    Clydesdale cycling apparel survey

    Hi all,

    Long time lurker, 1st time poster.

    Since getting back into cycling, I've been frustrated by the scarcity of cycling clothes for guys my size. I am currently taking an extension business course, and thought this would be a good topic for a case project. So, as part of the project, I put together a brief survey about clydesdale cycling clothes preferences - if you have a few moments, I'd appreciate if you could help me out by filling it out. I'm posting it in a few different clydesdale forums, and I promise to share the results with the forum once the survey is over.

    To take the survey, click here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?s...jigBwmuQ_3d_3d

    Also, if you have any feedback on the survey or the topic, feel free to add it to this thread.

    Thanks!
    Spyponder

    Is that Simi as in Simi Valley?

    You're in the LA area as well aren't you SMT?

    It looks like the Rocky Peak domain was taken down recently.

    Up to 100 responses on the survey - thanks all for the feedback, and keep 'em coming!

    New Zealand Clothing Companies

    There are a couple of good options for MTB clothing from the new zealand companies

    http://www.groundeffect.co.nz/

    http://www.nzoactive.com/

    They both ship internationally and make a range of good gear. Im 6'4" and about 240. The NZO stuff fits me well.

    I'm a big guy who rides a bike, just like you, I hope you reconsider. I have over 170 responses so far.

    I am more active poster at bikeforums, though in general I more of a lurker than a poster. If that's a crime, let me be guilty.

    I promise to post more though. Hopefully by the time I have been registered for 1 1/2 years, I will have burned up the forum with over 50 posts like you

    Here's my take.

    There are plenty of clothes for tall people who are fat.

    There are not, however, plenty of clothes for people who are tall and not fat.

    Really? I find it's the other way around, for some reason there seems to be a belief that fat people are all short - if you try to find 40" jeans, the inseam is always 30 or 32" which is a good couple of inches shorter than I would like it.

    Same goes for t-shirts, they're just not long enough considering they have a big pudge to go over as well.

    Wear the spandex. Be proud. Baggies are expensive and a weight shift of 5# can easily render them unwearable.
