Do my leathers fit? What is normal?
I went for a ride yesterday in my Frank Thomas leathers. My wife pulled them out of the closet before we went and remarked about how incredibly heavy they were. The pants are the same size as my jeans, but cut much tighter ( or so it seems ) because I have to pull really hard on the velcro strap to close them. The jacket restricts my breathing just a little and when I'm on my bike, I have to work hard to bend my legs to get them on my pegs.
That said, I have always figured that this is how it is for everyone. Your suit fits tight and when on the bike, its cut so sitting there feels okay. The pants fit tight all the way up my legs and are hard to get on, even with my slippery, superthin long johns. Once on, I'm not too aware of them until I have too really bend my legs.
So, the question is, does your suit weigh as much as mine?
Is it uncomfortable to flex your legs?
I am 6' 1" 200lb. Am I fat?
If I am fat, did I just buy too small a suit because they are cut too small?
My 2 piece has a 46US top. My chest is only 43", 46" expanded.
Should it feel so tight?
I have worn the suit for a total of 75 hours total. Is it broken in?
Do I just need a bigger suit?
Can the tailor/repairer who comes to Loudon for some of the races make my suit fit me better?
