    You guys were bike close when you ride? Where do you get them? I ware some Performanse stuff. I don't really like jersies though. But Performance XXL fit me, but after a few washes, they are a lil snug. What do you clides ware that is comfortible in a jersy?

    Also shorts? I ware Pearl Isumo XXL and they fit good enuff. But I tired Performance and even the XXL shorts seem small. What shorts do you ware? I need something a bit bigger cause we all know it's try what they say about us clides!

    I've used XXL Nashbar, Cannondale, and Specialized bike shorts with happy fit and results. One crash I had skidded me along the pavement on my bottom - NO ROAD RASH! The bike shorts kept me from losing any skin! I'm sold on using bike shorts when I ride.

    Bike jerseys, I've never liked - they make me look like a sausage. I ride with loose T-shirts instead. With a "tall" T-shirt, it is less obvious that I've got the bike shorts on, too.

    So far as I know, nobody makes XXXL bike shorts. What a shame - there sure is a market!

    Sorry, had to be done. I'm no Clyde, just a visiting featherweight, but I have a few Clyde friends and they look good in some of the retro-styled wool Jerseys. I can't tell you what brand they've got, but check out the Portland Cyclewear and Rivendell jerseys for a start, they've both got XXL. Wool seems to look a little more forgiving on bigger guys, but I can't tell you from experience.

    One alternative to the Bike Jerseys are joggers jerseys, they may be available in a larger size range, and often are quite a bit cheaper, as much as half the price cheaper.

    I wear full kit and find Pearl Izumi and Descente brands to be a bit more clyde friendly with sizing. More American sized, if you will. Having said that, the size charts of cycling clothes seem to vary greatly, so find a brand or two that works for you. World Cycling Productions has pretty good charts.

    Poly shirts from Target or Alert shirts are about all I wear in the summer.

    +5 on this. I bought from 5XL to my current 3XL, can't go wrong with them. Another place I shopped is Col d'Lizard, they will custom make clothing in your size needs and many times with out additional cost. Had a jacket made to my size needs that was the bomb. They are highly recommended.

    T-shirt and a pair of riding pants do the trick for me. These are the pants I am talking about:

    I am comfy, and to me that's all that matters.

    +everything to Aerotech Designs. They've made some of the most comfortable clothes from all the way back when they were Schnaubelt Shorts, with just a table set up at the pre-ride shop 'n' swaps. (Got my first pair of Schnaubelt's at a century ride in Cleveland, so far back I don't remember what year.)

    As another poster mentioned, I like the poly shirts from target. I think the line is "C9".

    Also definitely check out Aerotech Designs. My next purchase will be a cycling bib from them.
