    What Size are Your Thighs?

    I often see this topic in the skinny forums but us clydes can play too!.... I measured mine at the highest point and a lil flex does help! For comparison, throw in height and weight too!

    6'1-245 lbs.......24 1/4" thighs!

    I assume the weight should be 245 pounds, not 145.

    6' 6", 248 pounds
    27.75" quads

    Rick, who did my bike fitting at the LBS, is a former road racer, and I think he still does some track racing. He's about 5' 10" tall, and has 28" quads! The guy is a superbeast.

    Bunch of lightweights

    Sweet jebus! Just give up on pants and wear a kilt. (That's was my solution when I couldn't find jeans that fit.)

    Near the top of my list to visit! Have a friend who wears them a lot and has been working on me. I'm getting close...

    Did you ever try to ride in one?

    Heck no! That's just asking for a whole lot of trouble, IMO. Plus, I've never seen a pair of SPD compatable brogues.

    Well a whole group rides RAGBRAI in kilts. I assume during the ride they wear spandex under, but don't ask during off hours!

    Yeah. Don't. You end up with about 8 layers of fabric between your thighs and the saddle. It's not so bad upright and at low cadance. But trying to go at all fast, it's a good way to get saddle sores.
    I do all my riding in street clothes, and don't have problems with anything else. A kilt, though, is just no good.

    6'2" 250 and 26.25" Gauds

    Do you guys find that pants fit funny - like they can be comfortable around the waist and calves but tight around your massive Gauds.????

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.
