- Thin bib tights
Does anybody make full length bib tights but that are thin? I’m going to start commuting regularly but I have a UV intolerance and leg tattoos I’d prefer to cover when I’m walking through the office (it’s not a problem but I can’t be arsed discussing them!)
I can only really find thermal/fleecy lined bibs. Commute is only 40-50 minutes (uphill on the way home) so it doesn’t need to be the thickest pad.

I’ve been wearing thinnish Castelli 3/4 so far, and just pulling the socks up, bottoms down when I get in.
The Lusso ones Phil H linked to look decent; I use Lusso padless max repel tights over Rapha shorts in deep winter so I like their gear. I’ll keep searching but bear those in mind.
I’ve got warmers so they are always an option. They are a bit warm though!Posted 5 months agomogrimMember
Decathlon do some 3/4s which are pretty thin, I’ve got some for use in Spring and they’re ideal for that. Some long socks and you’d be OK. Running tights are an option, but IME they have a tendency to slip down and aren’t that comfortable on the bike.
Not personally tried them, but how about some cycling trousers?Posted 5 months agonbtMember
Dead thin, wear under your normal bibs
I’ve tried thin running tights (non-bib) over bib shorts and they just slip down. You can have my old ones if you wantPosted 5 months ago
