Re: Jubilee clips sizing

remember to factor in that you will be using something under them - rubber or some such that will increase the circumference -

40 mm for example range is 40-55

next is 30-40
I am sure there are others but stanchions will be 32 or 36 so tubes going to be 40-50 at a guess

Re: 3/4 lycra tights - options?

Not in your size :wink: [ and i have the same makes as you anyway] but do agree there does not seem to be a standard size for them If Merlin have anything in stick or Ribble cycles that suit i can nip in and measure for you as I can pass both going to work - Merlin much easier as i can cycle past it.
