Hi, I'm Idak (Mike) and I'm a Clyde. 20 years ago, I got into cycling and used that to drop from 260 to 210. Changed jobs, decided (Incorrectly) that I had no time to ride/run/swim. After 10 years of computer games, I am 320. I just bought a Felt, with a triple, and my wife will kill me if I spend that much money and don't ride it.
I used to ride 21mm tires. I am so happy I have 25's on the Felt. The bike just wants to run and 25's mean more time riding and less time fixing flats. More comfortable too.
BTW, I am 55 and live near Portland Oregon. Did the Bridge Pedal today with a gang from work.
