I think I have one pair of non bibbed bottoms. But I don’t wear flappy trousers over the top. Posted 3 years ago Malvern RiderMemberHow long is a piece of string? You can always peel down the top if i remember correctly, havent worn bib shorts for many years, and of course summers were hotter back then… Posted 3 years ago scotroutesSubscriberSome bib-shorts have a lower waste line and mesh uppers. If the TDF riders can all manage to wear them then I can’t see how you’d overheat in the UK. Of course, none of them feel insecure enough to have to put a baggy layer over the top. Posted 3 years ago Phil_HSubscriberBib shorts all year round for me. Posted 3 years ago jambalayaSubscriberI currently wear roadie lycra shorts (specialised) under my mtb baggies and will be switching to bib shorts, most of them are vest type on the top part and I don’t see being hot as an issue. Posted 3 years ago LiferSubscriberAll the bib shorts I’ve got are mesh at the top, if it’s hot enough to unzip a jersey the bibs won’t make much of a difference. Posted 3 years ago bigblokeMemberThanks people, just bought some and your right the top part is mesh anyway. Posted 3 years ago jimificationMemberI find bib shorts quite warm in summer. If I bought some more I’d get the Castelli or similar ones that are pretty much just straps from the waist up. Posted 3 years ago bigblokeMemberLooking for a new set of padded shorts to wear under my mtb shorts, been using bib tights for the winter, would bib shorts be too hot in the summer?
