Adrien, I got back from my trip today and the jerseys were waiting for me, thank you so much!

That's pretty much it. I've lost the weight I've lost (225lb so far) by counting calories. I participated in a medically supervised program that had me in a range of about 800 - 1200 calories a day. However, a calorie level that low is only safe with medical supervision. These days it's about 1500cal a day or so, but that may be why I'm stuck because with my newfound love of the bike I'm burning a lot more calories. I used to do about 2500 - 3000cal/week of exercise (estimated), but now it's a bit more. I may be deficiting too much. Also, after losing this much it's natural for things to slow down. I'm sure this last 25 will be hardest.

PM me!

I can't PM yet, but I'd love your Specialized shorts if they're still available. PM me if you can. Thanks.

Guys i have some virtually new...maybe worn 3-5 times aeroteck xl jerseys in both long and short sleeve.

I think i have red and yellow in short and red (i think not at home right now) in long.

These are in a tall however.

I just like a tighter fitting jersey. Even when i was 240 they didnt fit tight and now at 216 they really dont.

I am 6'5" and they were plenty long...if you are less than 6'2" i suspect these will be too long...of course if you are on the bigger side (i would guess if you are tall you could wear these up to 260

My guess from a coat size would be 44-46

You can have them if you just pay me the post office rate for a priority mail box

Pm me if you want them

Wow, Mark, that's awfully kind of you. You are quite welcome. PLease keep the postage to pass them on when they are too big for you!

Being an avowed comfort cruiser kind of guy (at least for now :)) I can't imagine myself needing any of the above offered kit anytime soon...well, anytime at all, really. But for the folks who are putting this stuff up and trying to keep it going, I say, "Good on Ya!" It does my heart good to see such generousity on display with no thought of reward.

I understand. It was worth a shot, but thanks for your kindness anyway.

Awesome act of generosity. I need to loose weight and join the crew. Congrats.

I am still a clyde, though now in the low 200s (201.4 this morning) after years in the 240s. I have purged the closet and have several used jerseys that I no longer, um, fill.

Free to forum clydes (via pm, please) are the following, lightly used and clean
- 4 performance / nashbar XL jerseys
- one long sleeved winter jersey
- one event jersey

All fit me quite well when I had a 39-40 waist. I am 6'3.

And finally, thanks to all in the community here.

That's pretty a cool gesture. :thumb:

Nice gesture!

I have a literally brand new pair if Giro Treble shoes in size 47. They are 100% free to the first taker. I bought them and then was generously gifted the shoes I really wanted but couldn't afford at the time. I don't post much but have gained an unreal amount of information and motivation from you folks. This is the least I could do. Lets get these gone!

Are these still available? If so, you won't have to ship them since I'm less than ten miles away. :)

Astrozombie 12-20-12 07:21 AM

Anything left?

Shoes now taken. :)

Just a reminder, folks. The intent of this thread is for people who are kind enough to give away items that they no longer need, want, or a have a use for. The thread's intent is NOT for a general "hi, I'm new here- here's my size(s), so what will you give me?" queries.

When an item becomes available and you are interested in it, be sure to quote the relevant post to avoid confusion as to exactly what you are interested in.

adrien 12-27-12 04:37 PM

Nice to see others running with this...

I have two jackets I'll happily send off.

One is a Gore, dove grey, with zip-out sleeves. 3 years old, two full winter seasons. Good 30 to 55 degrees.

The other is a Giordana silver line, orange, about 5 years old; also two full seasons. Good 25 to 50 degrees.

Both fit me well when I was 240-250, with a 17.5 neck and 36.5 sleeves.

PM me, please. I'm pleased to report that all my bike gear is now team fit...

I'm in the market for a jacket, and I've been to my LBS and a couple of local sporting good stores, and I'm having difficulty with sizing.


According to your post, you were around the same weight as I when you were wearing them.


I tend to carry most of my weight in the middle.


What size did you wind up getting? I noticed the Gore I tried on were really form-fitting.


I'm right between 5' 11" and 6' even, and I am between 245-255, depending on the scale. :)




Thanks for your help.

The gore was form-fitting 35 pounds ago. Giordana is similar; both XL. You want to look for something with a looser cut -- the opposite of team cut. I think Specialized and Pearl Isumi both make larger cut jackets.

I love where this thread is going and its always nice to see other clydes helping out. I hate to be that guy aforementioned above but I could use one of the cycling jackets if you still have them. Either one would be fine.

adrien 12-29-12 05:03 PM

Jackets now spoken for -- 10 wheels and black walnut. SMCclain I'll keep you in mind if either falls through.

Be safe all.
