    So who are the SOCAL CLYDES?

    I guess I make the list at 230 (currently)! We ought to organize our own climbing ride just for the clydes, forget all those skinny guys!

    I know there is a list in the road cycling forum, but it would be fun to know who the SOCALERS are!

    What's the cut-off, two bills? I'm 189, 5' 10". I know I'll get called a sandbagger, but I'm sticking to the Clyde spirit until jschen's posts don't say "climbing slowpoke".

    Good job man! 230'ish right now but when I plan on doing an organized climbing ride likeThe Bear or just riding GMR more, I go down to 220. Going down from 255 sure makes a big deefrance while climbing GMR or Baldy Rd.!

    Go for it dude!

    I know there is a list in the road cycling forum, but it would be fun to know who the SOCALERS are!

    I am about 212, down from 225-230...
    Have cracked 2 rear wheels in the 18 months I have had my bike! Bontrager Selects...Trek says they should be fine ..if this third one goes..its on to custom built wheels for me I guess...
    I am terrible at climbing...I am hoping dropping some lbs will help...but have also been slowed down by a sesmoidal stress fracture in my left foot..
    I rode my road bike for the 1st time in 3 weeks yesterday...was in Temecula for the weekend, otherwise would have been at the GMR ride....(had to use my mtb/hybrid on the mini metric for cool breeze)
    My friend down there had a neighbor who took me and my riding buddy out (my buddy is not a clyde),he said he rides about 40 miles a week and isn't fast...guess what...a skinny sandbagger...
    These guys dropped me like a hot potato...
    And it was even hotter yesterday than Sat! I was going pretty good till I hit a turn and a sharp rise , downshifted and dropped my chain...ya know what comes next....pavement city....
    I rode another 10-15 miles...but the 105degree heat got to me...not to mention my foot was pretty sore....so for the first time...I had to give up and call for a ride...really sucked....

    So I am one sore 50 year old clyde....but I can whip these skinny guys anyday going downhill! ha!

    Sorry for the long rambling post...but glad to see a socal clyde thread going!!

    cjbruin pointed this out to me. Okay, my posts no longer say "climbing slowpoke".
    If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.
