    Paying it forward -- free clyde jerseys

    (mods -- this was ok'd by Tom via PM)

    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.

    Thanks for doing this, adrien. I think it's awesome that you're making this offer! And congrats on the weight loss.

    Adrien,

    I live in Hyattsville, MD. I might be interested in one or more of your jerseys. Only 36 posts for me. Please PM.

    I'm like you, always purging my posessions. I Live in a 700 sq ft apartment and have no storage locker.
    What little space I have is taken up by one bike on a trainer, another bike, a Burley bike trailer, a bike rack for my car and misc items from my other outdoor pursuits.

    Even if it doesn't "pay forward" I'm always glad to pass things on.
    The one who has the most bikes wins.

    I PM'd you. I think this is a great idea and as I continue to lose weight, would be glad to pass on any jerseys that no longer fit. Very cool of you to do this and I hope it becomes a trend here on the forum.

    Thanks for the support guys. I now have two PMs and two interested-but-not-able-to-PMs. That's 4 folks for 6 jerseys.

    Those who have raised their hands, please let me know if you'd like 1 or 2, where to send them, and whether you have a preference (one is long sleeve, one is sleeveless).

    I will cover postage, no worries. Non-PMers, feel free to take up Tom on the pass-through offer.

    May you be blessed with continual tailwinds.

    If I ever get small enough to do the same, I will take your lead and do so. Nicely done!

    And I think this is a good sticky thread. Terms are, you are passing it along for free. You can ask for shipping or mailing cost only. No "For Sale"

    Okay, not that I have permission. . .
    I want to follow Adrien's lead.
    I have a pair of Performance Bike Ultra bibs I will give to someone. (I will even cover the postage.) (U.S. shipping only)
    I would prefer they go to someone who has never tried 'proper' bike shorts/bibs before. They are in almost new shape. I promise I have washed them and they are squeaky clean. They are 2X. I wear a 44 pant and they are a bit tight for me. I'm thinking 40/42 would be fine.
    I hate them, never really liked them, shouldn't have bought them cuz even in the store I wasn't crazy about 'em. But, there are lots of very positive reviews of them out there so it's probably just me. The problem for me is the fabric. My "Beloved Nike Bibs" are an incredibly smooth, silky fabric--apparently they are made from the donated skin from baby angel bottoms. My second favorite bibs the fabric is nice and silky smooth. The Performance bibs feel like they are made from burlap. (I'm almost 100% sure they are NOT, in fact, made from burlap.)
    Hit me up if you want them.

    ok guys -- current status:

    - info and addresses from myosmith and jackiechan; jerseys set aside
    - emailed asindc as passed along by Tom
    - pm to phred 59

    I think this will cover what is available. I will drop sleeveless into other packets unless someone explicitly wants one (they for great as winter base layers, BTW)

    Glad for the support -- I had no desire to start something, but I'll take it.

    This community has been wonderful for me. I tend not to over-personalize, but the advice on things like wheels, frames, winter riding and other has been great. I try to give some of the advice back (after about 30000 miles, 5 bikes cumulating with a dream custom build, lots of events and the like). This is just about purging the closet to celebrate my new jerseys (Hincapie Large!!!) and to try to pass on some of the karma.

    Great way to get outdoors and enjoy being alive, this wee sport of ours.

    Am i too late? Just recently got into cycling and it seems like every other day im dropping cash on bike parts. So It would be nice to get my first pair of bike shorts without dropping even more. I live in California, and i will more than happily cover shipping even though you said you would.
    Pretty great community here and i hope to soon be a part of it.
    Thanks a ton.
    Sorry like i said just started an account, and while i have a few posts in mind, nowhere near the 50 mark needed to PM. My email address is Calligan777@gmail.com

    I would love to send my old jerseys out to somebody but I got to looking at the old ones that were 4X and they have dry rotted and I wouldn't send these to anybody not really worth it. But I will keep this in mind when I go from 2x to just XL's

    ok guys. One jersey given away in-person at the weekend, and three packets on their way by USPS to the others who PM'd or emailed via Tom.

    Happy, safe riding.

    I have a pair of lightly used Specialized bike shorts. Squeaky clean! Move from shorts to bib and will be passing the shorts along as I get the bib's. They are XXL's.

    PM me!

    Hi Adrien - I am brand new to this forum and am very excited to be here. The first thread I jumped on was the clydesdale, lol.. Just what I was looking for. I'm also 6'3 and weighed 272 when I started cycling 4 months ago and am down to about 255. I'm looking for some good solid information on training advice for 50+ yr olds to lose excess weight. Any suggestions?

    thank you!

    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.
