    Ditto that. I make up for it by replying without reading the posts.

    Yes, although it was actually ten months from balancing to century, not a year.

    Umm, good point. Many of us are determined, but not quite as dedicated as you were, though .

    Still, it shows what can be achieved in a relatively short time.

    I lurk for the inspiration, even though I turned in my clyde badge more than 10 years ago. Currently tipping the scales at about 175 and headed down from there.

    Wow, I'm glad I could coax another post out of you. 10 in a year is pretty stingy.

    First one on C&A. According to the thread title, this is about C&A lurkers, not BF lurkers.

    i am not sure that i am a clyde just yet, at 6'1" and just over 200lbs but i have put on a little over 25lbs in the last 3 years... ...so i guess i am trying to be the anti-clyde. i rode often and hard in college, however the FS does not agree with the sidewalks and bike trails of suburbia. so i have been stalking here and the C&V forum for a while, as well as the commutting forum, gathering information. they are the most interesting and most friendly.

    two side notes:
    i went riding in the woods today for the first time in almost 3.5 years, it felt great.

    i spend countless hours on CL and Ebay looking for a great deal on an older bike as i just fixed up the GF's old world sport and we wanna start riding together

    Welcome!

    You are definitely a clyde. Let us know what you're thinking about in terms of bikes and maybe we can help...or confuse.

    thanks, like i mentioned we (heather and i) just got her old world sport up and running again, and want to go out riding here in the DC area. there is a lot of riding to be done here in the area. i am interested in older steel road bikes, maybe even something like she has, but have not gotten to a place where i can really assess value yet. it has been suggested to me that an older rigid frame MTN bike might be the way to go if i put slicker tires on it and today someone suggested a novara buzz, but i don't know much about them... ...so many choices, so many bikes to ride, so little time.

    i also, over time, am toying with the idea of working up to my 10 mile commute a few times a week. too outta shape right now guess its time to get back on the horse; better start riding again

    Hello

    Hi All!

    So I'm a Clydesdale. Ok, I'll take it. It's a world better than some other things I been called.

    So you Gotta be 200+ lbs to qualify? I could LOSE 200 lbs and still keep the name, I'm a big boy.

    I was going to build me one of them 'two kid bikes side by side with a recumbent center section' quads, but it's one of about a million things I was 'going to do' and I finally said to myself I was going to be a fool to let another summer pass by my window without getting out there and making some NOISE!

    My brand new Lightfoot Magnum arrives Monday or Tuesday.

    Laguna Blue, 2WD, and heavy duty all the way.

    Hey, question. I know the terms say 'no cuss words', but just how careful do I gotta be? I figure them with four letters describing intimate congress, digestive end product, and female canines are covered by this, and I'm fine with that, but what about more soft core terms describing divine disapproval and the destination of said souls?

    Just wondering, and glad to be here,

    RD

    Welcome!

    I spent a couple years in uptown Minneapolis after I graduated from college. Used to run Erik's Bikes Shop in Eden Prairie. The twin cities are a great place to ride so yeah, get that bike up and running ASAP. We need some pics too. I've never seen this bike of yours.

    theological cussing is allowed btw

    Well, I definitely lurk more than I post. I'm usually a pretty quiet guy anyway.
    Well, Yeah. Because that's what cake is FOR.

    Hi Dave! Glad to see you came into the light, and that you picked up a bike at the same time!

    As for your question, trust me, if you get too frisky, one of those nice people with blue stars by their names will write you a polite message requesting your cooperation in not using those terms.

    Considering your bass fishing habits, I would say you are more of a lunker than a lurker, but, whatever .
