Long Inseam Cycling Shorts/Bibs?

Looking for any recommendations for good, inexpensive, long-inseam (11 inch +) cycling shorts/bibs that come down to just above the knee for taller riders (I'm 6' 2") who like a little less leg showing. Thanks in advance.

Longer inseam

I like a longer inseam as well and am pretty happy with Baleaf Men's 3D cycling short available on Amazon for about $22.

With so many odd brand shorts available on Amazon, the main reason why I gave them a try was because they advertised the longest inseam I could find. They are not as good as my $90 Pearl Izumi, but for day in, day out rides, they work well enough. I save the PI's for those 50 miles plus rides

I'm 6' tall and about 170,. The large fit me quite well. You might want to try an XL as you are a few inches taller.

Definitely Aerotech - look for their Tall Men shorts and bibs. (I also like a long inseam and I'm a petite lady.)

I've done mid-summer centuries in those...

That said I've recently been finding I can do distance rides several days in a row in a way I didn't think I could in previous summer seasons, and wonder if the tighter fit and double layer of what I've been wearing for mild winter temperatures is helping (a pair of their running tights over a pair of their currently out of stock chamois tights).

https://www.theblackbibs.com/shop/the-black-bibs-plus 9.5-11" inseam, depending on which size you get. quality power band leg opening.
https://www.theblackbibs.com/shop/bibs-tall 13" inseam with the same power band leg opening(comfortable and way better than stupid silicone leg hair gripping band on some shorts) as the plus shorts.

Funkier used to sell some longer-legged bibs a while back .... I haven't kept up with their current offerings.
