Tell me where a good on bike clothing store is near western CT

I'm long in the arms and legs as well as skinny and am having troubles finding clothes that fit properly. I'm willing to ride a ways to try them on but would like to keep it within an hour or so of 06776 if at all possible.

Only cycle gear is somewhat close but I'm not impressed with most of what they sell.

BMW is near but $$$$. I have the summer iii pants for now which fit great in size medium but I'm not very confident they will do much in a crash. The armor is tiny and I don't like the idea they are loaded with cotton.

clothes

take a ride down to Philly and go to Twisted Throttle. They stock most anything. The Olympia line is nice and Max BMW in Brookfield stocks. They also ordered my a long BMW jacket, but you are correct; it is a little pricy.

Agree with the Twisted Throttle recommendation, but you can skip Philly & just run over to Rhode Island. The mother store is in Exeter, R.I., not far off I-95. Not sure where you are (in Fairfield Co.?) but I'm pretty sure the R.I. address is closer to you than Philly.

Philly would be Revzilla not TT.

Both have good customer service. TT probably has the largest in-store selection whilst Revzilla has a huge mail order selection.

Yes, go here. They don't have a huge selection, exactly, but decent enough, and they have more sizes for what they do carry and it is better quality stuff than Cycle Gear in Manchester.

There are some nice roads this way, so make a nice day trip out of it.
