|What exactly defines one as a Clydesdale?||Funston|
Mar 4, 2003 6:49 PM
|Is it a weight thing, a body fat thing, does ability figure in, does height figure in and if so, how? What are the border points?
Just a confused 197 lb. hillclimber/sprinter who wonders where he fits in....

|I've always considered a clydesdale to be 200+ and say over 6'2". That's just my opinion. I'm 6'4" and 220 so there is no doubt I'm a clydesdale.|

|You're the same dimensions as a former all-pro linebacker from the Raiders, Ted Hendricks aka the Mad Stork. Tall and lanky, but smart, tough and always in the right place at the right time.
You sound like a slightly larger version of me. I don't think of myself as a Clydsedale except when I get my ass whupped up a big climb, which only a few people can do. Then it's just a convenient excuse.

|No, I'm not Ted Hendricks, but my hs football coach laid the Mad Stork label on me, hence my tag. I played hs ball during the mid-70's. 6'4", long arms and legs, and I played DE or OSLB. The name fit.|

|events that would register a rider/runner/participant as a clydesdale consider 200+ pound males.
"athena" is the term for females of this class; they must weigh 150 or more to "qualify".

|Some call me "lil Mig".
Oh my god I suck in the mountains. However remember the old saying "$#@%* slides downhill". Few can catch me on the descents.

|In cycling terms you're a Clydesdale if...||ColnagoFE|

|you weigh more than about 170lbs. since that appears to be the maximum weight most of the cycling stuff is designed for. any engineers here corroborate that?|| |
