    Cycle-Monton.com clyde sizing?

    Has anyone ordered some jerseys or bibs from here? I am wondering how the sizing is? run big? run small?

    I know these are going to be "knock offs" but I would like to get a cheap jersey for myself and my father in law.

    I really like this kit-

    It's possibly the same stuff, but I've bought a heap of jerseys and a couple a pair of shorts and a set of bibs from http://www.cycling-monton.com/

    The sizing matches some other stuff I've purchased from here in Oz. There's a very slight variation in sizing, and the sleeve cuffs come in either elastic or race cut snug fit style (no choice). The quality is just as good as other stuff I've paid a lot more money for. For the pants/bibs, I wouldn't get them if you intend doing longer rides. They don't suit me for that purpose, and so they get some use on the trainer or at the track where comfort isn't such an issue due to the short times on the bike.

    For the price for jerseys, the Chinese stuff is pretty hard to beat!

    I'm 6'5" BTW and was hitting the scales at about 125kg when I got the stuff initially and 3XL fit well. Not too tight and still ok now that I have slimmed down a lot since then. I'm still 115kg but have lost heaps of fat from my torso. I could almost hit 2XL stuff now, but might stick to 3XL to not sacrifice any torso length. They have a pretty good selection of stuff and my sister has just bought a heap of things from there too.

    The long sleeve stuff from them is the best I've encountered (I haven't splurged on any expensive euro stuff though). Best meaning the sleeves are actually long enough to not end up half way up your forearm when you hit the drops! I have other Chinese origin long sleeve tops from other local and overseas sellers that all have the same short sleeve problem. Ok when you're standing, but once you reach to your bars they're basically 3/4 long sleeve tops!

    awesome. im 6'4 about 125kg. I wear a xxl tshirt..but based off their measurement chart I would be about a XXXXL. so im not sure about what size to order. Everywhere I read it says to order up a size but their measurements aren't consistant with that.

    This is a pic of me with a 3XL Monton jersey from a few weeks ago. I was probably around 117-118kg when that was taken. You can see it hanging a little loose under my chest. I reckon you could freely go with 3XL

    I wear 2XL tshirts. Your US (typically Mexican made I think) are a bit larger than our 2XL. I have a few 2XL US tshirts from a visit over there and they're loose on me, but not loose enough to go to XL. XL I would fit, but I like a looser fit. For the record I've been wearing 2XL since I was way up at 150kg when I was doing powerlifting stuff at uni.

    I like the bike, it's really nice and stiff. If looks like a kid's bike under me, but that's Felt's largest 61cm frame!

    Sweet! I think I am going to order a XXXL jersey from the website and see how it goes. Did you order bibs also from there?

    I ride a Cannondale CAAD 10. Had it since march and love it. Its my first road bike so im just getting to buying proper shorts and shirts for riding.

    I have a set of 3XL bibs from them and they're too big. They're too loose to be comfortable for road riding, but they do get to see some use on the trainer and track, although I've got many other sets that I use in preference. I have another set of bibs from Mupi that are 3XL and would be equivalent to a 2XL from Monton. BUT I have a set of 3XL Monton shorts(not bib) that are much tighter and I tend to use them on the trainer so I can go shirtless to aid in cooling.

    If you are considering riding anything longer than about 30km, then I would just look elsewhere for a better quality set of bibs. The chamois in the Chinese stuff just isn't up to the same standards as the better known brands. After extending the length of my rides, I learned the hard way that quality counts in that area. I have a mix of bibs from Campagnolo, De Marchi, Pearl Izumi and Castelli. Hands down the Campags are the nicest, but they haven't made them since 2012 and I can't find any more left anywhere. The PIs are XL and were a bit tight initially, but since I've been losing fat, they're becoming better but a 2XL would have been a better fit. I just played on them being a bigger fit and lost that bet. The Castellis are nice and run second to the Campags, but more expensive than the others. The De Marchis are just good bibs. Nothing uncomfortable, but not quite as good as the Castellis or Campags under my hefty butt.

    I've purchased all of them at runout prices in out of/end of season sales. I have snapped up mid to high range bibs for around half the retail price, and typically cheaper than the lower range models.

    Thank you for all your help and information. as of right now my weekend rides average about 30km. I might order a bib set from cycle-monton to check them out(too cheap to pass up) and then will prob save up and invest in a good pair as my next purchase.

    I'm curious as to what size waist pants you are? Im figuring i am going to be a 2XL bib because I'm about a size 40 in levi jeans.

    I'm currently riding in a set of my mountain biking shorts with the built in spandex shorts and pad. They are ok but the padding isn't very good.

    I'm wearing size 42 pants. I need a belt to keep them up though.

    Like you said, for the price they're definitely worth a try. I have found that bibs can feel different depending on your saddle, so they may even be fine for you.
