Hello one and all.

I am an old clydesdale from Canada.

Back in the early 1990s I was quite an active mtber, after a few decades of being a slack ass its time to start up again.

Dug out my old steel frame Specialized rockhopper

Time to start living the lifestyle again

Not looking for anything just wanted to say what a nice idea this is


Peace, beer and good pizza

I've not been at my best. Split from my wife of many years has meant I haven't gotten to this. I'll go through PMs and get items out, as well as updating here, shortly.

Evening folks. So I was digging around in a container I have in my garage that has all my cold weather gloves and as I live in Florida, we do not use them a lot. Anyway, while I was matching up the gloves, I discovered that I had put 2 sets of Time ATAC Alium clipless pedals in there and forgotten all about them. I really don't need them and thought if anyone here was looking to start using Clipless pedals, these are fantastic pedals, still work like a champ and I have a set of the 13/17 degree cleats to go with them. These were my first Time Clipless and they are probably 11 or 12 years old, primary used on the road riding, but at some point, I did use them off road. I only use Time pedals as they just work great and have moved to some higher level ATAC's.

I would like to spread the wealth if at all possible, so if the are a couple of you out there, then great, else, if one one person responds and you have a couple of bikes, then they are yours. Just PM me your name and mailing address.

Hey all, so I have a request, does anyone have any hand me down Clyde sized jerseys? My brother wants to get started riding with me, and as he has MAJOR social anxiety and self image issues (he's mild-moderate autistic), I think it would help him get in a better mental state about it if he looks the part. He's done an excellent job losing most of the weight he's gained as he hit his 30's, he was always super slim and then plumped up, so now some cardio and he's going to be in a really good place. I'm getting him set up at my bike shop with some kind of good beginners all round bike so he can do pavement and some light trails with me, will have him set up with padded shorts, gloves, decent shoes, etc etc, I want to make sure he's as comfortable as possible so he'll get the best experience and want to keep going. We both lived on bikes as kids and young adults, so he knows he enjoys riding, I think it'll be a good thing for him. He's currently about a 2x tshirt size, but I know he likes his clothes to fit loose (autisim things), so maybe 3 or even 4x jerseys would probably be best right now. And I'm absolutely happy to pay for them!! Thanks so much!!!
