    We seem to be developing quite a community here!

    It's more or less what I was hoping for when the Clyde forum first opened! Cool!

    Agreed in volumes!

    Maybe we should organize group rides? Too bad I haven't seen anyone else in the group from Nebraska..

    Group rides are a nice idea, but for some of us (myself included), ONE is a group ride!!!

    What a place to learn--6 weeks ago I thought a Shimano Free Hub was the thing at the bottom of a fishing stick---now I know its the thing at the CENTER of a bunch of sticks.

    there is a comedian I saw years ago named George Pidet. A very large man. He did a bit about the first time he went out west and saw a Chinese All-U-Can Eat place.

    The owner approached him eventually, "You go NOW! You eet too mutch. You been heer faw aw'er."

    Painfully funny.

    he has a new show out. It is on Comedy Central. (He's been on Broadway for several years playing a woman in the show Hairspray...)

    I found this website just a couple of days ago and I registered last night. This is my favorite forum on the website because I feel like I fit in here!!! I am 6'2" and 240 lbs. This forum has been very informative for me and I look to post more questions in the coming days and weeks.

    Yeah, the fact of the matter is that most bike stuff is engineered for people that weigh in at 170 lbs. or so. This forum is crucial because it allows those of us who weigh more to share information about what equipment works for larger riders.

    It's also nice to be able to lend support / inspiration to each other as we struggle to control our weight. There are some real success stories here.

    it seems like there are two types of people on this forum: True Clydes, and people who are actively seeking to no longer be a clyde (quitters!).
    At 6'5", I will never NOT be a Clyde; it just isn't healthy for me. I'm proud to be a True Clydesdale!

    Well, at 170cm, I shouldn't be a clyde, but am, currently around 100kg, should be around 75kg or so, it's a group where I don't mind being able to quit....

    Hell, at damn near 400 people guess me 100lbs less than I am. Doc says anything under 200 and there'll be nothing to me. Shooting for 230 by August of '08, when I get hitched.

    a toast to this forum-



    A Toast to your coffin-
    May it be made of the wood from a 100 year old oak.
    And may we plant that tree together, tomorrow.
