Absolutely! I'm looking forward to a time when I have a chance to be on the "sending side" of this thread.

since you got the Canada one please remember to be extra polite, and oddly funny in a slightly off, quirky way when wearing it, eh.

I'll try to remember that. I have thought it is unfortunate that I have no significant connection to Canada to be wearing a Canuck jersey aboot. People will think I"m a loonie!

Rube...I wonder how many folks caught "all" of your Canadian references in there...

Ah, ok. All I have is 4X, not 3. I was thinking about a temporary 5X, just for some roominess.

Impressive thread here! Nice work folks.

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.

Not high enough post count, but I'd like to ask the OP Adrien if you still have any more jerseys looking for a new home? I just caught your post for the first time and I am also 6'2"ish with a 40 waist. Thanks either way.

Hi-vis light jacket and vest.

These are a bit big for me now and flap about in the wind when riding.

Both items from Uno, an Australian company with a wide range of basic/budget cycling gear. Made in China. Their website isn't working but I know that their store is still there.

Jacket - yellow and dark blue. Reflective trim. Mesh sides. Light fleece inside collar. Zip with velcro over flap. Pocket with zip. Size L. Measures 61cm/24in from armpit to armpit when flat (roughly a 48in chest measurement, a wearable 46?). Stain on centre back (near pocket) that looks to have been caused by being pressed up against some other dark clothing (odd pattern) when wet.

Hmmm...sending pm

Chitown_Mike 01-19-14 08:12 PM

I have the above pedals from Black Walnut to send to someone in the US via USPS flat rate box. I was going to use them but decided to out fit all my bikes with SPD pedals so they have no use for me. Never installed them just put them in the bike part cabinet.

IAMAMRA 01-20-14 06:45 AM

Honestly, for me it was mostly volume of food. Exercise matters as does muscle tone (especially core), but the key was keeping it to 2500 or preferably 2000 calories a day. I lost steadily for over a year, and then stabilized at a good weight (205).

Also: limited fried food, masses of vegetables, fewer carbs and fruit.

BTW: This is a very difficult thing to do when your significant other is a great cook. That is how I ended up at a max weight of 280lbs. Now down to 260 and with a full planned riding season just ahead I hope to be down to 230-240 by the years end. Slow and steady as they say.
Thanks,
John S
