    I'm 5'11" but weight in at a measly 125 lbs. I'm probably the skinniest guy you'd ever meet.

    Hey, somebody knows how to convert from mts to feet and visceversa?????
    I know that an inch = 2.54 cm,
    and 1 inch = 1/12 foot,
    but i´m having trouble to find an easy way to do it

    Ahh!! 80 Kg = 176.3 pounds

    i'm below average:
    5'4.5" and 115 lbs. i'm only 15 though,so i will get bigger i promise you.
  18. I'm 5'5" and 120 soaking wet. Funny thing is im the 'typical' buil for a guitarist, and my guitarist (or soon to be if we ever get rganized) is 6'0" 300 which you would think would be a bassist. Why do more big guys play bass?
