Your best bib short recommendations


#81

Assos 't equip evo. Worth the money


#82

the best pads are from www.elasticinterface.com but my preference goes to castelli\sportful pads


#83

So far I’m very impressed with the Funkier 17 panel bib. Great price on Chain reaction if they aren’t sold out


#84

Have you tried bibs? They’re a lot more confortable (I guess just to no elastic around the waist) and you don’t get the occasional upper butt sunburn if you wear a slightly too short jersey.


#85

@dhaines83 I have not tried Bibs yet. I may buy some soon. However I do not know what size to buy. I am 185 lbs now but I forecast that I will be at 155-160 by the end of May. Perhaps a large size?


#86

I have 7 from various companies and my go to bibs have always been my Pactimo bibs, 8 plus hour rides with zero issues and the stitching is great.


#87

@ktimesk More than likely Large, however it depends very much on the brand. So the best thing to do is grab a soft tape measure and follow the instructions on the website of the brand that you’re interested in. If you’re going to be using them mostly indoors, then a summer/lighter bib short should work great.

If you lose that much weight you may move down a size, but never count on that. Buy what fits currently. European sizes will typically run truer than US-based brands.

My two favorites, as in I don’t want to wear anything else.

Voler Black Label
Hincapie - Love these


#89

Voler is one of the underrated companies out there IMO. I have a pair of Caliber bibs and Prestige Pro bibs and they are both great.


#90

I wouldn’t recommend sharing your bibs to others :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#91

How many seasons do you think you could put into them?


#92

Anyone try the new Assos Equipe RS bib? Sounds like they made some interesting tweaks. One of the staff members at Competitivecyclist.com posted some initial impressions.


#93

Anyone tried Jakroo stuff? I know the TR kits are done through them. Curious about thoughts?


#94

#95

The best thing about the Pactimo 12-hour bibs is that you never think about your bibs.


#96

I plan on grabbing some once it warms up a bit around here.


#97

I wear Assos.
