Bib Shorts for Clydesdales?
 
I need to order some shorts, am sure my shop wouldnt carry my size (3XL) any sugestions on a type, or mail order company to order from, maybe a sponser from this forum.

Would be a nice bonus if it had some Gel in the right places.

www.bicycleclothing.com also has some (though no bib shorts that I see), but frankly, I'm still more impressed with Aerotech.

I ordered a pair of Aerotech bibs a few weeks ago. They're good quality for the price. Although in my case a wierd fuzzy patch appeared on the lycra suddenly after wearing them 4 times/5 washes. I emailed Aerotech and sent them a digital photo of the patch. Within 48 hours I received a response telling me to send them back for repair/replacement. So assuming they send me something back for free I won't have any complaints.

I have the aerotech bibs. Nothing to compare them to as they are my first and only bike shorts/bibs but I have no complaints.

Recieved my Aerotech bibs in the mail about 1hr ago. I can't wait to try them out :D

Make sure to check your bike and saddle to make sure something is not catching on the shorts. I had a similar thing happen to my shorts. Turned out to be the bolt on seat post clamp had a VERY small rough spot the was catching on the shorts. It was on the hex bolt head. I took a small file to it and smoothed it out..... no more "fuzz" on the shorts.

+100000 on the Aerotechs BTW. I have now tried several brands and I have liked none as much as the Aerotechs. Were the others on short rides, but only the Aerotechs on the longer rides.

Thanks for the tip. Edit: Oh man! I just checked all of my shorts and all of them have the problem in a much earlier phase. I just got on the bike and noticed that I am in fact rubbing my shorts in that spot against the side of my saddle bag. My seat is all the way back on the rails, I'm sure that's the contributor to it.

Not cool. I'm going to have to figure something out. And this is obviously not the fault of Aerotech.
