hasn't bottomed out once. My local trail Dyer Park is fun but pretty much a beginner trail. They do have a trail that goes around a big hill that use to be the local dump and it kicks my butt with all the elevation changes. You can get goin pretty fast down hill but then theirs a tight turn you have to slow down for so then you lose all your momentum and you gotta pedal your but off all the way back up! Lol I can't wait to make it down south to some real trails!

    6'3" @ 230 down from 255 in September. 2012 Trek Mamba. I'm trying to get down to 205. I race motocross half of the year and figure riding a mountain bike is a good way to train.

    I ride to try and do things that impress on-lookers. JK...I ride to have fun...lose of weight, now that I have gained it, is a mayor reason to go out though.

    Riding a bike, IMHO, and having sex with intelligent women. Are the 2 best things us Homosapiens can do for the betterment of the species.

    And riding a bike helps to get you layed (one way or another).





    (its messed up that if I type ****-sapiens the right way. I get ****'s over ****)

    I am 275 (currently) after being in a knee brace for 6 months. And 6' 1".

    Riding a 29er (CHEAP) HT, with a parts box drivetrain.
    ("Gravity" frame , Deore M530 drivetrain(HG53 chain and cassette), a ready for a "Push" or home rebuild Reba SL, with MTX33s/M525 hubs wheel set).

    Trying to lose weight despite the drinking/drugs/musicfests.

    I started riding to find a form of cardio that didn't bore me to tears.. I quickly realized that I loved riding, and I would look forward to it and squeeze a ride in whenever I could. Bein a little over weight, I mostly ride as a form of exercise.. but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy the hell out of it

    You meet women on bike paths.( In my experiences those women are happier.) Those women appreciate the fact that you are doing something they like. You by the biochemical make up of our species have become more attractive. "Similar interest"

    You pass a women on the street and she sees the effort, or, nice leg muscles. Again, you have become more attractive because of the hunter gatherer/physical power showing aspect. That their evolutionary instincts pick up on.
    "Strong Mate"

    You lose some body fat, gain some muscle size and muscle endurance. Smile more(psychologically shown in long term studies...). And possibly dress a little better, because you can fit more clothing comfortably (self-image and physical dimensions).
    "Strong demeanor"



    Those are some of the ways biking can help to get you layed on the planet Earth.

    6'0" / 285 *ding*
    I ride a Giant Defy road bike and I am picking up my first MTB, a Giant XTC Composite 1, in a couple of weeks. Pretty pumped.

    EDIT: I also have a Trek 7.3 FX that I use as my commuter. It's like a donkey - pretty good at hauling me and my isht back and forth, but not a lot of fun to ride.
