When you buy the bibshorts, you get a nice little laundry bag to protect them. :wink:
Why don't you get one when you buy the biblongs?... Don't they pluck/bobble like the shorts? :?

    I noticed that, got my first Assos bibtights this week - no bag, but my 3 pairs of shorts did.

    It seems a bit wierd they don't come with tights when they come with shorts - can't say I've actually washed my shorts in a bag, it's not damaged them.

    Just b0ll0x!!! :shock: I paid enough for the bibtights, they should provide them free for these, too. :wink:

    I don't need another laundry bag, the bibtights fit in the ones you get free with the bibshorts, and I have several spares... :wink:

    I don't bother with the washbags anyway
    Carlsberg don't make cycle clothing, but if they did it would probably still not be as good as Assos

    But still, it's the principle at that price. :wink:

    Hmmm - so they give you the bags to help justify the price of the shorts, but realise that they'd need big bags for the tights, and cant be bothered spending that much cash on a bag thats not needed ?

    Are you sure it's not cos the fabric on a pair of shorts is more prone to snagging (e.g. on the velcro of your gloves) than the tougher fabric of winter tights hence washing the shorts in a bag?

    Hey, just a practical point of view (but totally illogical, obviously :lol: )

    Do you still get the sample size detergent and chamois cream with the longs?

    Get the DHB ones and Wiggle usually send you some Haribo. I'm easily convinced.

    I reckon the packer ate yours. Keep ordering and increase the odds.
  • I have some Assos shorts. And bags

    .............but I've never really uderstood the bag thing so don't bother. if you stuff them into a bag does it not prevent them from being washed so well ?

    One of my pairs of shorts do have some scuffing of the surface of the fabric but I've always attributed that to when a went scudding along the tarmac having made an involuntary sudden dismount following a n altercation with a car.

    Doesnt work, I spent fahsunds with them last year and got no freebies, this year I have only ordered once but got 2 free packs of Haribo sweets that have 10p written on the front, at least the wiggles were exclusive.

    That p*****d me off as well. I just wash them inside out and hope for the best,

    I'm more concerned with the oil stains on the rear of my airjack that i CANNOT remove :x :cry:
