I rode the 166 btx for a bit (i am smaller then you) the model i had had blunted ends and was a tad bit too big for me. If i was larger it might have been perfect though. I chose it over the skunk ape because it was cheaper and "seemed" like it had a better base, although with how lib names their bases who knows. I think the skunk ape has an extruded base though and riders choice has a sintered. I could be mistaken.
