- Bib tights sizing for a lanky streak of piss
Ow do all, Ive managed 4 years with 1 pair of lycra shorts, they are getting tired to say the least.
HtN is gonna be fekin freeeeezing, i think its time to get some legs (always ride in shorts atm, no matter the weather)
Im 6’5″ and 11st. waist 30″, on a fat day.
if i go for long ones will i billow in the wind, if i go for thin ones will i get an epic wedgie.
surely a lot of MTBers are built like me, definatly roadies?
any suggestions/advice/tips on sizing tights.
would be happy to go 3/4 leg i think
any reccomended products (looking at around £30 mark max really, but open to suggestions….Posted 9 years agosofatesterMember
6’5″ and 11st! WTF?
“surely a lot of MTBers are built like me, definatly roadies?” – LOL
I class myself as slim at 6’4″ and 15stone. The endura 3/4’s in XL fit perfectly. Perhaps you could try them and see how you get on. If there outside your budget you could have a look at the XL DhB’s on wiggle, good value and well made.
Failing that get down the gym and do some squats!Posted 9 years agojonathanSubscriber
Always size bibs by height – if you go for a euro make then they’ll be fine for the slighter gent 😉
I got a pairs of these in the post today to replace a very worn out set of endura 3/4. They seem a very nice slim fit and have got a pretty good insert. Prendas are very good – you put your measurements in the order and if they think you’ve order the wrong size then they change it 🙂
Oh and you’d be XXL in Santini sizing at that height.Posted 9 years agojonathanSubscriber
I very much doubt the XXL Santinis will be too baggy – they’re sized to fit rake-thin pros, not weekend warrior mtbers. I’m small in most things (and just under 6ft) and their large bibs fit me just fine – just long enough in the body and certainly slim enough.
That tends to be the way most italian and spanish road kit is sized.Posted 9 years ago
