Looking for a pair of bib tights--Advice???

Looking to keep my riding going as the weather gets cooler so I am looking for some advice on a good reasonable bib tight. Any advice??? I figure regular tights would just roll over at the waist which is why I switched to bibshorts.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Sugoi Knicks! They're great! Add in some full length Fleece lined tights for colder weather too, Nike Jogging tights over the knicks work well for me down to 20℉ and add in some windproofs below that. It's all in the layering!

I picked up some knee warmers from Nashbar because they have a code for free shipping right now. Stop by the coupon subforum for the code if you find something you like.

Velowear.com also has free shipping this week. I have a few pairs of their shorts that I like. They even send you an envelope for quick returns in case you don't like them.

Louis Garneau's are nice because some of there stuff has a windbreak material in the knee area that is pretty effective.
