I measured my kid for his 5th birthday. 3 ft 9.5 in. ďHow tall are you, Daddy?Ē Iím 5-9. See?...

crap. Iím 5-8.

I've been saying Iím 5-9 for fifteen years.

At some point 20+ years ago I got measured at 5-10 and thatís whatís on my license. I suppose this changes but that must have been an error.

This changes all my thinking about my own bike size... not to mention BMI. Please disregard anything prior...

I told my wife. She says she knew.
