    Not sure about the weight, but I think that Mazama has at least a couple inches on your height.

    You have some height on me...

    I am about 6' and over 25 stone... (350 pounds) and I find I can squeeze into the largest size of the Nashbar gel bibs. For jerseys, I forget where I found them, but I wear short sleeve or sleeveless in 4x or 5x (I forget which), or an Alert Shirt that comes large enough for me.

    I have several jereys that I look forward to shrinking into.

    No, not the biggest....

    6'2", 395...

    I am just getting into cycling (this is my first post here...good to see some of my type of people on this board!) and looking for a bike now...

    As far as larger cycling wear, check out www.aerotechdesigns.com...haven't bought anything from them yet, but their sizes go up pretty high...

    Good luck...

    I believe there was a thread a week or so ago regarding a fellow who was in the 600lb range looking for a bicycle. Mazama is a bit taller than you, and there are folks around here above 24 stone. So...your not alone here. Welcome!

    213 CM - 34 stone here. Welcome to the club, Pipsqueak hehe

    I had a stock 25" Trek 7200 that I rode for 2 years. It held up really well. I have since purchased a custom bike from Co-Motion Cycles.

    I get my clothes at aerotechdesigns. I'm not sure if they ship to the UK.
