I don't like the Neros so far. They feel very short (I'm 5'9", got mediums after reading reviews), and the stitching on the lower back is rough. Maybe they need to be broken in?

I'd stay away from those bibs.

They're super comfy but there is no leg grippers.
Mine ride up my thighs and get bunched up in my junk and irritate the **** out of me.
Go for Castelli or Capo

castelli look cooler anyway! thanks

someone bought this for me on a whim, I expect the jersey to be too small, but maybe the bib will be okay for now

Look like chinatown knock offs.
They're decent but trust me when I say invest in a good pair of bibs.

Castelli fits me best
Capo is a better chamois

Probably pick up some Assos bibs come summer

yeah they're knockoffs for sure, but free, I'll take 'em!

I'm going to grab the castellis for myself when they go back up on bonktown. 2 should be enough for me

I'm a big fan of the DHB bibs from Wiggle. I use the aeron race bib shorts and the pace rubaix bib tights. They often go on sale for 20% off

I've got the 'blue steel' pair of telegraph knickers that is on the backdoor sale now. They seem pretty grey to me (pretty closely match my grey kurks). They get the job done, so I can't complain.
