What, you don't want to see Jet Travis in his tight Pro-Fit jersey & shorts, with smooth, shaven legs???

I bid $8.

I know the feeling. I like the way on-line resellers list the chest sizes but not the waist. Sometimes I think the current biking apparel has passed me by. But then I think, what the hell, you only go around once.

That reminds me..... the rules for one of the rides I was thinking about doing this year said no alcohol or tobacco promoting clothes to be worn. And we thought we were getting too politically correct here!

I have a friend that to look at is of a very good build- Problem is that he is 6'6" tall. Nothing fits him. If it fits the Chest comfortably- it won't reach his waist and the Long sleeve shirts are up to his elbows. For his birthday- I bought him a Short sleeve top in XXXXL size- Fits the chest and as it is stretchy- it fits his waist (Which is expanding a bit with age) the length reaches the top of his shorts and he is pleased with it. In fact I quite liked the style so I went back and bought one in medium size- It does fit me but I will not be wearing it again. It does not wick moisture away and on last weeks ride- I felt cold.
Its not only size that varies on tops- the material will vary aswell.
