    Shorts and Bibs...

    What makes bibs so much better than shorts? I was reading over another thread about 'what shorts do you use' and it peaked my curiousity about what makes the bibed short so much better than a regular short...

    well?

    You don't have an uncomfortable waistband and they don't ride down.
    Currently riding an MTB with a split personality - commuting, touring, riding for the sake of riding, on or off road :)

    I like shorts better. Bibs are not very comfortable to me.

    I just switched to Bibs... they are great, unless you have to go to the bathroom frequently...

    I like them better... they just seem more comfortable... they don't slide up, or down, and there is no annoying waistband jabbin' me in the gut
