What is everyone weighing in at?

A light bike doesn't replace good fitness.

Coming back from 122kg – 268Lbs……..as a racer in the ‘80-s I weighed <75kg

17% body fat (that will be <12% in summer)

You just build up to it, i used to eat like a horse, double portions for every meal, snacks and sweets all the time. Couldn't get over 60 kilos (at 175cm). Intervals, weights, XC training, road racing.........

As soon as i stopped training (and probably halved my food intake!) i put on over 20 kilos.

Now i just have to get back to training 15 hours a week. :?

It real hard to believe that when I was racing in my 20's I weighed between 127-132lbs.

121.25 pounds or 55kg, I am 5'8" or about 177cm. 26 years old and I have been 54-55kg for a fair few years now, can't seem to build myself up, I am down on power compared to my mates but climbing is pretty much effortless.

This time last year I was hovering between 150 and 155lbs. Right now my power is way higher than this time last year and I can hang with the guys with monster legs on the flats. I think I can comfortably lose 5lbs of fat by the end of the season and hold onto that weight for awhile.

I was about 189-190 cm when I was 14 years old, don't know the weight, but not much.

Everyone is shocked when I tell them the weight. Most think very high 80's or low 90's, not low 100's, my legs are rubbing the clear coat of the isp on my look 595 :lol:
