Ahem...yeah, I was.

I've had the Knolly for a few years now, it's the sweetest mountain bike I've ever had (I think it's the eighth) It does everything well, but I never took it into the park (Whistler downhill park) it's not enough bike for that thrashing.

Just missing the cross bike.

Maintenance is a bitch, but its the only motor I've got, so I gotta keep up on it.

Just as an alternative, look into fezzari.

Depends on just how fat the ass is.

Plenty of steel frame roadies will support really big clydes. (Clydesdale is the term the 200+lb riders give ourselves. Athenas for the ladies.)

Lots of discussion here for the bigger crowd:
