I have a pair of bike shorts 4X from Aero Tech Designs (for big men) that have lasted me two seasons and good for another. Their site has up to 5X.
I'll have to keep those sites in mind. Since I only ride a few times a week I don't need a lot of gear and having had to return a few items online I'm fearful of just buying online based on size anymore.

I love my Canari bibs and shorts. I wear a large with a 36-38" waist but I have massively muscular thighs and like the compression. The large fits just tight enough that it isn't bothersome, I prefer a tighter short/bib for the compression aspect of the shorts.

I sent on my old pair of XLs to Wyored so I hope they continue on in their legacy of awesomeness! Along with the Canari liners I sent too.

All of the jerseys have been delivered but I still have a few pairs of shorts available:

2 pairs with gray flatlock stitching on top of black lycra
1 pair with red flatlock stitching on top of black lycra

These are the Falconi bibs in size XL (= 36-38" waist). The my previous post for a complete description, then PM me if you're interested...

I found a nice pair of bike shorts for a friend on Amazon (4X-and he's bigger than me) for $19 & change (plus shipping). Similar to the $39.99 shorts from Aerotechdesigns (quality stuff). Dunno if Amazon still has them, might have been a summer sale. I'm still waiting for a set from China ($23) from ebay. Ordered Oct 7—got the 4X long sleeved jersey today (Oct 24 [18 days]—fits okay). Still waiting for the long tights. Gives a whole new meaning to "Slow boat from China".

I think I should have gotton the XL and not the XXL. I wear around 38-40 waist and they XXL seems to be a little loose in the fit. It's odd because the XXL shorts fit good, but the bib seem bigger in the legs. I hope they shrink a little after the first wash if not I may have to get a pair of XL instead. Odd how the same company now seems to have size variances between bibs and shorts

Yours for price of postage.
(small USPS Flat Rate box)

I think the label says 5X, but it's kind of faded. It's had a lot of wear, but has a lot of wear left in it. It fit me when I was at 250ish #, but is now a tent on me.

There is only one condition. If you live in Texas, you must tell all your friends it's not "Cali"

These were originally $65-70 jerseys featuring 100% polyester fabric, 3/4-length zippers, and 3 back pockets. Primal says their XL fits someone with a 44-46" Chest, 180-210lbs, and 70-76" tall. These jerseys all have Primal's more generous "sport cut" so they won't fit like a sausage casing if you're near their recommended measurements and relatively proportional. All of these jerseys have been used. Some of them have been well-used. But, as far as I can tell, they're all in great shape. I'd be wearing them myself if they still fit!

Fabric care is simple: wash them in cold water, on the gentle cycle, then hang to dry.

Pictures here: https://imgur.com/a/0nmMI#6

Want any? Send me a PM with your requests in priority order. I'd like to "share the wealth" with as many people as possible, which might mean that you end up with your second or third choice. If you don't list something, I'll assume you're not interested. Depending on the interest you might get one jersey, more than one, or nothing.

Once I know where everything is going my plan is to, quite literally wad the jersey's up, drop them in a padded envelope and then ship them as cheaply and conveniently as I can. That probably means using USPS, though both FedEx and UPS are more convenient for me. I'm assuming shipping will be relatively inexpensive. If not, I may ask you to help cover the costs.
Thank you...........

Uh...as it turns out the order was for the jersey only. I mostly wanted the pants. Nice long sleeve, I'll keep it. The entire set was only $44. Ordered different long bike pants (I think they're fleece lined winter lycra)-$22.50 in 4X (Asian). I'm a 42 waist. There's a lot of good stuff on DHGate.com, same stuff they sell at high priced sporting goods stores for 60-80% less. My Wolf Bike jacket was $16 and change. The identical jacket at Scheels is $129. No Way! I'd rather spend my few $$ on bikes.

It's not a jersey, but I have 8 tubes, 700*18/25 60mm stems from when I had some deep rims that I no longer have and I don't like the extra length on my current rims. If you want them pm or quote this post. I think I got a buy 10 deal a few years back and never ended up using them as luckily, I had so few flats. Knock on wood...

Still have it. I don't know what the post count needs to be for PM, but you can't be that far from it. PM me when you get there.

The best way to get someones attention is to "reply with quote" Depending on the users settings, they are more likely to get an e-mail notification. I got a notification that this thread was replied to because my settings automatically subscribe me to threads I post in. Not everyone does this.

It takes 50 posts to enable PM's. WyoRed, you could leave a visitor message on CC's profile, but that's public, and some people don't like to put that stuff out for the world to see (though it can be deleted later). If you want to do this, click on CC's name, then View Profile. Otherwise, get active in a few discussions and get that post count up!

Here are a few... I'd ask for some $ towards shipping, or would be interested in straight up trades for XL or L "club cut" jerseys (L fits snug, I could use an XL for more casual rides). I tend to prefer red/yellow colors for visibility, but I really like silly jerseys Or, beer jerseys... I think I could stuff all 3 into the small priority mail box... but I'd prefer to help out as many BF members as possible

ALL are XXL. The Canari was bought new by me, the other two were used "freebies" from a generous BF member!

Spoken for currentlyRails to trails/silver bullet is an XXL Gore brand. VERY similar fabric to the Performance jersey, and similar to my newer Primal wear. Fits the same as the Performance XXL. Standard 3 pocket rear. Used, but in great shape!

SPOKEN FOR!Desert Motif is a Performance Bike XXL. I wore an XL t-shirt and this was super comfy, not tight, not too baggy. Super cool fabric, keeps you comfortable and dry. Standard 3 pocket rear. Well loved jersey, but in really nice shape!

GONE! Canari "Sport" XXL jersey. This is probably better suited for a true XXL t-shirt wearer. Its really a loose fit, It fit me at my heaviest (5'8", 230+lbs) very comfortable. This is a great jersey, keeps you cool, wicks sweat, very light. The black mesh back helps keep your back cool. It has a central rear zippered pocket...useless but for a house key it would be great, actually. ONLY worn maybe 10 times. This one shows no wear at all, again I bought it new, in 2012, I think.

You're welcome! You should get many many miles out of that jersey!

Enjoy and take care!

I have a pair of 4XLT Aerotechdesigns bibs, 4XT tights and three 4XLT jerseys (1 long sleeve, 2 short sleeve). Would love to find a Clyde who has gone the "wrong direction" to trade with... I need 2XLT... American size, not Euro size.
