Does being overweight shorten one's torso?

54d6/1243610072-bike_grass.jpgFirst Foothills ride of the season last night leaves me with one question: Does an extra 20 to 30 pounds (from the winter, ok) shorten a guy's torso or arms?

Because last year my mountain bike was a tad small for me ... I was riding all hunched up. But last night it seemed to fit really well.

So if any docs or bike fitting experts out there know, please leave a comment below.
