Hello Fellow Clydesters,
I guess I can call myself an uber Clyde...6'5", up to 385#
Hard to believe that 4 years ago I was 250# and doing 200 miles a week. After losing my job to a back injury, I gradually grew depressed, packed my bike away, and ate and ate and ate.
I now have a good job and can't stand having to buy two airline seats to do the required travel or not being able to find dress clothes big enough or not even being able to run around with my daughter. It's time for a change!
I've been considering getting the lap band but I also wanted to get back into cycling. I've always been a clyde but I remember back to when I first started riding and how great it felt when I accomplished my goals; my first 10 miler, my first 25, first time I averaged over 20 mph, my first century, the first time I dropped people in club rides. I want that again.
I've started to look around for a bike to ride on the road as I doubt my Cervelo Soloist would hold me now. I'm thinking Trek or Kona. Any other ideas for around $1k?
Thanks for all the great posts and support!
