FYI I'm 6' 250, waist in the 40-42 range, and the jersey fits snugly, probably the way a bike jersey should, but I just prefer looser.

And because I just received a jersey without paying any shipping, I will not accept any shipping to send this out (continental 48 please). You know, Mt 5:8 and all that. PM me an address if you're interested.
I only have 30 posts, so I can't pm. But I would be all over that if it's still available!

Received my jersey and they were exactly as described! Excellent condition, and your description of how they fit was spot on. I've never had a jersey, so I was a little scared because sizing is so different between manufacturers, these fit me perfectly! Thanks again, I am a member of many forums for various hobbies and this is hands down the best. Everyone is so helpful and the advice is spot on and not condescending. Love this place!!!!!

Excellent. I'm glad they fit. Yea I really like Mt. Borah jerseys. Keep your eyes out on their site, they are going to make a change to the rules on semi customer jersey, versus needing 5, you will be able to order singles. I emailed them a couple of weeks ago to ask a question and they gave me that little bit of info.

Lol, it is a bit snug (I think like it should) but as I ride more I'll be comfortable in it :-)

Wow.

I started this because I was emptying my closet, and I always loved that Canada Jersey. To see us up to 165 posts, and my original Canada Jersey now onto a new owner is very, very cool. Wear it well, be safe, and feel free to have an odd sense of humor while doing so.

:-)

What's ironic is that the thread was started to handoff too-large jerseys, which is how I got it from you, but I later got the larger (2XL) jersey and preferred that fit, so I decided to hand it off again because it was "too small". Not really, it was a proper fit, but I don't like the proper fit.

And it is a very nice jersey. Something about the quality of the fabric has a much softer, nicer feel than the few other jerseys I've tried.

I have a Nashbar bibs with gel pad size 3X in good condition. I wore from 327 lbs down to 310. I'm sure they would fit up to a 340 lb Clyde. They're clean and ready for use.

I have a pair of Canari cycling briefs with the gel pad (go under a normal pair of shorts) and a pair of Canari regular cycling shorts, I believe it was their Elite model or something like that but they are no longer around (spandex type), both XL and too big on me. Canari's sizing runs a little large anyway (IMO) Canari Cyclewear - Sizing

The briefs are rather old and the waist band is a little worn out but they stay up and still have tightness/compression to them. Size - XL

The regular shorts are in good condition, a little over a year old, the pad will roll up on one corner from time to time but it is Canari's Echelon pad (my favorite). I wore these from 272 down to where I am now (220) but they are too loose. Size - XL

Both are washed and chilling in my closet, good to whomever wants them, just pay shipping USPS.

If someone has a jersey to fit a 6' tall guy with a 50" chest (2XL) I would be able to use it and then pay it forward when I lose more weight. Lemme know.

Hello all. I'm new to road cycling, been riding my BMX bike on the road for a while and just bought my first road bike., and can use some advice. Been looking to get a road jersey but they all fit very snug. I'm 5'9" 230lbs. Usually wear L or XL in regular cloths. Any suggestions (or donations) on not so snug jerseys? I saw Aerotech but they start at XXL Thanks

First all welcome to the firm. I'm about 5-10 lbs lighter, but the same height and the Canary XXL fits me perfectly. They seem to be one of the few jersey's that use standard US sizing. I picked up an XXL Luis Garneau and I couldn't even get it over my head it was so small. I think it would normally be sized as a med in US sizing. I also picked up a Primal Jersey that didn't fit, but it wasn't that bad. I would say it's between a L and a XL in size, but again not an XXL like the tag says so whatever you do get know your chest size and see if you can match that to whatever you buy to avoid the problem I had.
