After reading a few threads on gear I've decided to up my budget. I was aiming for about 1500 bucks but now I'm thinking up to $2500. So far I'm guessing about $700 for the helmet and the rest on jacket, pants, boots, gloves and back protector. I've had a few good stacks on my pushy, including three months with plastic skin on my right leg and arm, and that was only at 30-40km/hour. There is no way I'm going to cheap out with the risk of a high speed fall. Also, I'm a 6'2" heavy built (weight lifting, etc), slightly overweight guy (I'm in IT). I have huge legs and I'd look absolutely ridiculous in tight fitting bike gear. Anyway, down to questions. What gear would people recommend for that budget? Cheers, Dan EDIT: I found Flyin' Brians Deals mentioned in one of the threads. Anyone know how much cheaper it works out to be from retail?
