I was wondering how big you guys have gotten your legs to be? I am 5'5'' I weigh in at 140lbs have 21 inch quads and 14.5 inch calfs. Also if any of you know how big the pros can get up to that would be a cool fact.
5'8" 115-120 lbs. needless to say i have pretty small legs as im rather skinny. just measured and they are (diameter) 19.5 inches (quads), 12.5 calfs....they are still growing. at the end of ski season last year they were huge from racing...
Leg sizes don't mean anything. It's a horrible gauge of one's abilities on a bike...
We have a Cat. 3 and Cat. 1 racer who weighs 130-135 each, with legs the size of matchsticks, but either one of them will beat the living daylights out of 99% of people on the road. Both have VO2 max (relative) over 70 and the Cat. 1 racer has a peak wattage of ~1500 in a sprint. He's the guy who weighs 135 and was the national madison champion 2 yrs ago.
All that matters is the muscle fiber composition, the heart, the lungs, the mind and how much pain you can tolerate.
Testy(cles), aren't we, dfleck? Some issues there, perhaps. I'll leave you to your closet and your own skeletons.
As you yourself said--after providing to-the-quarter-inch measurements of your darling muscles--"it really won't tell much." Lighten up. Perhaps you don't know the meaning of "NTTAWWT," but the only thing I didn't include was a smiley face to indicate good-naturedness.
Now go back and measure your pr*ck; that should take you a while. Good luck.
