    Clyde clothes

    In my normal clothes, I wear XL, but am noticing that cycling gear runs "true" to size, not to oversized Americans. I'm trying to find some XX jerseys and larger size apparel. The normal websites don't have a good selection, and my LBS has nothing.

    Any other fat asses have a place to get good stuff?

    PricePoint is my favorite place to find clothing.

    Hate to break it to ya, but XX+ clothing is going to be hard to find

    the XL is for a 51" chest, and that's as big as I can find

    Ever consider looking at an MX jersey? they're designed to fit over-top of bulky armor, and can get really quite big. I have seen them in XXL+

    Sweet. Never heard of that company before.

    I have to say, if I saw someone wearing 5XL lycra anything, I would need to go to the emergency eye-bleach station

    I had never heard of them either, but I found them through this site.
    They also sell on eBay.
    I also agree with the lycra comment!

    I've been usung their HD touring shorts for several years - good stuff!

    Hi all, so I'm new to this site/forum and to riding aswell. Im a big guy 6'5" 385lbs. Yeah baby!!!! Thanks to my friend Photo-John I think I found a built a bike thats going to stand up to some punishment (my weight). Anyway, though I'm a fat ass I'm still fairly active. I typically go to the gym, racketball, hike, and destroy in the pit and most punk shows that roll through town. Anyway, now I'm biking and find that I'm in need of some saddle padding. So I guess I'm in the market for some biking shorts of some type. Where can I find some larger shorts with quality padding? Are the bib type shorts better (more comfortable)? i'M dedicated to continue riding and loose some weigh and am happy to have found this forum, I'll return often. -Fat Matt

    I personally have given up on baggies; I just haven't found any with the right mix of waist and thigh dimensions. Bibs also done roll down or creep, which is a plus. Pearl Izumi's been great for me, with their XXL bibs working fine. If you want you can always throw on a pair of normal shorts over.

    same here, lycra under old BDU/cutoff army pants. I'm large of thigh, even if not at clyde weight, and don't like super baggy shorts. For price and functionality, lycra + shorts/cutoffs works well for me. get the army surplus pants that have gusseted crotch, your nether regions will thank you for not having seams 'down there'.
    I was stoked to find some merino wool sweaters this weekend on the cheap ($5), as they make good cool weather longsleeve 'jerseys'. smart wool is more comfy, but at the prices they command, I'm all over merino wool.

    I haven't found bibs that fit me quite right, but it seems more of an issue of my long torso. Then again, I haven't looked at many bibs either , as the price tag makes me shy away.
