    Body Builder Shape = no cycling clothes for Dion

    I've been lifting weights and cross training for nearly 16 years. I was a competetive body builder at one point, trained in MMA - but my love for cycling, BMX and on/off road motorcycles has always been my passion. I'm built like a body builder and nothing is right.

    Baggy shorts are huge in the waist, but tight in the butt (I have a bubble butt).

    3XL jerseys are tight up top and loose on the bottom; short sleeved jerseys nearly cut off circulation around my biceps. Oh, and in the real world, I wear XL. Try a XL jersey and I might as well be taking my blood pressure with that jersey!

    It's like the thigh-to-waist/shoulder-to-waist ratio doesn't work with cycling clothing for people of my shape. I don't know if I'm alone in this... I doubt it.

    I like training and my body is just this way... I look at a weight and I grow. I don't like loose fitting cycling wear because I don't like flapping in the wind - but at this point I just don't know anymore.

    bib shorts are your friend. no sleeves to restrict your movments. if i can shoe horn my gut into them and still have it tight enough for the gauds you should be able to as well. then you can find a jersey , compression shirt, or what ever you wore while lifting up top.
    "If you never suffered from over training then you've never trained hard enough"

    Some days your the windshield and some days you are the cyclist. either way it doesn't look like its going to be a good day for you.

    I have bib shorts, but I really like the look of baggies (usually I wear a pair of regular shorts over the bibs). I have a pair of Fox shorts I wear all the time... I'd like to find something similar.

    I've got the same problem with shorts but it seems to be the same case with all other pants.
