    The Clyde's and Athena's Clothing Exchange ( A Pass it along thread)

    Have that cycling gear you've shrunk out of? If you want to pass it along, this is the place to do it. This is a freebie thread though......shipping cost only.

    If you place something here for passing along, then after it's gone, delete your post. All arrangements need to be done in PM, by the way.

    Good thread, Tom!

    I have some bike shoes, size 39. Brand: Diadora Lombardinos

    They are not* clipless shoes! They are made for toeclips. They have the nice rigid bottom on them, with a yellow slot for track pedals, but you don't need track pedals. Never worn, as I think they are a small 39. I also think my feet spread and now I wear a 40. Anyway. PM me if you want them.

    I know OT but what about combining this thread and the Clothing DB. It's getting sticky cluttered again and since the clothing db is one post it can always be the first one with all other posts being swap related (since you'll be trimming anyway).

    Add Zerie to the list. I have purchased a few jerseys from them. They are reasonably priced and have larger sizes. There are only a few items in their list but what they have is well made and functional too.

    It also occurs to me that trades could be done here. If you have clothing too small and need a larger size, you could arrange to do a swap here as well. No cash sales, though as that's reserved to the marketplace, but item for item trades can be done.

    You've got love2pedal's address wrong. Its love2pedal.com. I just ordered some bibs, so we'll see how they work out. Also, consiter adding Sierra Trading Post (sierratradingpost.com). They may not allways have clyde sized stuff as they do overstocks, closeouts, ect (they've got quite a bit right now), but you can usually find 10-25% off coupons plus you can almost allways get free shipping by answering a trivia question. They are found in their catologs, but you can find the current answers at fatwallet.com.

    The cycling brands Sierra carries are never American sizing. I like Sierra, but
    they get the 'usual suspects' and a clyde is never getting into that.

    You know what would be cool? If we had a database of brands on how their sizing ran.
    Of course, not all brands are consistent. But there are trends. Pearl Izumi does have some 2X stuff I
    can use. So does Beans. I think the Beans cycling jersey runs a bit large. If you don't have a big gut you can get away with an XL> I have never seen a soft shell that was larger than a XL even if the label said 2X.
    The Euro brands run a few sizes small. Giordana runs a couple sizes small. Ibex runs a size small. Sugoi shirts run a size or two small, but I have a 2x
    cycling pant by them which fits and is fantastic. Velowear runs small. I have a couple of their 2X jerseys I liked too much to
    send back. Maybe someday I can wear them. Some of the Smartwool 2X base layers work, but others are a bit small and short.

    Living Large XL and Junonia

    Two locations livingxl.com and junonia.com are pretty good for general items for larger folks.

    Living Large XL, has great items including camp stools and folding chairs that hold way more than 200 pounds. Some special bike seats that may be handy or not. Their hats and helmuts are designed for larger heads too. livingxl.com

    Junonia.com is primarily for women sizes 14 and higher. But there's no reason guys couldn't consider some of their items. Their sizes are very well documented. Guys may like their padded bike shorts or regular bike shorts. They should be pretty unisex for some items. Their service is out of this world and their stuff lasts forever! The quikwik and antimicrobial stuff might be of benefit depending on some folks personal preferences or needs. Is that polite enough??? Also, some of their shorts, including padded bike short shorts, tend to not have an inner thigh seam to avoid chafing. junonia.com

    I've been doing the swimming thing, but with fuel price direction, decided I could get extra exercise using a bicycle. Will be restoring my brother's old circa-1970 schwinn 10-speed to see if I can get into bicycling again. I have way more experience with stationary bikes! Also have some knee stuff, so figure I can trek my errands and back and forth to pool and accomplish two goals at once.

    Anyone know how fox sizes run? I'm looking to buy my first jersey, there is a Fox base sleeveless jersey in slate blue or red on performancebike.com. It is a loose looking fit, only $17.50. It's an XL, what I wear in T-shirts.

    Hello,

    You list lovetopedal.com in your clothing database. But the correct url is www.love2pedal.com

    I got a $5 coupon with my last order. It is good for $5 off any order (no minimum). You just enter CPZA into the code box during the checkout. Its good until the end of Sept.

    Neil

    It kinda looks as though you are doing some product placement here. I have to say, Under Armour's "Heat Gear" is just awesome. Super breathable, lightweight, and decently priced. The shorts go up to 2XL which will fit a 46" waist, and the shirts go up to 3XL and come in a wide variety of colors, styles, and patterns. http://www.underarmour.com/shop/mens/gearline/heatgear for the women, it's womens/gearline/heatgear

    I'd like to trade some athena cycling clothing, I have some junonia 4x things that I thought I could make work, since I like things loose, but they are just too big even for me. If someone has some 2x or 3x stuff I'd like to trade

    I bought a bunch of stuff from Sierra trading. Only to find out the hard way about the midget sizes. Here is my latest bike suit that my wife custom made to fit.

    I assume that's for riding in the winter? Very nice.
