This will be my first year riding in colder weather where I want to get appropriate cycling gear. I've been doing a bunch of research on this board and I'm looking to get a set of bib tights. Still not sure if I'm going to go with padded tights or use non-padded tights with my padded bike shorts. My shorts are not bib shorts, so I'm wondering if using non-big shorts with bib tights will cause any issues.
As I look at these bib tights I'm finding a number of them come with stirrups. I'm sure it's a personall preference thing, but is there anything I should take into account when considering stirrups over non-stirrup tights?
Thanks for the help.
