I'm glad I found this place, I feel I'm the only one over 200lbs at my LBS. I started cycling this summer, picked up a Cervelo R3 with 105. I'm 235-240lbs. This is my natural weight, so I think I'll always be a clyde.
I've put over 500km's so far this summer, my bike has been bomb proof.
I have this attitude to get on my bike and ride. Who cares how fast or long, just at long as you take it out for a spin frequently.
