There. I've admitted it: I'm a Clydesdale. I guess it sounds better than fat.
But I'm wondering what the best bike shorts are for us heavyweights. I picked up a pair with gel padding at my lbs last week and it just didn't do the job. And the amount of padding in the chamois versions varies greatly.
I'm looking for well padded shorts.
Hmmm... while I'm at it... how about jerseys that don't make me look like a sausage stuffed into spandex? I take an XL in a regular short but with a bike jersey, I need XXL. But some XXLs are far from REALLY being XXLs.
Recommendations... sources... anyone?
I won't have these problems when I lose 50 pounds but that's going to take some time and I'd like to avoid total humiiation if possible.
