    Q about the white Assos Mille S5 bibs

    I am thinking of getting the white Assos Mille S5 bibs. Yeah, I know, I know - white doesnt work well with bibs.

    But I have a mostly-white Assos jersey and figured this would go well with it:http://www.competitivecyclist.com/pr...749.159.0.html

    The Mille S5 has black bits above the chamois. So my question for you guys is - anyone have it and know how much of a show you put on with it?

    Cheers,
    V.

    Personally, no matter how well it would match, I would never go with shorts that had white paneling near the family jewels.

    More specifically, you could be putting on a pretty nasty show for the guys behind you if the rear paneling is white on the back too.

    I got the F1 13 S5s. Figured, wtf, might as well see what the fuss is all about, plus I had a coupon from CC. It is also white but with a lot more strategic black.

    And my skinny arms compensate for the fatness
