darn...I was going to say I had you beat but I went to measure and I don't

But my calves are 17.5'' around at the widest point flexed !
road cycling, roller blading, and badminton do wonders

Ummm...

Take this to the Womens Cycling Forum, and you'll find that not only can most of us beat you in the thigh area, we want SMALLER thighs too!

I'm shakin' my head.... why is it that men want the opposite of what women have already, and what women have, they don't want?

Delerio5 ,I am trying to trim down myself but I have not done any leg meausements. ... So I thought I would post mine on here and see were I get to by the end of the year. I am 5ft 8" tall 201lbs 34" waist 44" chest 23" thighs 17" calves. I would like to get around to 175-180 lbs but the more I ride the more I feed the machine with food!
