I didn't make it either.
It looks good, but you will learn to hate the wind.
I will be in New York for the weekend, and I was thinking maybe shopping for some cycling shoes for giant bear paws (size 14.5).
Any recommendations for a good bike shop ?
The only embarassing result would be to not do it.
6'3, 375#, just bought a RANS v2 this weekend !!
Love it, and still learning how to start without the wobblies.
Sorry, but no beard. I tried a couple of times to grow one, but by the end of the...
Filzer DB4L, about CAD 14 from MEC
Used it since I restarte biking, in spring 2006.
I have nothing to complain about, does it's job well.
I'll get a second one for my 'bent.
Not always true, I think it is wrong to generalize either way.
Most of the time, the first piece that you're gonna destroy is the rear wheel.
I weigh in at 375 and have commuted all last year on...
I see the Agio rated at 275#, where did you get the 350# from ?
I am in a similar boat, my choices are the RANS Formula 26 HD or the Lightfoot traveler.
I hope this was just staged for the photo and you did not carry your children this way!
Yes, this is the store. Very helpful, nevertheless, does not have any LWB in stock. That's why I have to drive to the bicycle man in Alfred, NY, 800 miles return.
Oh well. I guess this SWB was not my size.
Thanks for all the replies.
If yes, which model do you ride?
I tried a SWB and was definitely for someone 5'8 max.
With all due respect to all the people who ride these, are you guys hobbits ?
I am a big guy, quite tall at 6'3, pretty wide, I wear 32 inseam jeans and size 15 shoes. I am not a giant by any...
My expedition does not have any bar tape, but rather a thick rubber sleeve about 4 inches long that sits on the end of the handlebars.
Thank you all for the excellent answers I received in this thread.
Beyond the shadow of a doubt, a 'bent is what I need.
I am trying a SWB this weekend, from a local store. LWBs are hard to come...
I commute to work in very windy area, with 90% of the time getting headwind on my way back from work.
No hills, the occasional bike path overpass, wonderful setting, along the water, greenery,...
The "sprint braces" are the vertical rods going from the seat to the near end of the frame,right ?
About the seat base, if I disintegrate it, I'm sure i could find a solution.
Saying that Montreal is more bike friendly than other places is a variant of the neighbour's grass is greener.
I'd give Montreal any day for a warmer climate, yes even Toronto. We enjoy 6 months of...
My LBS has a F5 Enduro on sale, and I am tempted.
If I rebuild the rear wheel, is the F5 a good choice for commuting 25-50 km a day (both ways) ?
Or I am going to destroy it at 6'2 and 375# ?
Why not some sort of push blade, made of some strong rubbery material (floor linoleum tile like, or maybe stronger).
I am thinking at something along the lines of a snow plow, but for pushing rocks....
Sorry, I forgot to describe my morphology.
I'm 6'2", 375, going down. Used to shot put and discus in my youth, in the past ten years have been throwing mostly junk food in my mouth, which settled as...
Interesting choice, thanks for the suggestion.
Thanks to all who replied.
Seems to be agreat bike.
How about the Fuji touring? http://www.fujibikes.com/2007/bikes.asp?id=290&subcat=2
Anyone using this bike for commuting ?
This is the bike: http://www2.trekbikes.com/bikes/bike.php?bikeid=1432000&f=6
Is it going to support a 375# uber Clyde ?
Thanks in advance,
Thanks to all for your replies.
I guess it's back to saving for my lightfoot bent then.
