I know there are many variables....not interested in those.  If you are 6'0 or 6'1" and have 12% BF.....what do you weigh?

yeah....that is what I am thinking.  I am 6'1 (a hair under) and 167.....my bf was 16.4% a week ago (caliper test)....which shocked me.  I was certain it would be less.  The swimming is helping tone up the problem areas and I have incorporated some high rep/low weight weight training......and I am targeting 161 before I check it again.

This is tough because how much muscle you have will be a huge factor.  If you lift weights pretty seriously, you could easily be at 12% body fat in the 180-185 range.

Yeah..I agree with the previous poster..if you are a tri guy or runner probably 160...if you actually lift weights and look like you eat a sandwich once in a while then it could be 180 or better.

I know it's not an apples to apples comparison, but a few years back I got down to 12.5% body fat using a Tanita Bioimpedance scale and at 6'5" I was 223 lbs.

I'm 6'1, 12% bf, and I weigh 178.  I stand to lose 7 or 8 pounds though.

Hi, I'm 6 foot on the dot and am around 15% BF (based on sight, knowledge and experience).
I weigh 231lbs.

But then I am a bodybuilder turning to triathlons. I am, however, a natural bodybuilder and so am not grotesquely big like some of my 'assisted' fellows.

I am heavy because I have 28 inch thighs. I'm big all over but not 231lbs heavy without my leg size.
So triathlon training is tough on my joints and swimming is hard but in terms of power and speed, my thighs are good at it and at the point where anaerobic and aerobic cross over they seem to do well. I just need to maintain what they can do for longer!

Functional muscle weight is better than fat weight, but how difficult does muscle make triathlons?
I understand deltoid mass may do, but quad and hamstring mass?
What do you think?

I'm currently sub 12% (between 8-9% at the moment), 6'.1" and weight 160-158 (depending on the day (e.g., hydration)). I was around 12% a few months ago and was around 163-160 on any given day. Moving to a run focus has taken away some of the mass from years of rowing, and now swimming, but I suspect those few pounds will come back soon.

This is a difficult comparison because of a number of factors could influence weight at lower body fat percentages (e.g., bone mass, muscle mass, etc.).

Not sure if you want to compare to others, but if you have solid energy levels and are performing well, I wouldn't be concerned with what the scale says...
