    Lost weight, Lousy Ride.

    Ok, not lousy but not as comfortable.

    I've slowly gone from a full fledged clyde weighing 238 to 185 lbs. (No great kudos please, I this is my normal weight, I was not a heavy guy, struggling with weight issues all my life)

    Maybe I got used to the flex under my heavier weight on my Titanium frame. Now the ride seems harsh to me.

    The pay off is definitely there on the hills. But on the flats, these city streets, I am getting jolted by every crack and crevice.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    Maybe you should test drive some new bikes to see if its just a bike thing now. It could be that the bike you have is now less comfortable under less weight.
