    Where can I get big and tall mountain biking clothing?

    Hey there,
    I'm as new as a noob can get and I'm sick of smashing my wedding wedding tackle on my saddle so I'm looking for Clyde sized padded bike shorts. I'm 6'2 320 and take a 3x. Any help would be much appreciated!

    Can anybody recommend a bike cap (not helmet) for the big headed? I need a sun cap for casual rides and dont want it to look like a benie perched on top of my massive Fred Flintstone head. The less dorkish the better

    I've been very pleased with the Love2Pedal bibs off of ebay. They're cheap and I just wear a cheap pair of shorts over them. I actually sewed the shorts at the back and sides to the bibs and they're perfect.

    I also have a pair of the Outlaw Bullet from Aerotech. They're nice but I found them to be a bit small and tight on the thighs. I'm a 42-43 waist and got the xxl. The problem I always have with these kind of shorts is the butt crack creep as they slowly move downward during a ride from the belly and the lower waistline.

    My latest experiment has been to take an old pair of Novara REI padded shorts and sew them in the cut off top of a bib. I bought a bib from Love2Pedal and put them both on and then sewed the top to the bottom and then went in and cut out the bottom portion of the bib (so I didn't have two pads in there). They seem to be working pretty well so far. They stay where they are supposed, so essentially they are an integrated, more comfortable set of suspenders.

    Nelson, I'm glad you mentioned the crack. I have the same problem so I'll definitely check out Bibs as well. Thanks
