You know, I love to ride a mountain bike. On the road, on singletrack, freestyle, whatever, I love to ride. Unfortunately, I'm of the... hmmm... let's see... rotund side. I get tired of extra large and xx large clothing that wouldn't fit my kids, to say nothing of my middle-aged, middle section. Come on, give us girthsome guys something to ride in. Something we don't have to go to WalMart or the big-and-tall (read: fat fu@&s) store. For whatever reason, I don't get thin even when I ride, but my abilities and endurance increase. I need something in a 48 slim (LMAO) to get me down the road. Oh, and a frame that can accommodate my wide load would be nice. I know road bikers are skinny and most mountain bikers are thin, but dammit (!) I'm not. Thanks for listening and vote for the fat guy (or gal). Peace through assured mutual destruction!
