    Over 6' and/or over 200 pounds. Automatic and it comes from triathlon sports originally.

    Here's the breakdown, per at least forum custom:

    • Clydesdale: Over 200, male
    • Uberclyde: 300+
    • Athena: Female, 150+
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    exas, there is to be NO asking whether or not being a clyde or uberclyde will affect one's male reproductive organs, all right?



    Thanks.

    Yea, but I've been known to pass a skinny minny up hill on occasion. Best feeling ever, at least the first time up the hill.

    I give the big boys props whenever I see them out there. My frequent riding buddy hsa shaved 27lbs off 270 in the past month. Keep it up I say, to all large cyclists

    At 6'3" and 210 pounds I'm a clydesdale. My concern is buying equipment that can handle the weight and torque that I put on it.

    Clydesdale does not automatically equal out of shape - watch some of the Clydesdale triathletes kick ass. It does mean you are a bigger person that places more stress on their equipment...
