Official "SoCal" How Tall Are You? Thread

I gotta know!...I was wrong about JohnR. Some reason I thought he was about 5'5. Boy, found out I was way of after talking to the guy on the phone yesterday (cool guy for being super humanly fast on the climbs!).

This would clear up some confusion for some of us inquiring minds. I've ridden with Eyemage a few times and he swears after meeting that I'm a "little 6'1 235 lbs". Then there is Grrlyrida who while standing right next to me swears I'm 6'5 and 300 lbs!

6'1, that's it! NO more, maybe less while I shrink with old age!

Measure up people!

6'1 @180lb, though I'm sure you'd whip me on the climbs none the less

5'11" and ~180 lbs, i've gained about 10 lbs since fracturing my hip in august but have slowly dropping over the last couple of years from a high of 198 lbs. plan is to get down to at least 170 again and get closer to 160. i used to race at 148-155 but that's probably a pipe dream...

So that Robertkat is not alone - I'm 1.82 m and 71 kg (for you feet and lbs lovers this is 6'0" and 157 lbs). Same as Ivan Basso and Jan Ullrich (when he was in shape).

I'm about 5'9.5" and ~165lbs.

I'm trying to make the latter of those numbers go down, but it doesn't seem to work.
