Made for their audience. When something's meant to someone with low-single digit body fat and little to no upper body muscle, and to fit skin-tight at that, it's going to run a bit small. And elite cycling doesn't tend to self-select the Maggie Backstedts among us, so the traditional sizing only needs to accomodate a certain size body.solorider said:So, on the same day I buy a Nike running shirt that is a loose medium, I get a Craft Cycling jersey that I ordered in the mail. I know that these things run small so I ordered a XXXL.... Its too small.

Remember that cycling clothing is supposed to fit snug.
The sizing is wierd on the other end too- I think that it's silly that as a 6' tall guy I have to buy small shorts and jerseys to get stuff that isn't loose and flappy.
