Hi! Found this forum and am intrigued by how many Clyde's ride! I've been 6'4" forever, even while in the Marines weighed 220, so this is all I know... I'm currently 260, and got back into biking this year after a 10 year hiatus. Life and 3 kids will do that to ya. I always rode treks, my old Antelope held up for 8 years before my bro wrecked it. I now own a Trek marlin (29er) and love it. It's a 2012 size 21, I bought this May, and have 900 miles on it as of today. Its the first bike I've been on that didn't make me feel 5 sizes too big for it. My goal is 1000 miles before the new year, and it's supposed to be a blizzard here this week, so I need to cram! I get around for work and bring the bike with me on most trips, have ridden the riverfront in st louis, singletrack in Columbus, and all over WI. Long term i want a better fork (want the g2) and to drop about 25 pounds. I do about 80% on road, and do all my own maintenance. I enjoy all the posts here and hope to someday join in a group ride. Finding this Clyde forum and activity was motivating! happy holidays all!
