    Aero Tech Bib Shorts....

    I will be participating in my first ever group/event ride in the Indianapolis Tour de Cure event in June 2011. I am signed up for the 60k ride and am trying to find some bib shorts that will fit me. I am looking at some Aero Tech bib shorts that I have found on eBay as I can't afford to spend very much, let alone anything truthfully. Has anyone used this brand of bib or can recommend something that is a reasonable quality for a reasonable price? I am currently using Starter XXL compression shorts under street shorts and have not ridden in them for more than 10 miles in a single stretch to date. I know I need prolly 4XL in the bibs, maybe skate by in some 3XLs. Anyhow, any info or suggestions would be wonderful.

    Thanks all.

    If you would be interested in helping me raise funds for my ride the link to my page is:

    I have over 650+ miles on my one pair of them. I have not used anything else, so can't compare, but I *LOVE* them, and will buy again when'if these ever wear out.

    Sizing runs fine, to a bit large.

    At 360lbs, I have the 4XL, and *could* get into a 3XL

    The Falconi Deluxe bibs from Love2Pedal.com are what I use. At $37/ea (or $64 for two), they're as good as anything I've used and cheap enough that I can afford a closet full of them. Their sizing chart is pretty accurate in my experience. Coupon code 'CLYD' gets you $5 off your order. I've also heard good things about AeroTech, but haven't tried them myself.
