Benefits of bicycle bibs versus shorts for both men and women

 

It may be a leap to try bicycle bib shorts for the first time but they offer many advantages over shorts - which is why all professional and vast majority of better riders use them by preference!

  • They are simply more comfortable - without an elastic waistband, and the structure keeps the nick and chamois in place better and without pressure points. Riders who try bibs typically tend not to go back to old style bicycle shorts.
  • There is more choice - as better riders use bib shorts most manufacturers release more, and better quality shorts, in the bib style. Many small brands do not do shorts and major brands (i.e. Assos, Santini) have a very reduced range, and typically suited for less advanced riding.

 

Who does not use bib shorts?

Many triathletes especially in competition where they use a short to pull over their swimming gear, or use a tri short or tri-suit with an integral thin chamois.

More women use knicks than men - for the added convenience in bathroom breaks.

Casual riders who use "Mountain Bike Shorts/Shy Shorts" for reasons of modesty and the added convenience of pockets. Though true mountain bike competition riders use bib shorts.

Hope this helps watch the video for more.

Great product, good sales service

Eager to please

Within 24 hours of ordering they phoned me (not just an email) to explain they didn’t have stock of the socks I ordered, and offered a more expensive (superior) alternative for the same price. Received the next day. Amazing service.

Very good service!

I did received a call from Andy (from Australie to Canada!) to give me more detail on my order. Very nice!!

BBB Long sleeve base layer

The BBB Firlayer long sleeve base layer is excellent.

Must have for riding in the heat

Most of my riding is done in the heat and have been using the Halo skull caps for a few years now, having no hair these keep my head dry and cool. Helmets aren't drenched in sweat at the end of a ride and the rubber strip stops the drips on the inside of the riding glasses. One of the first things packed in the gear bag, camo looks pretty cool as well.
