Roll Call: How bigga boy are ya? What bike do you ride?
Here's me, 225lbs buck naked after my mornin' constitutional (simmer down, not in the photo):
Here's my last bike:
Bigger than you........
......but smaller than some I'm sure. 6'2" tipping the scales at 245#, down from 270# in October thanks to the SBD. I won't scare you all with a photo of myself. Glad to see I'm not the only Cyde manly, or is it stupid enough to ride SS! I ride a KHS Solo-One with Avid mech disc up front on a Marzocchi MX PRO ETA fork and eggbeaters. It replaced My Redline that was cool but too small. I also sometimes double boing on my Trek Liquid 20 which I had to modify some for my weight with a Marzocchi Z1 FR SL and some other cool upgrades because I wanted to be different mostly.
Nice bikes, did you actually build the Ti frame or custom order it and spec it yourself?
At the moment I weigh 240 and here are my rides...........
03' Big Hit Ex with Boxxer (soon to be an 03 Monster T)
04' Iron Horse Triumph upgraded w/ Ultegra Cranks, Shim 520 pedals.
6'4" and 225lb riding a big ass Gemini. Here is a pic.
Six foot, 220
Just noticed this forum and what a nice surprize it is!
I ride a custom steel SS.
Just built a SC Chameleon freeride/XC hardtail that will be my hooligan bike.
Have a carbon Look KG281 road bike.
The real question for this forum is:
What parts don't you break?
6'1" / 220 lbs..............:D
My bikes (minus my SS which I don't have a pic for yet)
Wow...a forum just for us! Sweeet.
I'm 6'5" and currently 238.
Runnin' a Sofa King Ti King Pin 26" wheeler...SS 'natch.
Roadie is Giant TCR-1.
Commuter old Specialized Stumpy 1X7.
5'11" and 213 lbs ...
... usually i just round up to 215, but as i'm trying to get down to 200, now every pound counts, y'know?
i can't be bothered to post pics of my bikes, as i really should be doing something else right now, but they are (in no particular order):
- cannondale 'cross as my road bike/ commuter (older, basic model: no headshok or discs)
- brodie kinetic (al hardtail), newly converted to ss
- planet x new jack flash - latest addition, is a "learn to do trials/play bike"
and i gotta say, as crazy as ss is even for we 'entry level' clydes, trying to do trials tricks (or at least trying to learn them) seems just as ridiculous to my battered bod. besides the heavy breathing aspect, i haven't looked this beat up since football back in school.
Not feeling so big now
5'10 210ish, on my way down I hope.
Here is the X5 in it's current state. Wheels, headset, seatclamp for sale in classifieds and ebay... they are new.
6'2" and 265lbs (hopefully can get back down to 235lbs soon). Will post photo's as soon as the kid across the street shows me how.
PW#10 PISSOFF fox F100X XTR(will ride the most soon)
Seven Duo fox vanilla 125 RLC XTR
Seven CX Dura ace(ride the most at the moment)
Seven Tri Dura ace
Seven S8 road Dura ace
Spot SS XT
6'5", 215.... I'll let you know when I drop out of clydesdale in mid summer.
6', 225#, down from 280# in Oct...
6'2" and 260lbs. Right now ridin a Homegrown HT, hopefully new Chamuco soon.

I'm 5'11" and about 205. am i bordering on normal? Anyway, what i lack in weight i make up for in bad lines and poor form. currently riding a K2 evo with a stratos helix rear and EXR front, Spec. Enduro with a helix rear and Z3 front and a K2 attack with a noleen rear and marz frankenfork front as a commuter. I could loose 25lbs and dress in spandex, but then i have no goals in life. better to keep the weight as have something to strive for.
5'7" and 355
I'm the shortest / biggest so far.
I ride a Gary Fisher OCLV frame with a bombproof Chris King / Rhyno Lite / straight guage / brass nipple wheelset. A Fox TerraLogic fork is up front, and the drivetrain is XTR. I've got an Avid mechanical disk up front and Avid Single Digit rear V's.
I'll post photos later today.
I've been working on a Clydesdale website for a bit, as well. The MTBR forum will probably see a lot more traffic. :)
Another short guy
I am 5'8", and around 215# right now, down from 240# last Thanksgiving (here in the USA). I mainly ride my singlespeed now, but I also own a 2000 Ellsworth Truth, a Kona Jake the Snake, and a Indy Fab Crown Jewel, and a Giant TCR converted to fixie/single soon. Here is a pic of me on my old surly.
and a pic of my new bike, 2004 ExploSSif frame from Kona. 2001 Crossmax Disc, XTR cranks with Jericho ring, Shimano BMX cog, 2001 X-fly, Hayes Mag Plus (ooh!! carbon levers, ooh!!), and big Geax tires. I have since switched to a rigid post, maybe after watching my QQQQ teammate xrmattaz kick my but with out any suspension, but I won't give up the forks.
I think with Matt and myself, along with LakeRaven and Ken in KC, we might have had the only SS Clydesdale team at the 24 Hours of the Old Pueblo. That would me we would have come in first if they made a category for us.
6' and weighing in at #235. Hopefully that will change a bit once the weather gets a bit nicer here. Rode a 97 Fisher Kaitai until the end of last season. With the blessing from the wife, I'm in the process of building an Airborne Black Widow. Can't wait to finish it up and take it out for the maiden voyage.
Looks like I am about average???
6'2' and 245.
Schwinn Moab 1 w/ no stock parts, hopefully upgrading soon. Also working on a Moab 2 SS for the last year, as you can see from the time I have taken to put it together I am not in a big hurry to induce that kinda pain.
Hopefully i'll make it back down to 200-205 once i can start riding 3x per week. I was up to 235 last year before going on the South Beach diet and riding my @ss off (literally).
My ride (had it for a month and love it):
Here are my Rides and pict of me and my better half after a half-century. I am 6' and 225, hopefully in a few months I will be 199 and not a Clyde (only been saying that for 1 year). Unlike some guys, I don't seem to break stuff. I must not ride agressively enough or I'm just smooth.
