I'm new to the forum, have been scanning with great interest, but there seems to be a dearth of information specific to the most ironic of rider classes: the venerable clydesdale. If you're a big ol' hoss, how big are you and what do you ride? Anything clydesdale-specific that you have discovered that has led you to a higher level of fitness/competition? Me, I'm 6'5" and 215 (usually get down to 200-205 mid-summer), I ride a Cannondale CAAD 7 and Ksyrium SLs were the best thing that ever happened to me (finally a light wheel that stay true!). As soon as I learned to stop dreading the hills, the joys of cycling opened up to me without restraint. Although I'm physically fit, I'm thinking about trying to drop serious weight and see what it does for my cycling. How about you, big boy?
