Looking forward to the sizing etc so I can think about the skinsuit, should be sweet for CX season next year, oh and maybe some short road races too

Looking forward to ordering. Is there any demand for some winter clothes? It's entering that time of year soon so plenty of folk won't see any opportunity to wear the short sleeve top till spring.

Great work by prendrefeu. I appreciate all your efforts.

So, I have the shop link, tested it out - and it works great.
Here it is, if you want to jump in
http://shop.jakroo.com/Weight-Weenies

I haven't updated the first post just yet, but I will in about an hour or two from now. I'm manually converting their sizing charts to metric, it's taking a bit of time.

I should have another post here in a few hours as well as updating the first post with all the information.

Thanks!

Great! Still I am so unsure about my size. 183 cm/ 73 kg. I think M on the jersey... I want the middle model.

I recommend allowing at least a month. Not everyone checks this thread, let alone this forum, on a near-daily basis.

Well done Prend, fantastic job on all of this(especially putting up with some of the comments & accusations). Thanks for doing it!

Thank you. :)

Just in case, because it happened to me:
*****If you placed an order in between the first announcement and when the store's order period was extended, you may need to place your order again as the store was reset******

Prendrefeu, since you had a kit sample, how stretchy is the jersey? Assos ss.13 can stretch pretty well, I wonder if you can compare to it.

The jersey had three different fabrics on it...The side panels could stretch the most, the front and back panels could stretch a little, and the arms were a different fabric but also had the same stretch ability as the front/back. When I say "a little" I mean it seems to have just a little bit more than the usual amount of stretch for the average jersey.

I haven't worn or tried an Assos ss.13 jersey, but a local shop does carry Assos. I'll stop by the shop tomorrow so I can make a comparison.

Did we crash the shop? It was working fine, i went off to measure my Jersey and when I came back the link didn't work.

I tend to wear italian Jerseys because they fit my body type, namely Vermarc and Campagnolo. So I think I ought to go for the Slim cut? I have the upper body of an 8 year old but don't want anything ultra-skintight. I hate sizing from charts!!

The server may be slow with influx, but I think this will go back to normal speed after a while... besides, we do have a month.
Thankfully it keeps things in your cart, so you won't have to start over when you do eventually connect.

Sizing is tough, I'm sure many of us also dislike sizing charts but at least this one is a bit more informative than the usual chart you might see with other custom orders. The first post does have a bunch of dimensions that could help you decide.

This might be completely helpful or not, but here is where I personally ended up:

Voler -> Small Race Cut jersey, Medium Bibs, ??? Arm warmers,
Capo "Super Corsa" line -> Small jersey, Medium Bibs, S/M Arm Warmers
Jakroo -> XS "slim" jersey, Small Bibs, Small Armwarmers, Small/Slim Vest, etc:.
