I never heard of the term "Clydesdale" for a large sized biker before, it evokes images of power and grace. The image didn't fit me when I was well over 200 lbs. Now I'm around 180. When I was over 200lbs I tried dieting and regular long distance biking and all weather commuting. I even had this nice carbon fiber bike. The flab kept increasing with age. I dumped the car. I dumped the 21lb carbon bike for a 35lb utility bike. The flab melted away. Maybe a coincidence but I think not. Something about being car free seemed to bump up my metabolism. I think other people over on the Living Car Free sub forum have similar stories.
