    Bib Tights Advice Needed

    Hey folks,

    Just wondering what a good make of bib tights would be?

    I am after egonomic fit, not neccesarillly Roubaix, with or without chamois or footloops, but must be smooth and shiny.

    Thanx.

    Dooby.

    Perl Izumi is always a good bet - I haven't been disappointed with them yet. They have a full line from $85.00 (no chamois, fleece lining) up to $135.00 (great chamois, fleece lining, great comfort).

    I second the Performance tri flex, they are great for wide rage of temps and degrees of wetness.

    I don't have Tri flex bibs but wear bib shorts under the tights, which offers more flexiblity with layering and also you can wear regular bib tights under them with regular shorts when it gets real cold.

    I really like the Gore Bike-Wear action bibs. They have an extra layer with windstopper on the fronts.
    Thin absorbent lining inside. No padding.
