    How many of us take note of our measurements?

    I measured my thighs at the beggining of the month, and they had grown since the beggining of the year to 22.75 inches with no fat on them at all, I wish I could say the same about the rest of me.

    How big are yours and how much would you say is fat? be honest

    25 inches and no fat. Bigger than Posh Spice's waist, apparently.

    Mine are a puny 21 inches. Does size matter? Surely it's what they can do for you on the bike that counts:ohmy:

    Likewise. My thighs are not particularly large anyway - I never was much of a sprinter, more endurance.

    I'm reading through a couple of Stephen Roche books at the moment and he has surprisingly small thighs.

    some lads at the club who are long distance riders have quite small legs.

    It's not a comparison as to who's is biggest, just out of curiosity really

    Ullrich used to apologise about the size of his thighs, I read.

    I wonder what Freud would say about this thread?

    I don't want to win this competition anyway.... I want smaller thighs ... but then I think a reasonable proportion might be fat :smile:...sigh...:biggrin:

    I posted then noticed this one afterwards. Did I write what you expected ... I guess so.

    PS. is it for one individual thigh at the biggest point?
     
  13. I have no idea what my thigh size is but my other half calls me thunder thighs:biggrin:
