Just wanted to share a personal experience which i owe alot to biking, i started 4 months ago at 200 lbs, and at 6 feet tall this was a rather chuby weight. And after four months (and still going) of healthy eating, regular running, and LOTS of biking, i am not 170 lbs, and much happier with me weight (although i dont plan to stop the healthy eating + weight loss). My one question is, for a 6 foot tall male, what is the ideal weight?

Different weights for different body types. Body fat percentage is a much better measure of fitness. If you want to set a good target weight, you should get you body fat tested. Most gyms will do this for a fee, or you can use some of the online body fat estimation calculators. This one seems fairly decent:
Like you I was 200lbs and 6 ft tall about a year ago, if you felt rather chubby you must have felt like I did at that weight. I am now running about 160 give or take a couple of lbs and it feel about right, will probably weigh about 155 this summer. I am rather skinny though, if you are more of the "brawny" type the 170 might be perfect for you.
