I have been lurking around this site for a a couple of weeks now but felt it is time to join. I'm 6'3" and weight about 375lbs. I have been cycling for close to 20 years but also played football, basketball and other sports like snowboarding and golf. about 4 years ago I have a reaction with some penicillin and I was put on prednzone and my weight shot up 50lbs in 7 weeks (damn steroid). I haven't been able to drop this excess weight and I now I'm in trouble. I have type diabetes but it is managed but I need to loose this weight. I am fairly active during the summer, riding in the Beaconsfield cycling club in Montreal and doing about 120 to 150 km a week.
I am just happy I have been able to find a place where i can talk to people who understand what I am going through. I have 2 bikes: a customer Steel True North (www.truenorthcycles.com) with Campy Veloce and a custom Guru Veloci'ti (www.gurubikes.com) with Shimano 105. These are my babies and they both ride great. I look forward to gaining useful knowledge and insight from this forum. I will post some pics of my wheels when I can get my camara working again.
