    I don't like jerseys that constrain my biceps too much. I work hard for those things; I want to show them off!

    Boy I hear ya all!

    REI is the only cycling shop near me (Paradise Valley AZ). They only sell XL (& you are lucky to find that).

    I guess if you are fatter than they like, you are out of luck.

    REI is a very prejudiced company.

    Same problems with their sleeping bags.

    I have had major health problems (50# weight gain, unable to walk), from birth defects that caused early onset arthritis in my joints that manifested at age 44, so have been in a wheel chair for 5 years. I finally got 1 joint replaced April 2007 (Against Drs orders because I am too young).

    I have found REI XL, fits like a mens medium (like in my olden days). If you are size 38 waist, you need an REI XXL (but you will never find it there).

    By the way, I am finally riding again. I used to do 1/2 centuries 20 yrs ago (Apple Cider Century in Michigan, anyone know that one??)

    I am only riding 5.5 miles at 9 MPH , just started this week. Hallelujah!!!

    Maybe I could do the 25 milers again, at least I hope!

    I have a big waist and chest, but I don't have big meaty legs automatically because of that big waist. Most pants (bike shorts are designed tight, so not so bad) that fit in the waist are HUGE in the legs. Same with shirts, if they fit my stomach/chest, the arms are waaaaay too wide.

    Don't even get me started on the fact that shirts/jackets assume one length because everybody has the same size torso and all the length is in the legs. Us long torso guys (which seems to be common among Clydes, it seems) have most jerseys and jackets too short and always coming up to show gut or shirt underneath.
    Yeah, what's the deal with that? I mean, aren't cycling clothes supposed to be extra tall? I suppose I could wear bib shorts all the time, but dang, that's another layer of fabric when it's hot outside.

    Regarding bib shorts, I like wearing them, but have not been able to find any that are tall enough for me at 6'3". (can you say 'wedgie'?). Even a few inches added to the bib straps would be sufficient.

    Has anyone found bib shorts in tall sizes?

    CliftonGK1 is 6'4" or 6'5" and has bibs that he loves. I *think* he said he got them from Performance, but not totally sure. PM him and ask.

    6'6", actually... and I wear Performance Century Gel bibs. They're awesome, unless your height is all torso. I've got a 36" inseam, so my problems aren't in getting the length right on the torso. Most stuff fits me fine up top. It's tights and rain pants which usually fall about 3" short at the ankles.

    It's all right, I don't actually remember introducing myself either !

    I did the survey.

    I frequently doubt the validity of sizing charts. Thus, I tend to purchase only from those where I have verified the sizes in the past. Performance, Voler and Canari are on my regular buy list.

    If you are having trouble with length in your bibs and need some length ask around and find someone with a serger type sewing machine it's really easy for someone to do the correct stitch and add some material (or in my case remove some)
