    Can anyone recommend cycle clothing that is suitable for the larger frame. I have found Nike to be pretty good but on other brands even xxl seems to be very snug. Any suggestions welcome, apart fron the lose weight you fat bloke type!!

    I have found that Altura stuff fits me (1.85m, 100kg) OK, as does Wiggle's dhb brand, but of course dhb Large == Altura XL in bibs at least. Altura does an XXL which suits my shoulders for jerseys and jackets.

    Well avoid anything Italian (which I buy cos I is a short skinny wretch). Anything American is supposed to be good for the larger sizes I understand.

    Hincapie go up quite a bit (they cater for the American market after all). And don't listen to their claim that they are an athletic fit, I find they are generous if anything
