Does Lance Wear Bibs?
If bibs are as comfortable as most people say...how come most of the European pros don't seem to wear them? Now I could be wrong, but when I see photos of the guys with their jersey's zipped way down it doesn't seem that most are wearing bibs?
2-Cyl, 1/2 HP @ 90 RPM
Don't you worry what they wear. Wear what feels most comfortable to you.
BTW: When tyler hamilton walked off the course in this year's TDF, he was wearing bibs.
Yes, Lance wears bibs. In the episode of the Lance Chronicles that shows him in the bathroom pointing out things the straps are clearly dangling.
Life is good
If you want to see bibs, go to
Graham Watson's website. Lots of pictures of riders with their jerseys unzipped and the bib straps are quite obvious.
My bikes: 2001 Litespeed Tuscany --- 2015 Cannondale SuperSix EVO carbon
All the European pros wear bib shorts. You just don't see the straps under an unzipped top because they are widely spaced and thin.
My pal just got back from Italy, and it was almost taboo not to wear BIBs. LOL
I started wearing them a few months ago and IMO they are the most comfortable. But, as they say, whatever floats your boat.
Thanks for the info guys.
