Bibs ?

I have the Nashbar Gel Essential Bibs. They were about $40.00. The Pearl Izumi Bibs are about a $140.00. I have been thinking about a new pair so tell are the Pearl Izumi's worth the money? And why? I don't have a problem paying that for them if they are realy worth it.

Can you afford the $300 sunglasses, the carbon helmet, the handsewn lemur skin gloves, the $6K bike, and the flashy blond bimbo wearing a BFFiftyPlus logo'ed thong to go with those shorts? Most of us find such things worth whatever sacrifice.

I would prefer Castelli over PI and if you can afford Assos they are worth the money. While you can find wearable bibs for <$100 I can say from experience that you get what you pay for in this area. I started out on the cheaper side but I am now convinced after buying a pair of Castelli's that Assos will be my next purchase. This is something I wear every other day and goes a long way in making cycling comfortable. Like my sidi shoes it is not the place to be cheap in my opinion.
