    I'm 6'5" so I don't imagine I'll ever not be a Clyde. I'll be thrilled to hit 220.

    The only thing you'll destroy on a road bike is the wheels. The older Cannondale CAAD frames are well-known for holding up to bigger riders. I started on my CAAD9 at 412 and haven't had any issues. I...

    I have a set of 36H F/R Deep Vs with White Industries cyclocross hubs. 3 seasons so far and bulletproof. Highest weight was 412 and I'm 290 now and falling. This build was actually lighter than the...

    The Cannondale Synapse is similar to the Roubaix, and beat it out in testing by many magazines - 2014 model. Should be able to get into one with 105 or Rival for around $2000.

    The only problem with lockout forks is they can be damaged by leaving them locked out all the time. The lockout feature is really intended for occasional use, not permanent. You'd be better off...

    A cyclocross bike would be a good option in your situation as well. Salsa Vaya would be a good one to check out and there are others in that same class. If you can find last year's models or older...

    If the bike is set up properly... Bad fit can cause a LOT of knee problems. As can "mashing" pedals instead of spinning.

    18" frame is REALLY small for somebody 6'4", even with a short inseam. That is going to cause all kinds of fit issues everywhere but stand over, which is the LAST thing we should focus on. I'm 6'5"...

    On a positive note

    I'm no longer a "Super Clyde". I went under 300 last week. Weighed in on Thursday at 299.04. I started in September at 412, had surgery October 28, and am under 300 for the first time in 20 years....

    Rough night attempting to sleep... Percocet helps, but it keeps me awake too. This sucks... I keep staring at my bike sitting on the trainer. I'll be on it soon enough.

    If you have the budget for it, your best option may well be a recumbent trike. My wife, my dad and my mom all ride one.

    Amputation today

    Hopefully had my last surgery today and can be back on the bike within a month. I had a severe bone infection in my right foot and had the pinkie toe and 5th metatarsal amputated this afternoon. Pain...

    Aerotechdesigns.com has a few cycling specific jackets. Might be worth looking at. I've found their sizes are true to size.

    You have more options, but you still need 32 spoke (minimum) wheels.

    I use Nuun and Hammer products. Both were approved by the nutritionists at the bariatric center I had surgery through and go to support group at. Don't expect Gatorade type flavor. Very unsweetened....

    It's a 130 +6 degree stem, and a typical setback post. Stems and seat posts are pretty standard adjustments. I'm 6'5" with short legs (32" inseam pants). Short of a full-on custom frame, this is my...

    I recommend a more personal approach. Both of those systems are great, but geared more to power and efficiency than getting overweight people in the most comfortable position on the bike. There's...

    I was over 400 riding a Cannondale road bike. The frame will be fine. Wheels on that bike should be okay too. I'm Going to catch flak for this, but if you have insurance, look into bariatric surgery....

    I doubt you'd have any problems with the CF frame at 260. Wheels may be another story, but you could have a fairly inexpensive set of stronger 32 or 36 spoke wheels built up for $200-$250. A hybrid...
