Am I the only one who finds their bib shorts over-padded at the front? On a ride they're uncomfortable. :ohmy:
I reckon bibs & pads are pretty much like saddles in that it's individual - one person's comfort is another person's discomfort.

If I was doing long days, I'd reach for the old Assos Mille (with orange pad) as first choice, followed closely by either the Exteondo or Moa bibs I have.

You've done PBP & LEL (kudos), so definitely know about being comfortable on the bike.

Assos seem to be true to size according to the chart ? Large does seem to cover what would normally be XL for me ? Anyway still expensive lol
You don't need to size up (in my experience) & they are sometimes cheaper here https://www.swissiconic.com/

I have 1 pair & was a little underwhelmed with them after all the hype, but they seem to suit some saddles more than others, so it's probably down to personal preferance & your saddle choice :okay: I've also recently purchased a pair of Rapha shorts at a reasonable price, but for me Santini & Ale & the still the most comfortable o think I'll stick with them for now 👍

Ale women sizes are ridiculous, I doubt I would have fitted in the largest aged 8 :laugh:
