Jersey Length With Bibs?

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

Jersey Length With Bibs?

I recently purchased a jersey on bonktown and find all the dimensions are fitting snug, but in a good way. However I wear shorts and it isnt long enough to stay down around the shorts and so my skin shows. I havent worn them on a ride because of this. I am going to buy a bib soon and am wondering if you can get away with a shorter jersey with bibs? A size up would leave the jersey baggy...

Yeah you can get away with a shorter jersey with bibs... I've also seen a shorter jersey with shorts, but I don't think I would do it.

I have some PI shorts that have a taller "back" on them, they cover maybe 2-3" higher in the back, which is nice.

Yes, bibs will allow you to wear shorter jerseys without exposing thyself.
