He also stated that it also depended on WHAT you chose to eat, not just gorging. For some reason, you chose not to post that as part of the quote which was mentioned in my original post.

Absolutely. I'm just saying not everyone is going to get a free saddle from an LBS. In HIS case, they allowed him to swap a factory saddle, but it doesn't work that way everywhere, some of us have...

I've ridden with riders heavier than I am, and this is true. I'm always the slower one down the hill. I've even swapped bicycles with people for descents just to see if the results would change. ...

I have a portable air pump mounted to my bike. I don't think it looks silly at all. Glad it's there, too, because I've needed to use it on a few occasions.
