    I'm 6'5" with a human-sized torso and extra long legs and arms. With this type of frame I carry my 275lbs pretty well though I am getting into the cycling thing to drop a few. I was looking for a bike frame, wheels, etc that would also support me (hence switching to the Deep Vs).

    No extra charge for the extra large bike (good for me) BUT I am limited in several other areas. First, I'm limited in into the sheer choices of bikes/frames that come in my size. Next, I can't just walk into a LBS to test ride or even buy a bike. I'm just not an off the shelf guy . I ended up test riding several 61's and a couple of 59's hoping that the final bike in the final size works for me (no returns on special orders).

    Im a complete newb as it relates to cycling (and this forum as you can tell). Last bike I had was 20 years ago in college. Did my first real ride this morning 16 miles of flat lands. It all felt great (well my butt was a little sore that last couple of miles). My goal is to get to a point where I can ride a century. Im hoping I can get there.

    Thanks again for the patience with my newbieness. Ive got a lot to learn. Drive side vs non-drive sidewho woulda thunk it!!

    My 2011 Cannondale Super Six 4

    Got this back in October of 2010. It has over 1500 miles on it and I love it. It handles everything I throw at it. I love this bike!

    These bikes look REALLY sharp in person. Nice ride, especially for a beginner.

    Finished upgrading to Rival. First time I've done anything to that extent. Maybe a few things I could clean up still but I just want to ride, and it's raining today .

    Isn't exactly my dream road bike, but it's what I have for the moment. It has been a few years (decades) since I did much road biking. After chasing my 12 yr old on a 50lb Mountain Bike for 25 miles, I decided that if HE was going to be on a road bike (1981 Takara) then I needed something a little more nimble again. Used ($25) 79 Schwinn Le Tour IV (I think...need to post the specs in Vintage...might be a Le Tour), and have been flogging it on a few 25 mile runs and a 35 mile run. Getting it AND me back in shape.

    It's raining so you "can't" ride...Really, you can't ride due to rain? C'mon dude. HTFU and ride your damn bike. It's rained 28 of the last 30 days here in Portland OR and it hasn't stopped folks here from riding.
    If you really want to ride...you just saddle up and ride!

    Your sig says, "I pedal in my sleep", not gettin' in much saddle time that way huh. Better change that to, "I pedal in the rain".

    Lol. I don't get paid to do this therefore I ride for the enjoyment of it. I don't enjoy riding in the rain.
