So I will post it again. I originally posted Cindy and my picture under the my wife post. We are an average couple.

Really just kidding Ron-she's very attactive, now take a deep breath.

Is that you?

Muncher generally lets himself go in the winter off season - following a shoulder injury in South Africa in September he was unable to compete in cyclocross through the winter

he's back on the trainer now and is slimming down - we're doing the Paris-Brest-Paris brevet later this year

not a good picture - had to use a massively wide-angle lens to get the gut mostly in - you loose a lot of picture quality that way.

Still, testimony to the build quality of those Heliums eh?

What is wrong with our picture?

Mine's just an amateur snap really, but at least you get some feel for the sheer size of the gut. Could use a little more detail though on the belly-spill I thought.

Still, you know, can still climb on 26 spoke wheels....

what gauge spoke is that Muncher?

See, although there is a common mis-understanding that the hub "rests" on the spokes under load, in fact it hangs from the top spokes. Therefore, you don't need all that nasty heavy metal to do the job.

exactly, how strong do you think spokes are in compression compared to tension?, probably still not strong enough for that gut!!.

Enjoy the ride this weekend, unfortunately I can't borrow an mtb/cross, so I'll be out on the road instead.

too bad - next time we'll try and arrange a road outing
You are confused....muncher

That's me off-season at 32stones.

I get down to 11st 7Lbs during April each year, for racing, hence the spokes.

I used to be a lot bigger when I worked at Pizza Hut, but now that I have an office job, I just fill my cubicle with star fruit, and keep my weight down that way.

maybe we could get back to bikes?DougSloan

Ron, maybe we can try to steer the discussions back to talking about bikes and riding? Thanks.


P.S.: If you post too much personal information here, I guarantee you will be attacked. That's the way of the internet.

I think that Raleigh builds an affordable tandem. Does anyone know anything about them?

The guy doesn't care about bikes. All he cares about are the responses he gets. He responds to every freakin post.
But - "it's not about the bike" :-) nmmuncher
