5'4"

I'm 5'4", and as of this AM I was 128 lbs and 21% bodyfat on my old Tanita. I've spent the weekend moving so I might have lost a couple pounds thru dehydration. it was hotter than the hammered down hinges of Hades yesterday and for some freaking reason I can NEVER manage to drink enough when I'm moving.

I'm short for a cyclist, but then I'm a girl. I'm short but not unusually so, I suppose.

I ride a 45/46cm compact frame, 48.5 custom standard geo, size small MTB. I can ride up to a 51cm standard roadie geo if the TT is short enough.

one of the guys I coach is 6'6". I can basically fit my entire roadbike, wheels and all, thru his main triangle.

6'2"

I'm 6'2" and 225lbs. My goal is to be as thin as G. Hincapie (I think he's the same height as me). Is he too skinny for someone who is 6'2"?

5' 7" and ride a 53 to 54 cm road bike and weigh 172lbs on my way down to 165lbs. With the heights and weights listed above ... makes me wonder how many folks on here are under 30yrs of age with those specs and such low body-fat! Yes, I'm jealous! :D

I'm 6'1" 188lbs and ??? bodyfat but more than 5%. I wear a 43" jacket and 33-34" waist pants. Everyone thinks I'm about 170lb when they see me and an shocked that I'm upper 180's. But heck, that's down from 202 this winter.

Howdy,
on my last ride Saturday I noticed a rider who had to be over 7 feet tall. The head tube on his bike was as long as my leg! OK, I am exagerating a bit!! I'm 6' 4" @ 215 lbs.
Interesting height rage in you poll. I guess that's the perpective of someone who is 6'4".

What's up with the 5'8" and under category??? That's getting tall in my book.

5 ft 1.75 inches at my last physical.

skewed categories?

I think your poll breaks it down a bit odd. The "average" US male is 5'9.something." I think you'd need a lil' more resolution at the lower end!

I'm 6 foot even and 138lbs. I've never had my bf% measured, but...

(technically, 5'11 5/8" at the doctors)
