    Can I get a ruling here? (Am I a Clyde?)

    I only go (as of this morning) 183 lbs. That's down from 188 a couple of months back, progress is slow. It may not sound like much weight but I'm pretty vertically challenged. I'm 5'4" with a BMI of 31.4. I feel pretty Clyde like at this point.

    Currently riding a Kilo TT pro (for sale locally), a 1991 Marin Bear Valley Mtn bike and am building a Surly LHT.

    While you may not fit the 'weight rule', you'll surely share most of the other concerns, IMHO.

    Well, since I am a "Uber-Clyde" why don't we call you a "Mini-Clyde"??

    IMHO, if you feel like a Clyde, you are a Clyde.
