Recommend me some reasonably priced bib shorts
…mainly for medium-long distance all day road riding
Lots to choose from in the On One / Planet X sale in particular, anyone any experience of any, or any other recommendations?
Max budget is about £80-100 but would rather spend much less but will stretch it out if it means significant levels of extra comfort
After something not too hot and good at wicking sweat, I normally ride in just a T shirt/base layer and shorts with padded liners, even in autumn and warmer winter days as I hate being too hot
Also Chamois cream, tell me about it, what’s the difference between that and the countless little pots of Nappy rash cream we have lying around from when my daughter was a babyPosted 4 years agomuddydwarfSubscriber
Decathalon do fairly decent bibs for not too much, they are fine for around 10-12 months & then I’ve found the pad compacts & stops being comfy.Posted 4 years ago
Ive just splashed out on some Morvelo bibs & the pad is seriously excellent although I can’t comment on longevity as yet.TeetosugarsSubscriber

I have always liked the dhb stuff.
The aeron race are suitable for most riding, I’ve done plenty of centuries in them and done one 10h, 150mile CX ride.
The aeron pro are the next model up. They are more comfortable and a nicer fit (for me). Bought a couple of pairs for some holidays as I was doing some long days. averaged 90 miles a day for 7 days in majorca, or 100miles a day for 4 days in Italy. Since then I’ve done a couple of 150mile rides in them as well.
Check the prices but the more expensive ones work out at about £70?
As for cream – check to see what is on offer. I’ve used stuff from planet x but they only have really expensice stuff left. I mostly use the udderly smooth from wiggle. It is fine and cheap. Only comment is a tube is easier to handle than a pot but it is a small annoyance not a problem.Posted 4 years agolungeSubscriber
Decathlon, the 700/900 series stuff. They did me a right job on a 280 miler earlier this year.
£30 ish and better than shorts I have bought costing 3 times as much.Posted 4 years agobam74Member
Got 2 pairs of these and some DHB Aero pros. Assos are so much more comfortable on longer rides.Posted 4 years agolemonysamMember
Craft are the most comfortable that I have, can be found on sale often.donalMember
