Okay, catching up here...

@astranoc and Doyler
I will be in touch via PM to figure out how we can do this.

@Cory I just saw Czech Republic listed, so it should be there!

@sstefanov ... Same, I think Bulgaria is back in the list.

@NoiseBoy Yes, thanks for the note! I see what looks like every country listed in there, so I think the issues have been resolved.

Finally, for anyone else that is reading this and finds themselves in a country where the import/brokerage fees are too high with FedEx, consider using ShipITo.com or contact me if you'd like to see if I can gather your orders and ship it to you myself.

I'll be at Interbike through the next few days, I can also inquire anything specific with Jakroo sizing/fit if you'd like. Let me know.

Thanks!

Thanks to all (and Eric at Jakroo.)
The ship-to via FedEx option has been updated for me now.

Now just time to cross my fingers re: FedEx getting through customs cheaply.

I'm trying to decide on the standard or slim cut. I'm leaning towards slim. I have some castelli jerseys in large that fit me nicely, but there's some room. My favorite jersey (favorite fit as well), a demarchi contour pro jersey is a medium. Measuring it is a PITA because of the way the fabric is cut. As I mentioned before, I'm leaning towards the slim cut-- if anyone has any experience or can compare, I'd appreciate your help/guidance.

I'm in the same boat as mdeth. I'm going to get S bibs and jersey, but can't decide on standard or slim cut. I have a Castelli team jersey (from 2011) in medium that fits well; don't need anything slimmer than that. I also have Giordana body clone jersey, which might be a large, that also fits well.

With American clothing companies these days it's so hard to tell if the sizing/cuts are real, or vanity. (And I'm American, so not a US-bashing comment.)

After much measuring and re-checking, I ordered a medium in slim cut. Hoping it fits well.

OK, ordered medium aswell, but I'm 190 cm and 76 kgs.. ;-)

But I must say I really, really hate cycling clothing that moves in the wind...

Hey, prendrefeu, it looks like you are back with us. Have you got any news on bib measurements front? :)

Embarrassingly, I didn't get the measurements and totally spaced on them. :oops:
I'm asking Jakroo specific things, so what exact numbers are you looking to get measured?

Having worn the small bib, I don't think the cuff width is an issue. It certainly wasn't as big as the waist opening and the fit was really nice, not too tight, not loose, and this is coming from someone who normally wears a medium in Capo/Castelli. I don't have massive thighs like a track sprinter, but they aren't skinny like WIggins or a Schleck either.

Ok, I can just go with S bibs based on your hands-on experience with them, I guess they'll work fine for me. However, if Jakroo provides a chart with 'real' measurements of waist and cuff it might help someone else.

Just ordered the jersey+bibs! Very excited to get this kit, from the measurements I went with a S *pro fit* jersey and S bibs. For reference I'm 5'7ish and ~125-130pds. I seemed to fall perfectly in the middle of the Small range :D

Also, have to say that design is pretty awesome, very happy with how it looks/turned out.
