    I used to have that issue with my shorts and thought about getting bibs but since losing some weight I haven't had that issue again. If anything they are a bit looser than I would like but still work. I really haven't seen a need for bibs for me, but that could always change.

    I rode for 10 or 15 years without a need for bibs. Then one day I tried them and discovered how phenomenally comfortable they are compared to regular bike shorts. Now, I honestly wouldn't wear anything else...

    I figure that much, goal is once I get down to my end goal weight I will "treat" myself to a new bike and get up. Going to get all Fredded out.

    Does that mean that bibs result in fewer saddle sores?

    Why wait? Falconi Deluxe Bibshorts are only $37 at Love2Pedal.com. Use coupon code 'CLYD' for $5 off that price. They also see two pairs for $68. Lots of color options, so search around for the exact size+color that you want. If you lose weight and shrink out of them, they're cheap to replace...

    A good saddle results in fewer saddle sores. Bibs may help a little but, for me anyway, getting the right saddle is the best way to eliminate saddle sores.

    +1 on this

    In addition you need to develop your "butt callouses" but first and foremost is a good saddle.

    I'm reminded of this because my saddle on my Jake is a TORTURE device!

    Somethings you just can't "unsee", even when they're simply imagined! Thanks a lot.
    Birth Certificate, Passport, Marriage License Driver's License and Residency Permit all say I'm a Fred. I guess there's no denying it.

    I'm not sure this is Clyde-specific, but bibs are, simply, massively superior. They are more comfortable, they stay where they are put.

    And for those of us that have a less than TDF like figure they don't roll down.
    Current Rides, Look 566 & d' Arienzo-Basso Daily Rides. Cannondale 800 Optimo, utility bike.

    I'd rather hold on to that $40 for now in order to get a new bike. Having all the newest riding gear and a 30 year old bike isn't always that much fun. Although I will definitely keep that brand in mind.
