I'm not a Clydesdale, I'm a rhinoceros, but for some reason the
neighborhood kids call me Bigfoot. I think that's unkind just cuz
I wear size 14s, am 3 foot shoulder to shoulder, and hate to be
It's all about that cursed tooth I found on the beach.
Ever since I've had this strange craving for lichens and new spruce
needles. I mean growing 2 inches past age 50 is plain unnatural.
That's not to mention the unsolicited advances from female sasquatch
while hiking in the the deep forest. It's plum embarrassing what with
me being a married man.
I'm a proud Clydesdale. At 210 I'm the same weight I was in college. Too bad cheap rear bicycle hubs and spokes don't seem to like me much.
I'm around 390 lbs, 6'9", and only 23 years old. I'm not nearly in as bad a shape as I should be at this weight but I haven't seen under 300 in 8 years and I've gone the past 15 being referred to as ******. But I scored a fuji gran tourer for free the other day and it feels good for a fit I don't have an extremely long inseam so I guess that helps. God willing as long as I take it easy and don't go flying off the curbs it should hold out until I can buy some way stronger rims.
New guy here 6'6" 240lbs. A little back ground about six years ago I went to the doctor and stepped on the scale. I was surprised to see 265 staring me in the face. I started working out and got down around 210 (even dropped under 200 for a BJJ competition). Fast forward to today I'm back up around 240 and really out of shape. This is partly because I moved away from my active friends who would get me out the door doing stuff. My goal is to consistently use my bike for a majority of commuting, build the capacity to ride 50 miles continuous, and lose at least 20 lbs by December.
I'll be officially joining this group by next spring as I'm currently on bedrest following a broken femur. I'm 6'1" and usually at ~185. Do I get a temp pass here even though I've been bending frames and wheels, snapping handlebars and trashing bearings with ease at *only 185?
If you are bending frames at 185# I can only imagine how you broke your femur.

Mavic 28/24 wheels on the Allez, Fulcrum 24/20s on the Roubaix (full Alex 32s on the Sirrus). Riding with quality stuff to begin with (mostly original Specialized/Shimano equipment). Is it just because of good components there have been no major issues or am I just lucky?

So if it is 6'0" OR 200 lbs, I am a Clydesdale. But I ain't fat!
No, you're a workhorse.

I take that nomenclature with love. I've always been a big guy.
