It's okay I guess. Rather have this:

http://www.love2pedal.com/Items/Item...20XL%20to%205X
This one doesnt work damned censor.
or this:
http://www.theroaddiaries.com/?p=314

Or maybe this:
http://unattachedrider.com/

Although the last one might upset my wife a little bit.

I was having a little fun before, but I think I found the jersey that I really want to get.

I think this one looks snazzy and though I haven't spent more then $10 on a jersey yet I don't think I'd complain too much about the price. http://www.bikingthings.com/wowaprbije.html

This kit finally arrived!!! The bibs fit great, but the jersey is like a skin suit.

I believe the jersey is miss-marked as XXL though. There is just no way that the same person could wear these bibs with this jersey. They’d have to be shaped like some type if alien or something. I’m keeping my finger crossed that a replacement jersey, will fit a little better.

Pro cyclists are thin folks with wirey upper bodies. The jersey is probably correctly sized.

Well I tried on a Capo jersey at a local shop and the XXL, while snug, was certainly not skin tight. We'll see. If the second one fits the same way I've got a backup plan of a Mellow Johnny's kit.
