    whats wrong with your platforms? dont think just because pros use them means you have to. for good shorts and a jersey you are looking at maybe $75 if you score good deals and for a ff maybe $100. id go to your lbs and see what is on sale.

    I would try some shoes on at the LBS. They may be able to work a deal out with you if you buy shoes and pedals from them.

    I have used the following online stores for equipment/gear all with excellent service.

    I am guessing that there is a site that is not allowed on this forum, so PM me if you would like to know the name.
    www.primalwear.com
    www.jensonusa.com
    www.pricepoint.com
    www.niagaracycle.com

    For shoes/pedals/helmet you are probably going to want to head down to your LBS and check these out. Shoes and pedals, they might be able to work a deal with you. Get a proper fitting shoe so that your feet do not become fatigued. They should also have jerseys that you can try on to get a feel for. I wear an XL T-shirt, and the XL jerseys fit me fine.
