looking for xxxl jerseys, bibs...

Posting this here because we are all clydes and it wouldn't do much good to ask in the "small people" section. LOL.

Im looking for some bibs and jerseys. Cant afford to buy them new, but would be willing to buy some from you guys if you had some that maybe didn't fit any more or you just dont wear them any longer...as long a they are CHEAP!

Im 5-7 and am around 280 at the moment. I wear 44-46 pants, have a 54 inch chest (think powerlifter). I wear a XXL-XXXL tshirt (I like my shirts on the loose side).

Anyone have anything that they want to get rid of, reasonably priced? Hook a brother up!

Love2Pedal has large sizes, great quality, awesome pricing and the best customer service. "CLYD" in the coupon code box gets a $5 discount.

Allen: You asked this question before (which is no big deal) but I tell ya..... the best place is http://www.aerotechdesigns.com/testimony.htm

Great sizes and quality.

Love2pedal is great. One thing to think about.... their printed jerseys run small. I bought some cool printed jerseys but had to return them and they were 5xl. But their non printed jerseys, liks this one: http://www.love2pedal.com/Items/Item...%20of%20Colors

Cant beat the price for two jerseys from the link about from Love2pedal. My friend ordered them the day I ordered my printed jerseys from the same place. His fit him great..... mine was skin tight so I will be buying the same ones from love2pedal.

I don't think Allen is looking for retail. That subject comes up so often around here, I'm sure he's seen all the recommendations, several times. He's looking for hand-me-downs (or ups) or discards, or a source for same.

On another forum I asked for hand me down bike shorts of a size that I knew I wasn't unlikely to be for very long. I was willing to pay for rough old shorts people kept forgotten about in their drawers. I ended up with lots of responses and got some for free and some for cheap. It turns out that my favorite shorts were a pair of Trek shorts that needed a small repair. I got them for nothing and fixed them. In the spring I will pass the ones that don't fit anymore along to others on that forum. I have a whole bag ready to go. This saved me a lot of money and hopefully will save some others some money too.

So I would encourage anyone who has ratty old bike wear to pass it along to Allen.

Allen, I could hook you up let me know if your interested. Just pay for shipping. I can do the postal flat rate unless you wanted shipped with something else.

I have a pair nearly brand new Top Shelf XXL Aerotech cycling bibs I no longer fit in and are just sitting on the shelf collecting dust.

PM me your contact email. I have less then the required posts to send you a PM.

Nice Allen,

Your gonna be in full kit come Tuesday! I'll be the weird looking wannabe in the bright yellow shirt I just picked up from Ross and baggy shorts.

One of these days, I'm going get me some of them shorts with a Chamois in it. Until then I just HTFU (hope I am using that acronym right) and sit on my left check when the right boy is blistered and vice-versa (or as my Indian economics teacher said, "Wisa-Worser")

I'm thinking about leaving the milk crate on the bike in case we need to do some hauling.

I have three pairs of Bellwether bibs that are too big for me, but they're only 2X. I'm not sure how that label translates to actual measurements.
