Footies? What sport are you thinking of, gymnastics? Last I checked, pole vaulters wore spikes (and usually a regular non-spandex singlet for guys). Anyway, Trey Hardee and Ashton Eaton, two top decathletes who obviously have to pole vault, are 210 and 185 respectively, so you're right in the ballpark.

But whatever. You can ride what you want, and I'll ride what I want. Doesn't bother me. Just don't scare posters off of carbon unnecessarily.
