I guess i am considered a "clydesdale" (well i do whinny like a horse....just kidding that was creepy sorry)
ANYWHO, as the title suggest, i am 6'2 and 225....i wouldn't say im fat, just a "big boy"
anywho again, i have in possession a VITUS 979 road frame from the 80's.
are you familiar with them? like, REAL familiar? road one? have one? are you alive?
i guess you would be if posting here. unless you are a "ghost in the machine"
reason being, these are basically one of the first and definitely most popular aluminum road frames of the 80s. i love the looks of them. but apparently they are bonded aluminum...aluminum tubes bonded into aluminum lugs. and thusly, i have heard stories of them breaking (no bueno)
although, when it comes to horror stories and bike stuff (ie. carbon wheels/frames breaking) i believe allot of it is not par for course but one in a blue moon instance being blown out of proportion thru the webernets.
sooo perhaps i could hear stories of fellow big people who actually ride/have ridden one of these frames.
btw here is what they look like:
