Ok we can't climb as good but man we can go down a hill fast...lol The club I ride with loves having me around at 6'1" 225lbs I make a great wind tunnel behind me. Others say it looks funny seeing this big guy dragging a line of riders into a headwind at 25km/h there I am grimacing in exertion and all the skinny ones having fun, then I kick it up a notch to make them suffer ha! The club likes having me there for other purposes hardley get any flack at all when I'm around and if they do I just roll up and talk to the idiot myself. Funny when they all expect cyclists to be this scrawny 125lbs guy. Saying all that it would be nice to get up those hills quicker so I'm set on losing 30lbs by summer hope I don't miss all that downhill speed....lol Still at 195-200 I believe I'll still be called a clyde, that's ok the legs can still take me places.
