Yes I have joined the ranks of you guys/gals again. I used to ride a Soma mountain bike that I made like a messenger bike. I am 6'7'' 310lbs, I just started to get back into jogging and need something to crosstrain with. I am just a big guy all around. When I was in the military and played college basketball I was weighing around 285lbs so I was never really a small guy.
But I just ordered a MOTOBECANE RECORD in 64cm. My brother who is a Clyd also told me about them, and said that I should get one, since I was looking for a bike not too long ago, and I told him to keep an eye out for me, can't beat the price. I know I will have to upgrade the wheels really soon, but for the price.
I was looking at the Spec Sequoia but that would have been a few more favors to Santa, lol.
I am trying to train for half-marathon or there abouts, I Hash with a great group of people that all are into trail running and what not, I did my first 5mile trail run with those guys and in the last month did another 5mile road race and 2x 5k, and my 5k time went down by a minute, 30:30 so far, just going to keep getting faster and faster.
You guys/gals are what life is about, lets get out there and ride. And if anyone is in the RTP area and need a riding partner just give me a shout.
