|I'm at 6'2" and 225 lbs.
Last year started cycling around 260 lbs.
Just wondering since I'm nearly twice the size of some of you.

|Thats not bad. If I take 10 lbs for every inch and I weigh 165 at just over 5-10, then if you were 5-10 youd be 170. Im not fat anymore(down from 192 since I rediscovered cycling.) At 6-4 how big is your frame?|

|I am 6'1" and weighed in this morning at 301 and my bodyfat percentage was 22%. It really sucks trying to find clothes to cycle in when you have 21 inch biceps.|

|In terms of weight, I'm certainly not the biggest at 216 pounds. But I probably do stretch the altitude limits more than most at 6'7" tall|

|I'm 5'11 and 185 lbs, and feel like I'm huge compared to a lot of cyclists. Size (eg, weight) really is an obstacle for cycling, particularly if you ride in hilly areas. My brother is 6'3"/ 240 lbs and a really strong cyclist on the flats, but suffers on the hills. I like riding with him because it's one of the few times I can consistently outclimb a strong rider. I know a few big guys who are strong climbers, but they are all pretty thin.|

|depends on how you define it. by weight? by height? biggest gut? largest feet?|
|How about whos the shortest oh yea.......||abicirider|
Jun 12, 2003 7:35 AM
|on a good day I'm about maybe 5'5" but most days more like 5'4" hell I think I'm shrinking with old age.
One advantage half the other riders can't see me when I attack I'm so short!!!

|btw, just saw your post about building a bike. go for it. think about the idiots who get paid to build/work on bikes at most shops. if they can do it so can you. when in doubt Zinn & the Art of Road Bike Maintenance is an invaluable resource.
rt - spent last friday night drinking beer & building a bike.

|I would have to say that I am the biggest person on this board. 6'21/2" and 350lbs+. The lightest I have gotten in the past 3 years was 320lbs and I did the 'The Ride for Heart" Toronto in 2 and half hours. I am hoping to get down to 275 by my wedding next year in May. I usualyy ride around 5 times a week between my road bike and mountain bike but the weather has been so bad up in Toronto that I have slacked off so far but finally starting to get into the groove.|

|I sometimes feel that I'm a bit big for a cyclist at 6'4"/195lbs, but not anymore. I'm even on the heavy side right now.
Thanks for the pick me up!
