Kromaxxx Klothing

Hello to all the, as I like to call them, Dinosaurs. Bigger than a Clydesdale but every bit as strong. I have been asked by one of you members to join this site to inform folks who are looking for high quality cycling clothes. I have designed a line of clothing with the bigger human in mind. Every larger man or woman who ventures onto a bicycle DESERVES to feel comfortable and fashionable.

I began my trip at 340+ pounds after brain surgery. You may have read about me in Bicycle magazine's sept 05 issue in the article entitled "Hey Big Fella" Today I am 100 pounds lighter; I am a very good bike wrench (I had to be, I broke so much crap), who builds his own wheels;and now teaming up with one of the industry's premier clothing manufacturers.

As a result of the magazine article, Champion System, top quality race apparel and retail supplier has teamed up with me as I begin Kromaxxx Klothing. Making us the first to recognize the plight of the bigger rider with regards to cycling wear.

Many clydes and other racers and club members may already know Champion System so the quality of the garments are already recognized. Now in sizes up to 8x with quality dual density chamois, the biggest riders on the planet can ride in the comfort and style the so richly deserve.

Designs are done and production is beginning. Being a grass root guy I would love for this line to go through bike shops but we will be up and running online soon. Ideally product would be available in time to give as gifts for the holiday season to big guys and gals who have been rightfully complaining about the lack of stuff that fits. My company logo is from ink on my are that has said it all for a long time. I am big, I am strong I am going to break stuff. Hopefully you'll be in my clothes when you break it.

Nice to meet you dinosaur. We've been talking about you ever since somebody brought you to our attention. When do you think you will have at least some pictures/descriptions up on the website?

Color me very interested! I've spoke well about the clothing I've been using already, from Aerotech and UnderArmor, but I'm open to new options. Let us know when it's available, and I'll be in line to pick some up

I'm Uber and looking forward to your big and TALL line of gear. Sounds like you will be ready for production about the same time I get my new bike (Christmas).

Interest from you all is what it's all about
We large cyclists pose an interesting question to the industry.
We say make it for us.

I live in the next town over from Ben's namesake. First public library in the US is there. I am working on fulfilling the need of many of us.
Think about the watts generated and torsional values tested when we get on the machine!! Ride on.

Once again thanks

I must say I am a little humbled by the grace and class by which another cylist is again welcomed to the neighborhood. I would ask your shop personnel to contact me. I am small but have attention to detail and a great manufacturing partner. Aint anyone with test models like I have
Ride well.
Your pic of you bike looks great. Kind of indestrucable. Like the ones I've spec'ed

Welcome aboard, dinosaur! Good to see another who got the cycling bug and lost a lot of weight.

Watch for a PM.
