Rolling up bibs at bottom?
 
I'm 5'11", I have been using XXL bib shorts. I often have to fold over the bottom of my bib shorts a couple times because they are to long. When I was fitted I was told I have really short legs.

Anyone else have this problem? Anyone know of a pair of good quality bib shorts that have a short inseam?

I have the same problem with normal shorts and its not because of short legs, but because of a low waist line. :D

I've noticed that some reviews for the Falconi bib shorts, sold by love2pedal.com, have said that the legs run a bit on the shorter side. The seller has a generous return policy, so you could give them a try and see how they fit.

I own 5 pairs of the Falconi bibs. As far as I can tell, the legs are comparable in length to all of the other lycra shorts I own...

My Falconi shorts come just above the knee, both bib as well as the baggy variety. I would prefer them to be a little shorter, but technically I think for me they are the length they are supposed to be.

also found the falconis to be the same length as my other similarly sized shorts... and would also prefer a smidge shorter... or tighter at the cuff... I've got thunder thighs but chicken legs... so it's a smidge loose at the cuff

Whats the problem with them being too long? I'd love to have some 'knicker' bibs.

...knickers are fine and well... I'd like a pair myself... but it's when they sit right under the back of the knee they rub around the joint... it'll realy hurt with a long enough ride...

Gotta take your word for it.

I swear all my bibs & shorts feel like I'm wearing 'Sugar shorts'. I really wish they made 'em proportional...

er sorry talking about the bands sitting around the knee... I have some leg warmers that gets used a few times a year... I found if the bottom rode up and I didn't pull them down i'd have a nice little rub rash behind the knee
