    I ride a CAAD10. I was over 300lbs when I got it. I'm about 260lbs now. Never had any issues with the bike, but I did build better wheels after breaking a few spokes.

    I thought the food was pretty standard. The turkey wraps were alright. I'd have liked more bagels or sandwich options though. And they did kind of skimp on the Cliff bars with handing out the...

    I'm pretty new to the sport, but I've really been digging it the last year or so. I'm horrible and I usually don't bother keeping score and I lose about 10 balls over 18 holes, but it's fun!

    More power to you if you can get away with it. Personally, I was riding some low spoke wheels and they were fine for about 2000 miles. Then I started breaking spokes left and right.

    If you like vintage bikes, by all means continue with what you've got. But don't be afraid of new bikes because of your weight. I was 330lbs when I started riding my Cannondale CAAD10. I had a few...

    My first road bike was a Cannondale CAAD9. At the time I was about 340lbs. It's a little more towards the "race" side geometry wise, but I liked it. I liked it so much in fact I decided to bump it...

    Wait, so you're saying it's a cooler story if I fail? Nah, not my style. I may very well be in last place and the finish line may have closed up shop hours beforehand, but I will cross that finish...

    I'm fortunate enough to live in an area where the average 20 mile ride has about 2000' of climbing and there are several extended climbs around here that are several miles of around 5-6% grade. My...

    But I got selected in the lottery to ride the RAMROD for 2014! It's the Ride Around Mount Rainier One Day. 150 miles and over 10,000 feet of climbing :eek:

    I'm a little intimidated, especially...
