    Had a Surly Cross Check - was totaled in recent accident. Sadly now just a Fuji Crosstown as a backup bike.

    Well, I broke the 100lb mark

    I was 340 lbs June 2010. As of today, I'm 238. I was a size 54, now I'm fitting into a 40. My goal is about 180 - so I still have a way to go.

    Started with a Fuji Crosstown 4.0 comfort bike. I've literally rode the drive train off of it. It is in the shop being overhauled now. I rode the tires bald. I put over 2000 miles on it.

    I broke down and got me a Surly Cross Check last Thursday. I've already put 110 miles on the bike. Never thought I'd spend a grand on a bike. Boy is it a beautiful thing though.

    Thought I'd stop back by and say hi and encourage others to point their bike down the highway and go

    Congrats and keep up the good lifestyle.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    I'm reading a great book that deals with the obesity problem in the US.....The End of Overeating...the problem is partly our genetic history, and how the food industry and resturants exploit it....and partly our poor choices

    What's your cycling routing? What other changes did you make?
