    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.

    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.

    Bought a RIP 9 this year and will not be going back to 26" (Except for the old Trek I turned into a SS while I look for a deal on a 29er SS) that I use for a loaner bike or for putzing around the neighborhood...

    5' 11" haven't weighed myself in ages, but I'm around 200lbs. Sadly. I've been trying to get back down to my fighting weight of 180 for the cyclocross season around here. At least I'm getting strong again!

    6'7" and 230 lb. Just got a FS 29er built by Uinta Bikes in Utah and couldn't be happier- this thing is amazing. I was instantly 125% faster on the slow parts and about 200% faster on the fast sections (though this is compared to an 18 year old rigid 26er). Why anyone over 6' would ride 26" wheels is beyond me.

    6"3" 315,...although I hope to get that down a bit now that I'm riding. Bike parts are already breaking & warping.
