Sexy Clyde Guys Inside: Post pics & lure the Athenas in...

Alright this place is a huge sausage fest. Let's see the pictures the man behind the mask. So where's the pictures? We need to dangle the carrot and get some Athenas in here posting (minus Becky). I mean at least let's do this to get her some friends, a little girl power or something. Keep the pictures reasonable and responsible. No G-String Borat Bikini action in here. Look at this as a way of putting a name with a face.

(on the left) no pun intended MUP humor

This ought to scare the Athenas away! lol



The most recent pic I have. From my last business trip a couple of weeks ago. This was in Duluth and a candid shot by one of the people I was with. I have not one photo of me on the bike. I need to get the wife to take a pic or two.

Excellent! I've been lucky enough to meet bigbossman (and BlankCrows) in person , but as solveg says, it's always nice to put faces to names .

My photo can be found here:

Suggestions for easy/beginner Seattle trails?

I was pretty damp that day!

Thanks - I've done it twice now, and it is spectacular. You'll earn that jersey, though..... it's a pretty tough ride.

Oh boy, you really want to scare the Athena's away don't you haha.


I'm the one on the left with the sunglasses and pompadour wig. My friend Nate and I were the double quarters champs that night.

And since were really trying to scare the Athena's away, here's a pic of me in my Lycra, at the Beast of Iron and Chrome, 2007 dead lifting competition.



That was my best lift of the day, I failed 525 when I lost my balance and broke form. Next time I must remember my lifting shoes, sneakers are not so good for this event.

No kidding. If I tried to deadlift 525, I'd blow out both of my knees for sure. If I could even get it off the ground.

Found this pic from
4 years and 20 lbs ago. Man I gotta get back into shape!

Already got my Athena too!

Pay no mind to the old guy (Chuck5.2 SOCal forum) fast guy! And the homeless guys are my friends. They play photographer when we need one!

That pic's almost ten years out of date. The simpsonizeme.com avatar is closer to reality.
