Another thread about bibs...
The rain finally ended in Georgia and I got a chance to test my new Voler bib shorts that arrived on Monday. All I can say is WOW!!!
They are so comfortable I thought I was riding naked.
No elastic waistband or drawstring to cause discomfort. The chamois and straps over the shoulder were subtle reminders that I was indeed wearing cycling shorts and didn't have to worry about the police arresting me.
I think I rode faster too.
Here's my new rating chart.
REI, Nashbar, other "cheap" shorts = 3.0 - 5.0
Pearl Izumi shorts = 5.0 - 6.0 depending on style
Voler shorts = 8.5
Voler bib shorts = 9.5
naked = 10
has their shorts and bibs on sale. My bibs were $44.95.
Maybe I'll try the more expensive brands when (if
) I get another job, but for now I'm VERY HAPPY
Long live bibs.
