    I need a new tight Lycra cycling top but I can't seem to find any that won't make me look like a sponsor has thrown up on me.

    I'd be happy in black but my wife wants me to get a cheerful colour that will make all >6ft of me more visible.

    So any pointers? My current top is Nike 'combat' and I love it but it was bought in happier times financially speaking.


    P.s I already have some cycle chat bib shorts on order :smile:

    Spot on. My nearest Decathlon is 70miles away but I can see a trip in the near future.

    How's your sense of humour?

    Try "Foska"

    Or alternatively Primal Wear do lots of interesting stuff

    Tenn Outdoors, get one of their scafe shirts, £16 each and fantastic products, IMO.

    Indeed - much better than Endura in my experience (although I am sure others will disagree)

    Wow! Well out of my budget but very cool indeed!

    Sadly I look for like a slightly obese puppeteer, a bit like the fingerbobs fella.

    if you are slightly obese, then avoid black. It shows the bulges. You're better off with a prominent horizontal chest band with a mid colour around your tummy. Go for a 'knit' rather than a smooth material.

    Mrs Norm's idea is "if you are slightly (:blush: ) obese, then avoid the fridge and the chocolate and the cake and the crisps..."

    I prefer Dell's version. :thumbsup:
