    My road bike, and sadly it's been getting far more use than my MTB because of all the rain I've been getting around here.

    Here is an updated shot after installing some upgrades today. Not really too obvious but she is sporting new wheels/hubs, brakes, seat and post, stem, and brake levers.

    Mine... nothing special, but it's still a better bike than I am a rider!



    Added a chainstay protector, ergon grips, and a new saddle since this pic.

    Vintage… both me and the bike. Me - 40 years, 6’2”, 250lb, the bike – 1990 GT K2. I bought the bike new back in college, rode it on and off, but this year the bike (and I) have been seeing the most serious mountain action yet.

    Here is a pic from a few weeks back at Canfield MT. CdA Idaho

    My Upgraded DB Coil EX: 6 ft. 3 in. / 225 Lbs

    I am relatively new to MTBing. Age: 59, Height: 6 foot, 3 inches, Weight 225 pounds -- an old clyde!

    I bought my 2007 Diamondback Coil EX as a starter MTB. Found that I love trail riding -- so some upgrades were in order:

    - XTR rear derailleur / SLX front derailleur
    - Hollowtech II type crank / external bearing BB
    - SRAM chain / cassette
    - BB7 brakes front / rear
    - Rockshox Recon 351 U-Turn fork

    Since I ride on the roads early mornings as well as the trails (live about a mile from Itusi trail in NC), I have an LED headlamp, taillamp, mirror, GPS, bell -- and the spoke reflectors -- all to try and keep the cars from turning me into roadkill!

    The DB frame is very strong and the seat very soft -- handlebars are comfortable where I have them set -- really high. It is a heavy bike -- and I added a couple of security cables and a toolkit to the saddlebag just to make sure I would always get a good workout.

    I do all my own work and have tools, stand, bulk XTR cables and housings, etc.

    See you all on the trails! 73 de Ken - N4OI

    Here is my new bike... since I broke the one that I posted early in the thread.

    2010 Spec Pitch Comp (large)... stock except a BBG bashgaurd. Love the bike, no issues at all with it. It took me on some fun downhill on vacation in PA and all the singletrack I can handle here in KY!

    I'm 6'1 about 250 in this pic... don't have any of just the bike.
    EAT, DRINK, AND BE MERRY... FOR TOMORROW WE DIE.

    The above picture is actually right after I got the bike, so it is a bit old. I will try to put something new up this weekend, might be able to catch some of the battle scars over the months in the new picture, haha.

    First post. Great site!
    6' 2" - 240lbs

    Here's mine..

    '05 Stumpjumper FSR Expert Disc 120 size "XL"
    Bought this for a steal! $600 from a relative that rode it once! After a little initial tweaking it's starting to fit me fine. I need to do a BETD Suspension Link change out on it as the hollowlink is cracked but it's on the way! Finally a bike that fits me!!

    My new ride since I said goodbye to my Rockhopper 29er. I'm 6'2" and 215lbs. Eventually it will get a new fork and 650b front, but for now I'm enjoying it just fine stock.

    Hey jimb,

    Those aren't bad bikes but I'd say you and Jake could use some 29ers.

    Thanks Malibu, I know what ya mean.

    One of the guys I ride with has a 2010 Spec rockhopper comp 29er (same as mine but in 29er) here is a pic and that light colored bike is another freind of mines, its a 2010 Spec hardrock sport disc 29er he is gonna trade me for some paint work on his motorcycle. He went and got a Stumpjumper FSR expert. The guys at Concho bike shop in San Angelo just LOVE us.

    Im gonna have three bikes soon and one will probably get the 69er treatment or maybe a 700c wheel set for a pavement bike.

    My son Jake bought one of those Schwinn trailways bikes from Target, I must say its not bad for $200, he uses it for commuting at the college. I will probably keep one for him to "borrow".

    Sorry it took so long to get back to you. So far it's the best bike I've owned. Not the lightest by far but it is the best climbing and it handles like a dream. This bike made me want to ride every day again.

    6'1" 235 now. Finally got off my ass and got a 29er about a month ago. I started out at 245 but weighed in at 235 yesterday. I've had a lot of custom bikes and this is the best bike I've ever riden.

