    Wink So who would like Brandon to make a RR for us full figured fellas?

    I'm well above the 250 mark for the new WBRR bridge ('bout 30+ very stubborn lbs) but ordered one for my bride. Noticed on Brandon's RR announcement thread that there were several big fellas who, to varying degrees, share my challenge. So please post up...maybe this thread will help Brandon consider a RR for us Costco sized folk.
    Mark is the name and If there is more than one way to understand what I just said....I meant the good one.

    I might be interested. Been considering a bridge hammock, but I am what's considered a "Clydesdale" in the cycling world...and a large one at that.

    No matter how big I was, I don't think I could ever bring myself to the point where I described myself as a "full-figured feller." Clydesdale sounds imminently preferable.

    I like fat guy. The only thing I sugar coat is myself. I am not ready yet to purchase my ideal hammock but would love the option of a fat guy rr.

    Well how about "prosperous"? Actual poverty and fat don't go together.

    Once you beef up the suspension, spreader bars and the hammock fabric, it'd weigh alot. My guess would be 5-6 lbs total.
    And the price would be more.

    i think you'd need wider fabric, wider bars, possibly fatter bars, heavier fabric, would definately be heavier overall

    No prob! We are already used to being wider, fatter and heavier overall.
