    29er's, how tall are you and how much do you weigh? (Height, size)

    To those that have converted to 29ers and will only ride 29ers---How tall are you and how much do you weigh? I am just curious what height and weight class makes up most of the riders.

    After I get about 100 or so of sample size, I will post up the results.

    Six feet three inches. Thirty-seven inch legs has always had my azz higher than the average tall guy. At about 195 now from 238 about a year back; gotta get some new pants again since I need 34 after wearing 38 for many moons.

    5' 11" and 145 pounds with some but not much clothing (just for the imagery).

    I wouldn't say that I would only ride 29ers though. Much fun as this forum is, wheel size is just one of the many factors that determines how a bike rides. Though if I were over 6' 2" or so I'd be even less likely to buy a bike with 26" wheels.

    That's quite a weight drop in such a short time.
    Congratulations.

    Was stuck at 200 lbs for a long time (almost a year) until I got my 29er/SS...the SS kick started the weight loss again and six pounds vanished in less than a month

    i sold both 26'' bikes last year. i currently own a rigid single 29er. i am in the process of trying to sell a few guns and an old road bike, so i can buy a 1x9 hardtail 29er. i don't see buying anything but a 29er.

    I fit the height but not the weight. . . .

    6'0" and about 138 pounds, pants inseam around 32"

    I blame road riding for my twelve-year-old-girl physique, but singlespeed mountain riding isn't helping either.

    See, that's your problem. You need to start doing 24hr solos on a rigid SS.
