    Perhaps we should start with some actual FACTS:

    According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the average U.S. woman is 5' 3.7 (162 centimeters) tall and weighs 152 pounds (69 kilograms). This corresponds to a Body Mass Index of 26.3 kilograms/meters², which is slightly LESS than the average man's.

    By the way, the average U.S. male stands 5' 9.1 tall and weighs 180 pounds, with a Body Mass Index of 26.5 kg/m².

    You guys really HAVE become FAT ba$tards, haven't ya?

    BTW, last time I checked the average height for both a japanese woman, and average WORLDWIDE height for a woman was around 5'2". So who is considered short?

    ok, is it just me? or do you too get the feeling that kawboy8 is trying to "git with" a short chick. not that there is anything wrong w/ that of course...but look at how quick he stuck up for the shorter girls when oldbroad suggested a 5'8 race team. i'm pretty sure she did not mean that shorter girls are slower, we all know of course that height has nothing to do with speed. his response just made me laugh :-)

    Nope. We're up to 5 members. You gotta stick with the shorties.



    And no, I was not doing a Randy Newman, it was just that there were all different heights popping up and then three 5' 8" s.

    5'3" here. And I'm thinking going solo is the way. Not that I don't like you gals enough to form a team, but I gotta stick with what I am good at. No sprints for this old broad (I can say that since I just had another year tacked on to my age). Maybe another duo, like I did for the 18 Hours of Fruita; BTW, my team mate and I were pretty close in height.

    {RANT}Grrr.... I hate BMI. When I'm in very good shape, my BMI still comes in at over 31. To actually be considered not obese by BMI, I'd have to loose most of my muscle tone. I guess I'm just dense.

    And then there's my dad. He has a beer belly. He's had it since shortly after college. He's 55. He skis over 90 days most years, hikes another 90 days and bikes everyonce in a while too. He does 200 sit ups every morning. I'm sure his BMI is worse than mine (he's both shorter and rounder) but the guy is in incredible shape for a man his age.

    So anyway BMI is a very deceptive metric. While it might accurately describe some people (with an "average" body type), it sucks for describing others.{/rant}

    BMI is b*llshit. I take serious issue with the fact that their are medical professionals who actually consider BMI an indication of anything other than it's creator's ignorance. I, like you apparently, could be at (and have been at) 6% body fat and been considered overweight according to BMI.

    Just had to vent, this has pissed me off for a few years now.

    I didn't have my body fat measured but I know I looked thin (I ain't never gonna look skinny unless I'm starving), rode 150 or so miles a week and never felt better in my life.

    I have a friend who's BMI always lists him as underweight, but he's also very healthy. (He doesn't do anything too serious for excercise, but he commutes by foot about 5 miles a day and eats well.) It's a quick and dirty metric that might have some public health usefulness, but the way it's bandied about is awful.

    I'm 5'2" and I'm not American (ahem, didn't grow up eating beef raised on steriods )... so that puts me right about at the world average. 152lbs seems quite a high average for weight though if the average height is just under 5'4"... I guess most people need more exercise.

    ... the average for an American Woman is 5'4". 5'3' Hardly sounds 'shorty' to me.

    My wife is 5'4" and a size zero. She often shops for clothes in the teen section. See seems tiny to me, but she is average height.

    No way, I think BMI is great! I am 5'-10.5" tall, have a 30" waist, weigh about 185 lbs and durring hard training have 15% body fat. I have a BMI of 26.5. Technically, according to the BMI, I am obese.

    I have had people try to compare themselves to myslef and claim they were in better shape because of our BMI ratings, kind of annoying. Whenever I call myself obese my GF smacks me.

    I will help add to the 'woman' poll, my GF is 5'-3" tall, 105 lbs, and passes most of the guys on technical climbs (small girls can ride too!).

    i'm 5'8" but yeah, I agree

    Kallisti swears that the according to the 1998 Worldfacts data, the average female height is somewhere in the 5"2-5"3 range.

    I know that ALL of the women's bike clothing manufacturers make clothing for women that height and almost all of the women I ride with are under 5'4".

    Ask them what size bike they ride.

    $20.00 says most, if not all, ride a men's medium.

    My point is that you live in Japan, do you not? One would think that you might be observant enough to notice that most women AROUND YOU (go on, have a look) are "shorties" by your standards, which are, BTW completely and utterly out of alignment with reality. Do you understand?

    As to RESEARCH? Don't insult researchers everywhere just because you're too lazy to google "average height women".

    Yep...I would assume so. There is a picture of someone riding in a wedding dress in a post someowhere on here...maybe she knows.

    My point is that you live in Japan, do you not? One would think that you might be observant enough to notice that most women AROUND YOU (go on, have a look) are "shorties" by your standards, which are, BTW completely and utterly out of alignment with reality. Do you understand?

    As to RESEARCH? Don't insult researchers everywhere just because you're too lazy to google "average height women".

    All I did was ask a simple question...in fun. I didnt insult anyone...take a deep breath. As for Japan...there are not a ton of Japanese women riders on the base I am at....yes, in the general population, they are short...as are the guys.

    They are AVERAGE height. Do you know what that means (actually, I'm serious, do you)?

    And yes, you could have posed this question without calling the average woman "shorties" "tinies". In this country, calling people shortie is considered an insult.

    Now you can take a deep long breath. Do you understand that saying "just kidding" doesn't make it OK to blurt out whatever nonsense pops into you lil' head?

    If you find the word "shorty" to be offensive, you must spend most of your waking life pissed off.

    Lighten up there, Tiny.

    Sorry, I've seen how reason, logic and civility piss you off. I'm certainly not trying to piss off the HK. Thought you weren't looking.

    Reason, logic, and civility? Those things may or may not piss me off, but you my dear, were actually upset about being called a "shorty."

    Reason? Nope.

    Logic? Uh uh.

    Civil? Mmmm, don't think so.

    Just whiny and silly, really. So you may want to add "whiny" and "silly" to your little list.

    Oops, I mean your average list. Wouldn't want to offend ...

    Nope, not upset. Just playing a lil' "teach a troll".
    Sorry Kawboy, but you really can be, although I honestly think that you don't mean to be. It's just in the way you phrase things.

    Huh?! That completely sucks. I was all prepared to throw some Napoleon Complex digs your way -- funny ones too -- and you go and totally ruin my lead-in. Oh well, some other unsuspecting soul will have it coming ... later.

    By the way, did you know that the term Napoleon Complex is somewhat inappropriate, since Napoleon was in fact taller than the average Frenchman in the 1800s?

    Average.

    Don't mind me, I'm just sitting here, entertaining myself.

    Great factoid.
    I know. Me too.

    But I also know when I've met my match (and beyond)

    And that was coming from a someone calling men "fat bastards"....which, for the easily offended, would be an insult far worse than "tiny" or "shorty".

    I'm the shrimp of my family at 5'7" (also getting shorter with each crash).

    My sisters are 6'1" and 6' and my brother is 6'1". Dad was 6'3" (now about 6'2") and mom was 5'9" when she was alive.

    Coming from a family of amazons, I'm also blessed with large hands and feet (size 11.5).

    Yeah, I agree. Being called a shortie is WAY offensive.

    I mean, the other day I was driving along, and this dude was all, "Hey you dumb skank! Get your shortie ass out of my way, ho! Shouldn't you be in the kitchen making babies?!?"

    Can you believe he called me a shortie? The frickin' gull of some people...
