Currently riding a Bataleon but going back to a Rome next season I think.

Just my 2 cents.
Thanks! Is the Rome size chart a bit unusual? On their website, the listed weight range for the 147 gold is 70-120 lbs and for the 151 is 95-135 lbs. Generally for my weight other companies have something in the mid-to-hight 140's listed, but based on the Rome size chart I would go with the 151 I think.
