    I totally forgot to contribute to this thread!

    Here’s my weight loss bike! It’s my carbon Trek Emonda SL6. I found out that Emonda is a French derivative for “slimming down” which describes my efforts on the bike. Plus the Emonda is one of the lighter road bike models on the market.



    Here are my other 3 bikes: the PBJ, Sentinel, and Scout!

    Stripped the Torrent and rebuilt the Release 3...as a plus bike. Rolling on 2.8/2.6 WTB Vigilantes. So far so good!

    Haha... I get it, I've been there man, Bought a lot of bikes I thought that I needed. But now I'm at the point of selling a couple bikes that are overlap and it is tough. But trust me, my Nomad and 5010 were 'fun' at the DH park, but a real DH bike is on a whole other level if you're into the DH parks more than just a couple times a year. Super fun and i feel I'm addicted to DH at the moment. Honestly I wish I would have made this purchase years ago, cause it's so much fun!!

    I actually have my Sentinel up for sale. I don't want to sell it but if I want AC in my house, I gotta do something. We will see what happens. My Sentinel is damn near a DH bike as it is lol! I'm not in a rush to see it go. My next bike could be a used DH bike. I found quite a few 2010-2012 Trek Sessions and Specialized Demo 8s in my area for $1k so that may be on my list if the Sentinel does disappear.

    XXL Fuel Ex Clyde Style

    I am 6'5" and 220 lbs...

    Started with a 2017 Trek EX 5 XXl. Went with the 5 because it was the same price as a frame only option - something for others to consider. Almost nothing stock except for frame, shock, and stem.

    Build
    30mm Riser Bar
    20mm Stem Spacers
    140mm Suntour Auron Fork (as a+10mm a2c than most forks - so fits closer to a 150mm)
    All of these changes added about 60mm of stack to the bike. I am fairly fond of position.

    RS Deluxe shock. Also have (pictured) the Fox Re:Active shock - but was just meh on that. The Deluxe with volume spacers has better lock-out and plushness.

    Duroc 40 wheelset with a replaced hub (toasted 3 warrantied sun hubs). Running XR4 2.6 front (16 psi) and Rekon 2.6 rear (21 psi) (just so so on the rekon will go with another bonti XR2 or XR4 on rear soon).

    Deore M6000 brakes

    180mm xt cranks

    Pro Koryak 125mm dropper (would prefer 150mm but the dropper does was great).

    I ride in the low position and with increased fork length, this bike sits somewhere near 66.5 degree HTA, but a pretty slack STA).

    All in all I like this bike and it is the best fit of any bike I have ever owned. It is certainly not the fastest (up or down) or nimbleness but it does stay planted and is stable.

    I would like to try another big bike with steeper STA and little longer reach, but they are pretty much non-existent. I would also like to stay with a trail bike, not a huge enduro bike.

    So far it has held up. I have broken three previous frames (2008 Niner Rip9, 2011 Salsa Big Mama, and a 2017 Jet9). I figure I will break this at some point and hope Trek stands behind...

    Cheers.

    Curious. How did you break your Jet 9 and what part of the frame?

    When I bought this bike, I was coming from a L size, and felt the reach too long. Changed the stem from 50 to 40 mm until I got used to it, then changed back to 50. But 60 wouldn't be out of place of you have long torso and arms.

    Not sure if I posted this before, but...

    2019 Kona Honzo ST

    Built it as bomb proof as I could...

    SRAM GX Eagle
    Cane Creek Forty Headset
    WTB Asym I35 rims/DT Swiss 350 Hubs
    Shimano XT M8000 Brakes with 180mm Ice-Tech Rotors
    Rockshox Pike RCT3 120mm
    Maxxis Minion DHF 2.5WT Front (tubeless)
    Maxxis Aggressor 2.5WT Rear (tubeless) (just switched from a 2.3")
    Brand-X Dropper (surprisingly tough considering the price)
    hey, Clyde...let's see your bikes!-honzo.jpg

    Also have a fresh 2019 Surly Wednesday Fatty build, and a New 2020 Salsa Journeyman, but both are too new to have pics yet, or a report on their durability....
    20 Trek Fuel EX 8
    19 Surly Wednesday

    Most new frames use the same size seat tubes so that short guys can ride a Couple sizes up. Just for fun! Sorta!

    Fuse 27.5+ is my main squeeze. I'm 6'1 and 340 right now and this handles me and all I throw at it. Pike up front, SLX brakes with ICE rotors, BOX 2 drive train and KS Lev dropper post, Stans Barons wheelset.
    hey, Clyde...let's see your bikes!-7249ef01-c326-4cec-bf66-6b25080edaaa.jpg

    The semi retired Santa Cruz Tallboy 2
    Rode her for 4 years before getting a new bike. Put a lot of time in the saddle. Everything is stock minus the Box 2 drive train here as well and the Stans Flow EX wheelset. I got a hard tail because at my weight...you gotta put so much damn air in the frame shock it nearly negates having a FS bike. May eventually get another one once I'm closer to my goal weight of 240 but even then...may just get a faster hard tail.

    My brand new, long awaited Scott Genius 940 XL
    This week I will go tubeless and replace factory 780mm, 12mm rise bars with 800mm and 30mm rise. I will also swap Syncros Twinloc-integrated grips with Egron GA2 Fat for better ergonomy.

    Good stuff man. Those Konas can take a beating. My brother was 260 a few years back and had a Kona Hoss and he'd even jump with that thing.

    Thanks! Yeah, I have a way to go before I see sub 300, but I am super happy with the Kona so far. Been a long time, too long.

    My Full suspension GT Sensor Xl, and my out and about bike (Trek) Klein Attitude, set up as 650b with strong carbon wheels, magura 4 pot brakes, and a riser loop bar on a rising stem. Upright sitting position, but extreme pedalling efficient. Love it.

    Just got back in the saddle in March 2020 when I bought a 2019 Specialized Fuse Comp 27.5. I was 5”10” 240 when I got it

    A few months later and I’m still 5’10” but now I’m 220.
