    Cannondale Surpass jersey fit

    I just got my new Cannondale Surpass jersey and bibs. I just tried on the jersey. I know it is supposed to be pretty tight, so should I not worry that it feels like I'm wearing a shirt from the baby gap? My other jersey is looser fitting, but I just can't tell at what point it is too small. I ordered the jersey from the UK, so I don't have a chance to try on a large to see if that fits better.

    By the way, I'm about 6'1", 180 lbs. The jersey is a medium, my normal shirts run between large and medium.

    If it feels too small then it's probably too small. I think Cannondale's sizing runs closer to Euro sizing rather than American. We're about the same size (6'-1" 175) and I where a Euro size 4 (Large) and a medium in American sizing. You'd probably be more comfortable with a large.

    I tried it on again with the bibs on too (I really like the bibs). The jersey is very snug, but am I correct in thinking it is supposed to be very snug and not baggy so that it is more aerodynamic? It feels tight, but perhaps I just need to get used to that?

    IME, C'dale jerseys and jackets run small. I've never tried their shorts.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    Too small

    I'm not aware of any cycling clothing where a medium would be the right size for someone 6'1" and 180 lb. You're a large, baby!

    'Dale shorts

    I'm 6'2" and 229 lbs (and losing) and I'm just happy to fianlly drop down to a Large sizes. I haven't tried their jersey's or bib's but I am a fan of their shorts. I like that they are a little longer in the leg and their sizing (XL) was/is snug without being tight. I like that!
