    Bib Shorts - Best Under $120

    OK, for those of you who wear bibs and wear them out, what's the latest and greatest?

    I've finally worn through my last two "generic" Pearl Izumi Ultrasensor Bibs and am in the market for new ones. I've got Louis Garneau bibs for my club shorts which have been very good to me but the better ones seem to be hard to find as Generic OTS offerings - mostly sublimated with team logos, etc... like the ones I already have.

    Interested to hear how the new Pearl Izumi Microfiber bibs work in the heat, perhaps any feedback on the Colorado house brand of Microfiber bibs, Giordana, Castelli, etc...

    I swear by Voler. And the price is not too bad either!

    I agree with RHNiles. Voler are great bibs and fairly cheap.

    Voler bibs are even cheaper if you get the E-caps/Hammergel version (from their website). They're about $40. I love mine. I'm gonna order more once it starts warming up.

    Did you know that the word "gullible" isn't in the dictionary?

    I recently bought this Castelli Bib Short from Sierra Trading Post. $59.00, they're beautiful and very comfortable - far more so than my Pearl Izumi shorts.

    I'm very impressed with the Exte-Ondo line of shorts/bibs.
    A bit pricy but worth it. I have Castelli bibs also but like
    the exte better.
    Bicycling Hub (bicyclinghub.com?) has them on sale.
    Bulltek sports also carries them.

    Performance has decent bibs. I like the Century Gel bibs because the "chamois" doesn't have any seams in the pad. But, unfortunately, they use the same heavyish fabric for the top part of the bib. The Elite Bibs have a lighter fabric in the top, and are fine, too, IMO. The Elites may be a rebranded PI. Not sure, but they looked pretty similar to some Pearls I'd seen in another shop.
