Thanks for all your replies on my other topic “Fat Man Needs Help”.
It’s really humbling to know that there are so many of us proper sized guys and gals out there taking to two wheels without shame!
I’ve now taken some time and I’ve had a look through all the old posts and there’s some real gold dust out there, all of which I’m taking on board (and for which I thank you!). However there doesn’t seem to be a definitive guide on specific makes and models – no doubt because everyone’s got their own opinions and different uses for their steel-framed friend.
So how about I humbly ask all you guys to reply to this post and just put:
A) Your starting weight, and
B) Your starting bike
It’d probably be helpful if you also mention any upgrades you made to make it fit for purposes, but that then give me (and anyone else who wants it) a pretty good idea of which makes and models to steer towards.
And if I’ve missed a similar post elsewhere then just shoot me in the head and post a link!
