    Bike modifications for semi-fat people!!!

    that "learn to ride' post was just dumb from start to finish. ignore it. 190 isn't huge and you don't need any special "heavyweight" type bike, even if such a thing existed. you don't need a riser stem, you don't need 36 spoke wheels. just buy the bike you like and have at it

    it's me selling it (same name?). it's a nice bike but i just don't feel like it was the right bike for me and i'd rather sell er quick and buy something more suitable for my riding style and let someone get a good deal. but hey corsaire, nice to hear the voice of the cautious man

    Home rebuild tale of woe...

    lol. (sorry) BUT to be constructive… i ****ed up once and accidentally took an sti lever apart (i thought i was undoing a different allen bolt, not the main assembly one), and though it was a **** to get back together, because the springs are tightly coiled etc etc, i did it after about an hour...
