bike clothes for fat blokes!!

by stokeybloke   July 31, 2010  

Thinking Anybody else have trouble finding proper sized clobber for 'powerfully built' bodies? why does XXL mean 38" waist? - I'm sick looking round for stylish stuff which fits! I'm trying to lose weight, but can't find shorts ot tops to fit the more 'lardy' figure.

Decathlon tops in xxl are about right for my ~47" chest. They go bigger if you need it. £10 for one of those.

Endura shorts in xxl are good for 40" waist.

None of the above is tight roadie wear though, just mtb stuff that I'd also use on road.

Smile Thanks guys! I'm saddo really - looking for team kit, which only seems to go to 36" waist and 40" tops! But anything for cycling really - I do both road and MTB.
