Bibs! FTW!

I've been wearing cycling shorts for a few years now and only recently thought about trying bib shorts.

Anyway, last week our dog chewed out the crotch of my favorite pair so I got off the dime and picked up a pair of bib shorts.

I wore them on my 25-mile commute, this morning and they are awesome! I didn't think that taking the waistband away would make that much difference, but I can't remember ever feeling this comfortable before.

Why didn't anyone tell me how much more comfortable they are? I see all sorts of threads about lycra-vs-cargo shorts, clipless-vs-platform, flat-bar-vs-drops-vs-comfort-vs-trekking bars, but I don't recall seeing anything about bibs-vs-waist-banded shorts.

Is this the best kept secret for cycling comfort?

Sorry if I sound a little giddy, but I am.
