- Bib shorts – a very stupid question
There is some variation between different makes so worth trying a few on if you can. My assos shorts are much shorter in the body than my pearl izumi shorts. But oddly neither are particularly uncomfortable, they seem to manufacture a fair bit of leeway into the fit.Posted 4 years agobreatheeasyMember
I have a 34″ waist, so normally take L in most brands of cycling shorts, but I’m 6’5. Am I going to struggle to get any that fit?
I’m fairly close to your measurements and I’d say you should be okay.
Though do bear in mind when you first pull bibs on and stand up they’ll feel completely too short in the bib section. You need to get into a riding position and magically they’ll feel a good fit. Never had a set I’d thought were too short in the straps.Posted 4 years agoOmar LittleMember
Fit varies between brands as does how stretchy the bib straps are
Some brands (like assos) also do a long and short leg version of the same size. Also other brands (like skins) have a size chart that goes by height and weight.
Generally though i go by height, if you are average (or either a bit skinny or a bit overweight) then its the easiest way to measure up as bibs are more forgiving around the waist than other sorts of shorts.Posted 4 years ago
Considering trying some bib shorts to see what all the fuss is about. I was just wondering how they size in terms of taking into account different heights, given that the bib bits go over the shoulders and don’t seem to have any form of adjustment?
