I'm so bummed! :(

LOL, well I'm a clydesdale rider, 230lb, 6'0" and basicly shaped like a PEAR For several years now, I've been using the "Classic" line of bike clothes at Performance Bicycles. Excellent price, nice looser fit, I prefer plain colored jersey's. Now they've done away with the "Classic" line for what they call the, "Club" line, it SUCKS, I bought a XL jersey and it fit's like a med., it's tight and uncomfortable and of course more expensive, RATS!

Now I'm in search of new maker of bike clothes for "non-skinny racerer boys", anyone got a line on bike clothes that have a more relaxed fit??

Interesting. Big companies generally follow market trends. Surely big guys like us still make up a substantial portion of sales.

I'm 5'9 170 lbs and need XLG. Large no longer fits me WT-FIT. I have been a medium my entire life now I'm XL. It's frustrating for sure. I think that cycling gear is morphing over to European sizing for some reason. I am used to getting cycling shoes in metric sizes now I need to alter my clothing sizes.

The Canari line of jerseys are pretty loose fitting and larger than normal. I got a few of them from Dick's Sporting Goods and their medium jerseys fit me like a large tee-shirt would fit. The ones I have seen at Dicks are also fairly plain and usually single colored jerseys. At $30.00 ea., they weren't very expensive but seem to be fairly well made.

Louis Garneau seems to run big, an XL should fit u right. Nashbar has some decent prices when you catch a sale.

LG has a couple of different fits, so be careful if ordering online. I have a medium and an XL from different LG lines that both fit me fine.

I've bought Aerotech Top Shelf cycling shorts in large and they fit my 5'11" 230 lb frame comfortably. I have average proportions (fairly even top to bottom).
