Does anyone know how the LG sizes compare to the sizes for the Carvalho tri stuff from a few years ago?


08/10/2012 at 17:06

oh, I don't know whether to do the same as brit now

I am going to go to evans when I get a chance as they have LG stuff in there, so I can try some on and see how it is. With a tri top, you don't want it baggy as in the water it will really slow you down, in a pool that is, under a wetsuit wouldn't matter

I would say quite poss Carvalho is a bit smaller than LG ... but not by much

Go a size bigger than you would usually is my advice

I am thinking medium all the way, I know from meeting IronCat what size he is, so can compare and my monaco is a snug medium but large would flap around too much and small would rip as I put it on. Mathschhick I am size12/14 if that helps.

steady, thanks - that does help. I am not quite down to a size 12, but should be after I lose a bit more flab. I am a bit large busted - does that make a lot of difference? Mind you, they will get smaller too as I lose a bit more weight

I think Barlos might have read his job description wrong ...

08/10/2012 at 17:58
It's not that he has read it wrong; it's that he hasn't read it at all

I think you are on particularly dodgy ground as well 

08/10/2012 at 18:38

Ladies - if it's any help - I have a small cycle top and cycle jacket which are both quite roomy for a 34 - 36" bust and an xs monaco which is a snug fit but wouldn't want to be any bigger for swimming in.

I shouldn't have come in here - I'm being tempted by the thought of a gilet - any one know how they size compared to the cycle tops/jackets?

Its not the same as that, slightly different.

This is the Monoco link which was sent in the email circulated to all those on the kit order by the Kit Commander In Chief

On behalf of Schmunkee, can I remind everyone to read the details/instructions that have been sent out by email 3rd October.  All details are covered in the email.

I've read all the emails and thread posts carefully, but this will be the first time I have bought expensive clothes without trying them on and with a 'no returns' policy, therefore I'm being careful to get it right.

I've been a bit naughty, therefore, and have ordered above item from a certain chain of bike shops to try for size - can get an idea of fit then get a refund for a fraction of the cost of travelling to the nearest store. (That's me showing a bit of initiative!!)

I was thinking about doing the same Brit!! I would be gutted to order a load of stuff then not be able to wear it
