Wouldn't that technically be paying it ​back?

I believe the whole "Pay it forward" idea is when someone does something nice for you you "Pay it forward" to someone else. So call it what you will. I'm calling it paying it forward!

I guess you're right, it looks like I misinterpreted the idiom. It means paying somebody else, rather than whoever you got the benefit from.

I thought the sense of "forward" was about giving first, seeding some good will into the universe and hoping for karma to get you back somehow later. i.e. forward instead of backwards in time. Which is what this thread is really about, it's guys giving away jerseys not because somebody gave them jerseys, but so that recipients will also give once they've lost weight.

Maybe semantics, or maybe richness of the English language, I choose B!

Wow. Does it really matter whether or not I gave or received first? I have a pair of bibs I no longer need that I am willing to give to someone that may need them. Call it what ever you want to call it. Makes no difference to me. I'm thankful to Tpcorr for his generosity and hopefully the recipient of my bibs will also be thankful and continue the trend.

Hi Folks. I've got a Sugoi Men's 3XL that I recently purchased from ebay. Thought it would fit like the Aerotech 2Xl Big Man's Colossal jersey.....it does NOT. lol. I felt like a squash stuffed into a condom and was afraid to breathe! Not sure how they come up with sizing ideas on these things. I'm new to cycling, so am still learning all this (and at an expense too$$).
Anyways, if someone would like this they can have it. I would LOVE to find another jersey that fit's like that Aero if someone has one or can point me to something. I'm 6'4 275#(<- I'm working on that) and I really don't like the skin tight jerseys lol. Maybe one day...but not yet...

Hello fellow Canadians,

I have moved on to smaller things and I have the following AeroTechDesign stuff to give, free of charge including shipping via Canada Post.
You can have any item or all three; shoot me a PM

Restricted to Canadians because you would probably end up paying duties if the package crossed borders.

27-OCT-2015: * * * ALL GONE * * *

I'm not Canadian, just wanted to say I like that they're called "Big Man". Also, for clarification for others, I only see two items, but you said three.

My wife sent the bibs out via USPS today. I have been tied up at work late all week and wasn't able to make it to the Post Office before they closed. You should have them by Saturday.

If you change your mind I would love to have these (new and not enough post to PM you).

I will gladly pay S/H.

Do you understand that you may end up paying duties too? I know the limits are different between the US and Canada and I would identify the shipment as a gift but Customs might still want its $
