Having had my legs out for the first time this year, the pad in my Specialized bib shorts seems to have gone a bit flat and the edge seams rubbing a bit.
They are 2 - 3 years old so time for a new pair.
What brands do women on here recommend? Some seem to cost silly money. Is it worth it?
I have a pair of Lusso carbon bib shorts size large. They only been worn a couple of times, as they are just a little on the large size for me. I replaced them with a pair in medium, and they are my go to shorts for 12hour+ audax rides. The pad is very comfortable!
I was given a decathlon gift voucher for christmas and was looking around for some tights but also saw some good bargains for the bib tights.
I have never wore bibs only waist tights.Surely if you get the wrong size(too big) won't that make them loose around the shoulders?
Sizing miles out, 4 inches smaller at waist compared to my current race fit Altura bibs in same size, leg over 2 inches smaller around opening
Lycra very thin.
Pad in wrong place, does not cover anything at the front end:blush:
No overlocked seams despite them being visible in the marketing...
Bought myself dhb flashlight bib shorts abouy 2months ago . Picked a size going by the size chart size large . I'm 5"9 13st. Thought they were a bit tight round the meat and veg area but overall a snug fit .
I went out today and tried on a few pair of different size dhb classic bib shorts and...
Now and then i see a guy on a TT bike in Richmond park ( i dropped him this morning :laugh: ) On the back of his blue bib shorts is GBR Aud . Any ideas if he is part of team GB or has he just bought some shorts ?
I have had enough of bib shorts not fitting correctly. I currently have Castilli and dhb bibs and although the material is snug on me, the pad is no where in the right place - comes too far past my sit bones and sort of sticks out the back.
A bike shop recommended me Endura FS260 Pro shorts...
Yes, yet another bib shorts thread.
Anyone had /have Rivelo bib shorts? On offer at Sport Pursuit for £49. Seem decent, only shorts I have are Chinese knock off's - is there much difference in comfort between them anyway?
All the ones I have are good for up to 40 miles, after that, my bum hurts and the ride becomes uncomfortable so what make to you recommend that will have padding good enough to go past 40 miles? Budget about £120.
I bought these for LEL but in the end they just sat in a drop bag as I didn't change out of my Assos. So they have done less than 30 miles of commuting and been washed. Essentially brand new, but can't justify keeping them now.
This may sound like a silly question, but do some rider where a short bib over a longer one? Or is this just the style of some long bibs?
When it was colder and I was a little sore I did this, but not sure if anyone else does?
I bought these in mid-October 2016.
Here is my thread asking for advice on the subject:-
Worn three times in great condition.
Just wondering what the difference between the two. I`ve only worn padded shorts and never felt uncomfortable in them. Has anyone gone from shorts to bib shorts and sworn never to go back again or vice versa?
What are the merits of the bib short?
One for the ladies of CycleChat: Which brands of bib shorts are generally the most suitable for the larger / curvier lady?
My wife is around a size 18 on the bottom half, and she's currently wearing some BTwin full length bib tights, however I'd like to get her a pair of really well fitting...
I was thinking of getting some regular shorts but after a little research decided bibshorts would be a better option.
I really like Endura gear and I am tempted by some Endura FS260 Pro II bib shorts.
Do people have some opinions on these they could share please?
Winter weight bib shorts which I bought in the sales, but tried on (with boxers underneath) for the first time two weeks ago and they are too small - there is a size guide here.
I removed the tags to try them, but will put them back in the bag.
Looking for £40 posted
I bought a batch of four of these and only wore this pair. Once. For about 30 seconds - I came downstairs in them and SMWBO went :eek: , :giggle: , :thumbsdown: and :ninja: rather than :rose:
They're size Small and the material on the side panels is very see through.
You've been warned!
Recently bought these in the sale, reduced from £125 to £40, but they are a little too large for me. worn once for a 25 mile ride so cant be returned, but they are as new. Anyone interested at £35?
I was looking at some planet X Clubman Roubaix winter tights.
Anyone ever used these?
I had some other shorts from there a few years ago and wasn't impressed with the quality. (really thin)
Or if anyone else can suggest decent ones? I'm looking at a budget of around £20, give or take.
I wear Endura NON-BIB shorts and find them really good.
So I decided to try bib-shorts so bought 2 pair.
I just don't get on with them so am sticking with the standard non-bib type.
One pair has been worn perhaps 10 times and the other pair just twice.........but I have just got them out of the...
Maybe the pads on my various shorts are wearing with age or weight loss has given me less natural padding. Whatever the reason I now find that 100+k rides now give me uncomfortable sensations. Of the brands that I
trust - Gore, Mavic and Sportful - which models are best suited to my needs?
I've always worn cycle shorts without a bib. I've been thinking about getting some with a bib. The question is what happens when i'm out riding and need to take a crafty pee? You can't just drop your shorts like non bib ones and lob it out. How do you take a sneaky pee in that hedgerow?
