    Okay, I can totally relate to this... Yes, it is very hard for us bigger folk--but they are not impossible. The fact that you're contemplating it already shows a tendency towards victory over them...

    BeachGrad et al, I'm 90% in. I might have either my wife or my daughter with me (both of whom can presumably climb better than me, so no, I can't use them as an excuse to stop... lol). I'm looking...

    That's a decent bike, but be prepared to buy a new seat post at some point soon--those suspension posts don't last very long at Clyde weights. Ask the bike shop to properly tension the spokes...

    I love steel and ti bikes (De Rosa, Merckx, and have had a number of Merlins and Serottas)--I now have a ti Carbon bike (Seven ID8), an aluminum bike (Klein Pro) and a Carbon bike (Element Six frame...

    Thanks, Mark! It was a great ride, and there's no way I would have made it without the gentle encouragement from TrojanHorse, PhotoJoe, Huffin, and BeachGrad. They were all awesome, with the way...
