    Source for Armwarmers for non-stringbean sized rider

    ...Not that there's anything wrong with being a stringbean. I'd love to be that thin. Anyway....Deciding to try to keep riding through the cool part of the year, and am looking at armwarmers. I'm having a hard time finding stuff in a size for me. I'm looking at about 34-36 cm for a bicep, and keep finding size charts that only go up to 17 or 24 or so. Any big brands out there? How much stretch do these things have? Thanks in advance =)

    Practically my entire kit at this point (both warm and cold weather) is their stuff. Fantastic products for the "non-stringbean sized rider."

    I've had a set of Craft arm warmers for 3 seasons now. I've always had big arms with good muscle surrounded by a certain percentage of cushioning that is getting less. I'm currently around 37cm and they're still great with no stretching of the material even after all this time!

    ^^^yes^^^

    Last winter I all of a sudden had severe pain in my knees like some was stabbing me with a knife and twisting it. Pain started in mid-late Nov and limited my riding. I rested thinking it was over-use ore something...and when I did the Rapha Festive 500 it was cold out (cold for So Ca) and someone suggested knee or leg warmers. WOW...what a difference wearing those made...I am a believer now.
    Move along....nothing to see here....anymore.

    Thanks guys, I was able to find some stuff in my size based on these recommendations! =) I have some longer pants, but I might try a knee warmer too.
