Peak weight = 236 1.5 years ago
Current Weight = 190 lbs this morning


I was 190 this morning when I jumped on the scale. :eek:

BMI for my height still says I'm overweight and I am below 10% bodyfat now. Something's not right. hahahahahahahhahahaha

So which one???


Tour de France Champion


Team Machine



Supersix EVO


Madone 5.5


F1


AR3 in Kawi GREEN!


Bianchi
Sempre


Infinito



Having a hard time choosing between the two

Congratulations on the weight loss Turbo. What did you not like about the Prince?
I should have made that more clear. The Prince was the last bike by Pinarello that I liked. I don't particularly care for the styling of the Dogma and their lower end models look similar to other makes other than the forks.

I rode the Evo and liked it very much. It is very light. I found it stiff but not unforgiving. The Super Six is a bit more compliant and less expensive.

I recently test rode the BMC Team and Race machine. I prefer the european geometry of BMC's. I found the Team Machine more compliant than the Race Machine- thinner seat stays.

Wheels help with the look of the bike.I like my newly acquired Mavic Cosmic Carbone SL wheels. A lighter alternative is the Mavic Ksyriuym SL- 1500 Grams. The Ksyrium SR is lighter still but difficult to true.

Great choices you have. I think I would go with the BMC Impec.- great European geometry, comfortable and high cool factor.

Yeah the Impec is #1 on my list. I just gotta prepare myself mentally to part with the $$$$$. It's like a ritual that I go through. lol

However, the EVO Red package is very attractively priced for what you actually get.

I have a custom set of wheels that I'll probably need to have redone. I had them built when I was about 220lbs with 32 spokes. Mavic CXP33 rims with DT-Swiss 240 hubs.

I think I'm going to have a new set built and use the same bomb-proof hubs.

BMI is a bunch of BS. I am a 28 (IIRC) which puts me at borderline obese. But your body shape is what makes the difference. If you have a wide frame your BMI will be higher. My life insurance rate is more because of it.

I think it was set up as a simple way to get an idea of a person's weight, but it is woefully inadequate to actually determine anything.

It is a very flawed system. Going by height and weight alone would mean that Arnold Schwarzenegger would have been morbidly obese in his prime...

Just buy the fukn BMW already. This is probably the 5th thread hinting at you possibly getting one. Everyone knows you want one, even blind people!;)

You bought an entry level bike, then a midlevel bike and now you want a high end bike. If you just bought a high end road bike from the beginning you would've saved 3 threads on the forum.:eek:
