Just started cycling this year, I never owned a pair of bib shorts. I tried on XL at the LBS and they were too tight. I want to mail order them. What size do you think I would wear, 2XL or 3XL. I'm 6' 0", 240 lbs., 42" waist and hopiing to lose weight from cycling.

Depends upon the manufacturer..I have found that there is not much consistency from brand to brand. In Nashbar or Performance house brands you's wear an XL with a 42" waist. In a Pearl Izumi you'd be a XXL.
