Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Tights craft vs ...

Well I recently obtained a pair of craft L3 protection tights. They pull over your regular bibs. They seem pretty resistant to rain and they keep the cold out thus far(its been 48 F +). They can however be uncomfortable. Would this be a design flaw of having to pull these over my bibs? Would other tights keep me as warm and as comfortable as bib shorts?

Any other craft users experience this?

48°+F = leg/knee warmers.


btw - if the tights don't have a chamois, then over bibs is the only way to go.
