Re: About bike shops for big people?

There could be an opportunity but there are relatively few people over say 190 cm, 120 kg, many of those would not be willing to pay more than smaller people. Many can manage with robust standard wheels, long seat posts etc

I am quite glad to be about average height + weight

Re: Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

Bryn and Cyril soon became regulars at the velodrome, they got on well with the trainer, he seemed to know everything
Before each race he explained exactly how one might win, after every race he explained exactly why neither had won :?
