They are just good quality at a reasonable price, especially during the frequent sales. Fairly high tech chamois considering the price range. Up to 50 mile rides (as far as I ever go these days), they have never caused any discomfort or chafing. I should mention I always use Body Glide, however.

i agree. the performance ultra bib for the money is really outstanding. I usually buy higher price bibs or shorts such as pearl izumi or asso's, however the performace ultra bib for $99.00 was an outstanidng deal and extremely comfortable.

I have been riding for years and have been wearing bibs for years, and I still having found a pair that does what I want them to, which is to keep everything in place and point the twig in an upward position. This may sound like a joke, but it isn't. I am having to adjust myself all the time, and it is starting to get on my nerves. It seems to me that the part of the shorts where the chamois is is not snug enough. I am trying to pull them tight all the time, so that the package isn't roaming all over the place. I don't wear a jock, but I understand why sometimes some guys would want to. I have done triathlons for a long time, and frankly back in the day when speedos were commonly worn for races I found them to be the most comfortable riding gear. Now obviously I don't wear them to ride, but sometimes I wish that they would design the shorts so that something like speedo were a part of the shorts. I have never gone to a bike shop telling them this problem--just didn't seem like something people would want to know. So I've ended up buying more bibs than I need trying to find a pair that would take care of the problem. And haven't found such a pair yet. Have been willing to pay 75 dollars or so.

Who would want the "twig" pointing up. In case you don't know it, that is not how this works.
