    BF NorCal bibs

    I bought medium NorCal bibs. They look great, the quality is fine, but the legs are too short for me.
    Anyone else has issues with them, or is it just me?

    On a related note, I'd be willing to part with these once-worn and laundered bibs for very little $. PM me.

    Absolutely, I have that weird tan line and white skin and shorts. You have to keep pulling them down.
    Oh well off to the tanning booth I have an expensive pair of Liquigas bib shorts the same thing. I think part of the problem with both bibs is the suspenders are too short. The shirt fits great.

    Yeah same here. I think it's general problem with CS. Don't really like to wear them, look really goofy they are so short.
    I see hills.... Bring them on!!!
    Stay calm and bring a towel.

    Hummm. After reading taxi777's comment I wonder if indeed it's just the straps that are so short thy pull 'em up too much.
    I think I'll try taking them to the local cleaner who employees a seamstress and see if I can have her add a bit of fabric to those darn straps.
    Unless someone here is medium and even shorter than I am....(5'7")

    Good news. Perhaps a fix is possible!
    Ya know, those things are made in Asia. I wonder if it's just a height thing?

    I was gonna ask about your bibs curtis, but I'm 5'11" and a med, so I'm pretty sure I'd have a problem similar to you.
    The nicer the bike.. the more demanding your life becomes off it..

    These bibs would HURT you. You'd never stand up straight again.... so to speak.
