i think i made a mistake

i should have posted this thred over here in the clyde forum as i do fit the profile (at a bit over 200lbs and 6'1"), and therefore the bike may or may not be ideal, however i do not want to do a full repost. but your opinons are wanted and welcome. http://bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=408011

thanks

Liam

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Seems like a reasonable bike for your purposes

I wouldn't be afraid of riding it

What Tom said, worst case you may find something needs replaced, worn mechanical or you may desire a different saddle(Matter of taste), All of which can be cheap.
