Hi all,

not a question about which bib's but specifically about these bib shorts. 50% off at Wiggle at the moment and im contemplating picking a set up, more for October time when the temp drops a little. Are they any good? worth the £32? Wont really use them for my commute but my longer evening/weekend rides.

Cheers

Zog

    Bought a pair last week.

    Haven't ridden in them yet, but they seem quite comfy when I tried them on. Pad is a bit less flexible than some of my other shorts but can't complain for the price.

    p.s. the blue is a lot bluer than it looks in the picture.

    I bought a pair as well and whats really shocking is the fact that this shiny smooth really clingy Lycra mix shows everything :shock: :shock: otherwise a nice bib short (maybe apart from the greenyblue colour which i'm not too sure about)....

    Haven't used a pair in anger yet...

    have you read this thread yet? It might suggest that you keep an eye on your credit card activity over the next few days/weeks!

    Yikes just checked my account and see that on the same day I ordered these bib shorts I was stung for a Vodaphone £30 top-up and I had gone through PayPal as well to avoid anything like this happeneing :shock:

    Bank stopped card now and will reimburse me so very little damage done except I will not be shopping on-line any more, now that is sooo inconvenient....
  • in wouldnt be so trustworthy of paypal iof i were you guys. double lock your account and be very vigilant as i recently had an unauthorised transaction of £400 go to 'loius molding' (exactly... who!?)

    this took the £80 out of my paypal account and happily dipped the rest off my debit card. I then had to go theough the hassle of filing a dispute, cancelling all my cards etc and then had the pleasure of waiting 3 weeks for paypal to decide it was indeed fraudulent and give me back my money.

    Needless to say i am super sceptical of paypal after having 2 friends and 1 family member have their accounts breached and money taken!

    Sorry to hear this ended up in a credit card fraudulent situation, I know the feeling (3 times for me) :(

    Anyway, I thought I might tag a few apparent bargain bibtights I had seen online....

    Limited sizes though.

    These look good though, seriously thinking of getting some instead of £70 Santini twist gel ones.....anyone used these models?
