    Rosborn,

    I have found that stuff from www.velowear.com is pretty accurate to their sizing charts. I have a club fit jersey in L and some bibs in L. Both fit me with 200lbs @6'0". Their race fit jerseys would probably require a XL.

    I did not read any of the posts so this may be redundant

    For the time being I decided to go with a pair of PI Attack bib shorts (XXL). The primary reason I went that route is because I know what to expect from PI. This is my first pair of bibs and I just needed that "comfort" level in knowing what I could expect in fit and chamois. As time goes on I expect to experiment with other manufacturers, especially Falconi.

    love2pedal - because of your generosity and the amazing stuff you just did in here, plus the quality of the items on your site for bigger people, I think my dad will be happy that you exist. I have passed your information on to him since he has had a heck of a time looking for clydesdale clothing. I will make sure I tell everyone who can't wear whippet sized clothing about your store, and you have great prices to boot. Cheers mate!

    Well, the Attack bib arrived. The chamois will be fine but I am concerned about the thickness of the material, not in the leg area or the groin area or the area concealed by my jersey. That leaves one area . . . . the rear end. I am afraid that butt cleavage may be quite apparent . . . . Thank goodness I have a jersey that extends to at least the top of the chamois.

    Umm, has anyone had similar concerns (butt cleavage showing through their bibs) with the deluxe Falconis?

    I think I just have the regular falconis, but if I recall correctly they both use the same cool-max pad. On mine the pad feels big in the rear, but take this with a grain of salt because I've never had bike shorts/bibs before. I certainly don't worry about butt cleavage with them.

    What I really meant was the potential to be able to see through the material.

    I have never had any complaints about the fabric being see through!

    For the Deluxe bibs, we can make those with three different weights of lycra and chose the weight in the middle to use for the bibs. It has a high thread count (for durability and elasticity) and is light and breathable. Most people would call this fabric lightweight, even though there is lighter weight than what we use.

    The only garment we use the heaviest lycra option (called 8 oz) is with one model of our shorts called the Vicino. We make it because some customers believe heavier lycra is preferable and want our heaviest option. I use our deluxe bibs about 3X a week and think the fabric is ideal--if it is see through, none of my riding buddies are telling me!
