As someone with a northern european build who never managed to get any of these mythical “curves”, I kinda love the new avatar[*]… It’s endearing similar to how I actually look, shoulders and all.
I suspect the root of the problem here is that for BMIs between 20 and 30, there’s a MUCH wider range of builds for women than there are for men. I’d love to see some sort of “build”/“body fat %” slider though - this would also help to address @Juan’s comment about the lean rugby player vs fat cyclist issue.
Bring back the old ponytail though - it’s physics-defying ability to stick straight up during the sprint animation was great.
And, @Susan Ford, tattoo sleeves would be _amazing_.
[*] Edit: Just saw the low BMI/“climber” version of the new avatar during a group ride. Now I see what the issue here is - the shoulders on that are sadly _way_ out of proportion compared to how they look on the larger version.