    My latest next to creepy animated doll decorations and all: a 21" Dawes Bullseye SS (a Deadeye with BB5s) from Bikes Direct. Installed some flat bars in place of the low rise, a 20 tooth, and have since thrown on some Juicy 5 hydros I had in the parts bin.



    Here's the Bullseye in gears and front squish.

    Quick Word to the Clydes - even though Malibu412 is a riding partner of mine - and a great guy at that... particularly now that he's gotten himself a SS rig to boot, HE IS NOT A CLYDE!!!!

    This guy is about 7'2" of Pure/Insane/Animal on a bike!!!!

    Don't let him fool you!



    Oh, by the way D.W. - Nice SS Ride!

    It's amazing how much that second photo of yours up top reminds me of a place back on the east coast - where I essentially really began my MtB years long ago. Back then it was referred to as the Sour Lands Mountain Reserve. By some long shot of a chance - that wouldn't be where that photo was taken would it?

    Is that P I T A? That would be more like it. Actually A, you would be stretching things a little. Only 6' 8". Definitely a Clyde, though.

    How's the shoulder?

    After breaking the carbon frame from my Top Fuel I decided to go Titanium. This is a full custom Kent Eriksen frame complete with fat boy specific 1" chainstays. It has the wider 31.8mm seatpost and beefier downtube. Shouldn't have any strength issues with this frame. Built this up with Chris King BB, hubs and headset. Rims are Stan's Arches with custom rasta decals. Sram XX on the crankset and rear derr. Front derr is X0 as well as the brakes and shifters. It is somewhat of a reward for losing weight as well as encouragement to continue. I used to be up around 330 which is a lot for 5'7" Down at around 240 shooting for 190.

    I'm using a homemade chain tensioner now that works much better than the Sette one in the last picture I posted.

    The 2010 Specialized lineup was magnificient! Must be nice to own 3 of them I love the FSR XC, but the new 2011 Camber looks promising, I'm planning on getting one...but there's also college coming up to pay for next year sooo..I don't know what I can afford yet. Oh, and nice spill in the video

    HAHA thanks man I do love them the XC has taken a beating and keeps asking for more! I have upgraded the wheels on it though as the stock dt swiss weren't up to par for me. I tend to take a spill each time I go out I tend to push myself but being so damn tall doesn't help lol

    My first mountain bike, Diamond Back Ascent EX... rode it from 1989 until 2008. I converted it into a streetfighter in '97. Took the fenders and slick tires off and sold it. This is the lousy cellphone picture I used to sell it on Craigslist... sometimes miss riding it.

    05 hardrock comp disc, along with my ass. 6', 250 Pounds.





    I'll get some better pics up when I get a chance to take them. This was the first time that I tried using the GoPro for cycling.

    Michelin somethingorother on the rear, kenda dredtread up front. A bunch of stuff has been replaced (grips, cranks, rear cassette a couple times, rear rim) but the stuff I remember is Thomspon seat post, WTB Power V saddle, and Primo Supertenderizer plats. It needs a lot of work though, so stuff will start changing on it soon.

    Update: I had posted my old bike back on page one, but here is a couple shots of my new Stumpjumper FSR Comp 29er. The mountains here are still covered in snow so no heavy duty riding yet but so far it’s a big improvement.

    Update for me too:

    After chasing my riding buddy on his 29er, today I broke the piggy bank and got a new 29er.
    Looks like my son gets an upgrade also, lol.

    2010 Stumpjumper carbon expert 29er HT, went 2bliss with s-works captain dual compound tires, sonoma seat, and I'll be swapping out the pedals with my mallets.
    Cant wait to get it in the trails.

    first post

    so is there a height requirement to be a clyde? 5'10", 260 as i post this. does that make me a Shetland? haha! went for the first ride of the year today, crap im out of shape.

    current rig, 2009 Giant Trance X2. in the shop for a tune and a 203 front rotor.


    really wanting a hardtail again, so ive been contemplating a 29'r. any suggestions for $1000-1200 budget. i ride hard and fast, lots of up, even more down.

    Thanks Heat.

    It climbs good or at least as much as I can climb.

    I might not be the first one to the top of the hill but I'm almost always the first to the bottom.

