    Clydesdale from Boston

    Hello!

    Another big guy cyclist (6'2" 235lbs). I was a mechanic for 5 years, and now I'm a medical photographer. Loved cycling since I first learned how to ride a bike. Started riding mountain bikes when I was 15 and now I commute to work by bicycle most of the time. I mainly ride SS, tried fixed briefly but didn't catch the bug (debating trying it out again as it's easy with the flip flop hub). I'm between bikes right now. Just got an IRO Mark V frame to replace my Surly Steamroller which was a little small. I have a bad ass scar on my right shoulder from a dooring accident two years ago. Now that I've given anyone that happens to read this way more information than they probably needed about me. Have a great day!
