    SSCX advice for large man

    I couldn't think of what to call myself. Clydesdale is so boring.

    Anyway, I'm 6' 200lbs (eh 210 now with the beer weight of winter). I have broken my new Kona Unit in the following ways: tore the front chainring off, snapped a spindle, cracked the frame (so now I have an even newer Unit), and just torched an I9 hub in 4 months. Needless to say I'm a big guy and I push hard.

    I want, nay, need a CX bike. What do you folks recommend for a big guy who tears stuff apart?
    Don't buy upgrades; ride up grades.
