These guys seem pretty weighty for regular commuters.

The aspect ratio does seem a little off on some of the shots (probably just 4:3 squished to 16:9). But in any case, it's not a cool to call them "weighty". That wouldn't be much different than me calling you out for be 6' and ONLY 147 lbs -- dude, you must have no muscle, I bet you can't even lift your own bike. Kind of silly, don't you think?

If anything it looks more like those guys have freakin huge hill climbing legs...and at 200 miles a week, they'd probably smoke most of us on any decent length ride.
