    Jersey Fit

    Does anybody else have trouble finding jerseys that fit? Some brands/styles fit in Large, some in XL, and many are too short in any size but XXL, which fits me like a smock.

    I realize that it is my fault for having a non-cyclist body. My shoulders are too narrow, my chest (and stomach) are too big (though my stomach is shrinking), and my waist is too long.

    I received a Primal "Lord of the Rings" jersey as a retirement present. It size Large, but is VERY tight and just barely reaches the top of my shorts. An XL would probably be a good fit, but of course REI no longer has anything but M and L. This might not be such a problem if we lived in or at least near a big city, but we're not.

    The difference between "Bold" and "Stupid"
    is often measured by the severity of your injuries.

    I understand what you mean.
    Cycling jersey's have a discriminitory style. Be skinny or be gone
    I wear a size XXL for my jerseys (european fit), and XL for the bibs.
    I'm not that big, 6'1 and 200lbs, but that's the way it is.
