Thanks for all of the replies so far. Everyone says the Romes are really heavy, do they make that much of a difference? I'm still new.

Snowklinger, since I'm staying with the Proto, do you think I should size down? I rode a 153 pickle last year and I wasn't a huge fan. I assumed it was too small for my weight.
The proto at 54 handled my weight just fine at speed, obviously not the way a heritage will, and I expect my Evo to flap more, but as I have stated repeatedly, the more I ride, the less of a hurry I am to bomb it to the bottom. Way more fun to be had at 15-20mph than 55, and I'm trying to die less. The '57 will be fine for you also, its just an inch.
