    6' 2" 140 lbs.

    I'm not "big" per say but some consider me tall. (I'm actually just a hair under 6' 3".)

    When I was in HS, I was 6'5" and 145lbs as a sophomore and only about 155-160 when I graduated, but didn't become an official "clyde" until after 30 years of age. It didn't matter what or how much I ate, I couldn't sell my soul to gain a pound. Now it seems like just the opposite....

    Wow, i can't remember when I weighed that little.

    I gradutated HS at 6'6" 193. not up to 255. need to get down to 235, which is still over my POS "ideal" of 217.

    6'3" and 145....go eat a cheeseburger...make it a triple.

    You've got to be grossly underweight for your size. Like unhealthy underweight.

    150 lbs for a 5'0" man plus 3, 4 or 5 lbs per inch depending on frame size (S M or L).

    so at 6'3, I'll go medium frame.....150 + 15x4 = 210!

    Dat's nutz!

    was there a question or did you just want us to comment on your weight, or lack there of?

    being that skinny can't possibly be healthy...
    Hell, I'm too skinny (borderline scrawny looking) at 200 (6'3'') yeah, I'd be concerned if I were you.

    you're out of place here I think, not monsterously tall, and for sure nowhere near needing heavy duty gear for your weight.

    zion, you aren't a clyde either!

    (as far as any level of 'need' for burly or oversized parts by virtue of your massiveness)

    Hell yeah I am

    At least in my head I am. I need to get to 175 or below to be competitive. George Hincapie is 6'2" and 170lbs (tdf weight). So I think he is probably 175-180 in the off season.

    I am puerto rican so my ass looks like J Lo's - that is another 10 pounds...

    I am freakishly skinny but I eat like a horse. Many a time have I beaten 200+ lbs friends in eating contests. Its not like I am emaciated and weak either. I am very in shape and very active, thats probably part of my problem. I regularly run and work out on top of mountain biking. I actually just got back from Airborne school and there my weight helped. Four out of my five jumps I was the first one out of the plane and damn near the last one to the ground.

    I used to be that exact same size, when I was in HS. Now im 6'3" 230 pounds. Age will catch up with you, which isnt so bad since I have found my new ability to gain weight has allowed me to gain a little muscle mass as well.

    You've got a pretty rare body type, but I've met lots of skinny, skinny people who pack food away. Like some other people said, when you hit middle age your metabolism will probably shift and you'll put on some weight, maybe more than you'd like. Right now your biggest problem is probably finding pants that fit.
    We all get it in the end.

    6-2 and 180lbs is not a Clyde. It's more like a... Claude. Another 20-30 lbs and you can start calling yourself Clyde junior.
    I'm UNIQUE... just like everybody else.