    As for weight. Your guess is as good as mine. 35 maybe? I built it to not break under my fat ass. So weight wasn't top on the list. I've never checked the weight.

    As they say strong, light, fast...pick two.

    This bike is a tank. 3yrs and it's still stock.

    I don't ride real crazy, but I do frequent palo duro canyon and the local trails. Not a squeak or rattle anywhere.

    Well then, I think your right. I guess I failed that one.

    The thing wasn't light or cheep, but it sure is strong.

    IMG_7456 by Brian Vibert, on Flickr

    2008 Pitch frame that I got as an upgrade to the replacement frame for my cracked RockHopper. The rest of the parts are mostly from my previous 3 bikes. The fork is a little shorter than would have been on there stock, but so far it's working out just fine. Still working on picking out a new wheelset as well. The rear wheel is kind of a frankenstein creation since I wrecked yet another Azonic Outlaw freehub.

    Yes... scary to see someone my size (6'4"; 315# and shrinking now) on a carbon soft tail bike... but I love the bike and it has been okay so far. Good thing for me, the frame is back from when Trek had the lifetime warranty, so if my fat ass breaks it, I won't be SOL. As for specs:

    My 2001 Trek STP200. The upgrades...

    Fork: Rock Shox Judy Race; rebuilt using dual beavy weight springs and 15 weight oil; 63/80mm
    Shifters: Shimano XTR M952 shifter/brake lever combo
    Front Derailleur: Shimano XT M750-E
    Rear Derailleur: Shimano XTR M953 rapid rise
    Pedals: Time ATAC composite body
    Saddle: WTB Speed V
    Handlebars: Easton EA50; low rise; 635mm wide
    Grips: ODI Lock-ons
    Brakeset: Shimano XTR M950 V-brakes
    2018 Santa Cruz Hightower CC
    2014 Trek Domane 4.0
    2015 Surly Karate Monkey Ops (commuter, gravel, fun))

    So, after about a decade out of the saddle and encroaching gut thanks to a desk job and love of beer, I started riding again. Here's my 'old' steed, built up steadily through the early '90's.


    That's a Wheeler 5600 frame (They only sold these for a couple of years in the US) upgraded with Ringle superbubba hubs and mavic 821 rims. Halson Inversion elastomer fork and kewl twisted spokes. "Old" LX drivetrain, 3X8, with a really tiny granny chainring up front. The giant hunk of steel on the seatpost is for Kiddo's Trail-a-bike.

    Wishing for some newer components, I just bought myself an '11 Trek/Fisher Marlin 29'er.


    Bone stock, except I moved over the old Onza clipless pedals from the Wheeler. I'll replace them when the elastomers give out. It's only a bit over a week old, only has about 60 miles on it, but boy, is it a nice ride compared to the Wheeler, which was always a bit small for me.

    Now considering a pair of dirt drops/bar end shifters for the Wheeler, and slicks to make it into a commuter bike. Then again, it's got a certain degree of retro-cool to it as it is (IMO)

    Changing the Litespeed some. Adding a Vicious Cycles fork and just sent frame off to have disc tab added on the rear. Still trying to decide on a heavier built wheelset.

    Noob Question

    I am 38, 6 foot and 270. I went out and bought a Specialized Hardrock Disk with 26 wheels. Is this thing going to hold up under me? I am just getting back into riding after 20 years so the most I will be doing is hopping logs on the local trails. It will be awhile before I start catching much air.

    There's some sweet bikes in this thread

    Here's my oldest a 2001 GF Marlin, not quite in its original configuration. The RS Jett fork was tossed for a Surly Rigid fork and I've put on an XT Crank and swapped out the Alivio junk for Deore, LX and SRAM Attack Shifters. I've ridden this bike on trails in FL, AL, SC, GA, LA, TX and more recently here in CA this photo was at the Marin Headlands a few months back


    Here's my newer blingier bikes
    Mountain Cycle, Zen with just a couple rides on it, just finished the build this winter.

    2010 Kona, Jake The Snake. Built this up last June and have logged 1000 miles on it so far (I know that's a couple months for some guys but I'm working my way up to more miles).

    I would not recommend Velocity Blunt rims for clydesdales. Mine are giving me issues and I will be getting some tougher hoops. I plan on going with Stan's Flow rims.
