    Thank you, I will now excuse myself from the clydes category posts... However, I will be in New Orleans this week, eating lots, so you never know.

    Cheers all.

    Hey Herb,these are two wheels that I've built for my bikes. Velocity Deep V's. Heavy but sturdy. I'm not a fast climber so I don't need to wory about lite wheels and speed! [IMG][/IMG]

    Very nice wheels...were they $$? My lbs said they can build me a set but I haven't priced yet..
    I keep think part of the problem is they are a 20/24 set and just can't take my clydeness??? Or they are just really crummy....It seems like I get about 7-8 months each time..so I am coming due again...it will be very interesting to see if I have another failure...luckily..it is alway easy to spot when cleaning...


    So if we do a clyde ride...we can all ride abreast and keep all the skinny rider behind us!

    And dare I say...does this mean we need a BF So*Cal Clyde jersey?

    Ride abreast? That sounds like fun. Would kinda be like a roller derby bike ride!

    The Black rim, I found for $25 on a clearance rack. Bot a DA 9 speed hub at SuperG for $99,$20 for spokes,so was about $175 for the one wheel.......The clearance rack had about 4 more but was before I start3d building my own. Now I wish I had bot all of them.

    Ti grey (bluish) was $70 at a shop. $55 for the Ultegra hub and $20 for spokes.....$145 for wheel

    I've seen links posted that opffer the Deep V for as low as $45 for a rim. Got a hub? and few for spokes and labor, shouldn't be too expensive and will last for a long time.

    I have about 5'000 on the ti grey and never had to true it. Bontrager wheels, anything stock WILL NOT last over 11 months for my big bod!

    Go 32 Deep V in the rear. Front stock rims last maybe 2 years. I have a Race on my Lemond and it's not very sturdy (IMO), looking into building a new one for the front.

    If I were you, I'd worry about the rear first, then the front later when the bux start rollin' in!

    I guess I should chime in one this thread. I'm 6'3" and around 210. I mainly ride the group rides around Pasadena and race crits during the season. If any of you do the Rose Bowl or Montrose rides and see me, say hi. I'm one of the bigger guys out there. I wear a UC Cyclery kit. Here I am taking a pull at one of the 50+ crits I raced this season.

    6'2" 215 and dropping. Must be 180 by the 200k brevet in January. Lofty goal, but obtainable. I'm an OK climber as my 20 mile commute has 1300feet according to the 2005 RAAM route guide. (Downtown SD to Santee).

    I'm about 215 too, but about an inch shorter than you. God, I'd love to get down around 180, but I made 200 my goal. I'm dropping weight slowly, which I guess is good.

    How exactly are you going about your weight loss? (looking for good tips).

    Alright, I suppose I qualify for this thread. This year I started at 6'7" and 220 lbs (ok, 225, but the extra 5 was because I was off the bike for three weeks during the holidays). While I am still 6'7", my weight is now around 205 - 210. On a tough 200k this past Sunday I dropped below 200 for the first time in years. After a day of rehydrating I am back to 205.

    150-200 miles a week, monthly centuries, change in diet. Been hanging out with too many ultra racers. FWIW, if you stop drinking soda, that's a free 10lbs right there. 3500 calories in a lb, start logging what you eat and you'll be amazed. For example, 1 soda and one candy bar a day is 500 calories, just stop those and that's 1lb per week, 7*500=3500. Here's where I get most my miles: http://www.routeslip.com/map.php?map=6896

    Looks like I'm playing catch up. I wish I had an extra 5" to spread the weight over. Michael Wolfe is freakishly tall also about your height and he was at 170 for RAO, not sure where he'll be when we start the 508.

    Oh, for you guys that wonder how to do it, like I said, hang out with the Ultra crowd, do the California Triple Crown (cool jersey), and just pile on the miles.

    That's a lot of miles. Great work!

    I'm going for 500 miles per month. Only got about 410 last month. If there were more hours in a day (or I was faster), I'd up that.

    I don't drink soda (just some diet soda now and then) -- the burritos are the problem! I'm not the greatest when it comes to portion control.

    That said, the weight is coming off. I just gotta pedal my way through the "eating season" -- October, November and December.
