Holy hell I'm no lightweight (built more like you) but I can safely say that's the most diesel guy I've ever seen in a bike race. I think he's commuting to the gym and got lost...

We've got a real beefcake in the local peloton. Surprisingly, he's an incredibly strong rider. He's literally like a huge diesel freight train.

I'll see if I can find some pics.

Strangely enough, that guy was not able to hold my wheel accelerating to bridge in the 3/4 crit at the driveway last week. Go figure.

Lack of funds doesn't always equate to lack of spending.

Because the truly starving college guys aren't racing bikes to begin with?

The guys who have hair like hobbits really get on my nerves. I like the 2nd breakfast standard though

Yeah, all in fun. I'm actually very lucky, Cal Grant has got me pretty much covered for my whole college education (tuition fees). I've got one year left at Cal and I've never had to pay for anything more than books. Good PT/FT job and salary waiting for me when I graduate. I've got it pretty easy, I get to spend whatever is leftover from rent, food, and savings on bikes, reg fees, and gas.

Back on topic...

EDIT: Come to think of it, living in San Francisco my rent is pretty close the average mortgage payment in the US. Go figure, no interest though.
