I got mine and had a couple of short rides today (commute to work, 6 miles each way) and really liked them. They are a lot different than anything I have worn before, but the chamois seemed to be in the right place. They felt a little tight, but I am guessing that is just normal and I will get used to it. The fit didn't hinder my riding in any way.

I will get a better test this weekend when I go for a longer ride. First impression is that I am going to be very pleased.

On another note, when my wife saw them she said, "I knew you were going to start buying **** like that eventually!" Shortly followed by, "I supposed you are going to start shaving your legs, too!"

I used the 3x bib shorts on my recent 580 mile tour, alternating them with Performance Gel bibs in the XL size. The 3x are now bordering on too big for me, and I'll probably be ordering the 2x. The shorts were fine on tour, as far as I can tell. I had a problem with chafing from my Brooks saddle, but that's not the bib's fault.

After reading this thread, I ordered 2 bibs. While I was on the Love2Pedal web site, I saw a special on the Falconi jerseys so I ordered 2 of them. I got 2 bibs and 2 jerseys very quickly (great service) from L2P and it only cost me around $100. I figure $25 per bib or top is a great buy.

Here's the neat part. These jerseys and bibs are really nice. The jerseys are far better than many others that I bought for twice the price. I am going to get a couple more as soon as I can.

Geez, I've been avoiding lycra shorts. I always figured that was a pathway to heck starting with lycra and leading to things like butt creams.

Been riding bikes for 10 years wearing jeans, swimming trunks, cargo shorts and even nomex overalls. With prices like they have a L2P I guess I'm just about out of excuses.
