I am struggling to find cycling clothes for the larger gentleman. I need a XXXL but looking in the local bike stores and the usual places online (eBay, Chain Reaction, Wiggle, Cell, Cycling Express, Torpedo7, Evans etc), I am struggling to find anyone that stocks XXXL.
Either they don't make too many cycling clothes in XXXL or everyone is big boned like me and they have simply run out of stock.
I did however come across these two site and wanted to see if anyone has purchased items from these sites.
They seem to be the only ones that have XXXL for all items. I am guessing that they are all "original" copies, but since I cant find anything elsewhere in my size, it is sort of the last resort for me.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
No, I haven't used those sites. Yes, they are fakes.
But I have used Prendas Ciclismo, who do have a good range in large sizes (up to 7XL) on legitimate gear and offer great service and prices.
You can enter your personal measurements on the checkout page so they can confirm the sizing you have selected is appropriate.

I gave away all of my 3xl cycling clothes to a forum member sometime last year, but I got most of them from Aust. Bicycle Clothing. They don't have everything in bigger sizes, but they have quite a lot. Check out the size guides at http://www.abcoutlets.com.au/shop/sizing
You can, however, just wear what you can get and let it hang out like every other big bloke does. It all comes down to the engine anyway. Remember, in a race with a skinny guy, he can never win. If he beats you, he only beat a fat bloke, but if you beat him, he got beaten by a fat bloke.
Also, keep riding and you'll be in xl soon enough.
I am 179cm and 100 +/- 5 kg (goes up and down). I can only get 2XL max anywhere. 2XL in BBB, Uno and Nalini just fit.
I suspect that asian garment manufacturers use a model where humans are never more than 170cm with narrow short chests and small shoulders and want clothing to be cling tight.
If you want me to give you a few gook up's, let me know. One supplier I have does XXXL for $9.50, another one has just come online for $7, the quality is definately worth the price and a bit more. It ain't $100 gear, but it ain't cheap and nasty!
