My Lovetopedal experience

At the urging of my fellow Clydes, I ordered 4 Falconi Bibs and two USNavy jerseys from I used the two bibs for one Page. As I was ordering I got a call from a Client with a Data Collection problem. In the special instructions portion of the Bib order I neglected to tell them I wanted them in XL.

I got an E-mail from Dan the next day asking what size I needed. I replied XL. Soon afterward Dan informed that they were shipped.

When I recieved the package I was busy and didn't open it for several days. When I did open it I saw that I'd only recieved 2 of the 4 Bibs ordered. I emailed Dan. He E-mailed me back the next day saying he was sorry and the 2 bibs were shipped. I recieved the two bibs in a few days. No questions asked.

The Bibs are excellent they do run a little smaller than I expected but that's how Bike clothes go.I just got back from a 2 hour ride and they were extremely comfortable. They are about the most inexpensive bibs available.

You don't know how good a company is until there's a problem. Dan handled my order very, very well. I recomend their company and their products.

I asked Dan if I could post his E-Mail address. If you have any questions about the products Send him an E-mail

Coupon code 'CLYD' gets you $5 off your order.

Url fixed sorry

My two experiences with them have been nothing but lightning fast shipping. The bibs are great for me although I have no other bib experience than the ones I bought from Dan.

Those are great prices. 2 pairs for $56! I paid $160 for a pair of Specialized (when I got my bike) and though they work the threads are already coming apart after less than a year. Next time I am in the market I will be sure to check these bibs out.

I think you may have got the wrong URL here, I was confused trying to figure out where the bibs where!

The trial pair I ordered a week or so ago are a little snug right now, but I'm going to hang onto them. The quality looks great, and they should be just about the right size for at least 3/4 of the upcoming riding season.

And they came with a discount certificate for my next order, and a zippy little bicycle-shaped bottle opener for free. Thanks, Dan!

Bringing an old thread back to life but whatever. It deserves it, haha

I got a 2 pair of 4xl bibs for my 60" waist. They fit well, especially considering they are advertised for 44" waists. They're also really comfortable. I feel no discomfort or pain in my crotch area anymore. There's no padding on the back of the "butt" though, at least for my big one =p

Big men, this is your answer!

Since it's resurrected-

I just recieved a couple pair of bibs from Love2Pedal also this past week. Excellent deal!
Got to my door quick, fit great, and super inexpensive. What more could a clyde ask for.
BTW the code CLYD still works for five bucks off.

I decided to purchase these based on reading this thread a while back, and other threads about how great this company is. No regrets.

The Falconi Bibs are by far the best I've owned. For the price they are a steal. The next time I need bibs I will buy them from L2P. L2P is awesome even got a free upgrade on one of my orders.
