What do you wear under your bib tights?

I've just bought myself these while the weather is still cold. However I'm unsure as to whether you're meant to wear anything underneath or just put them on? I've got a pair of padded lycra shorts so could use them if needed.

What's everyone's opinion?

    ^^^^^ Caveat: Assuming your bib tights are padded. If not then yes wear some padded shorts underneath.

    Agree, you should not wear anything, they are designed to wear comando and there is a chance of rubbing and chaffing if you do. Trouble is that the legs are a natural channel for the cold air and the misters can get a bit chilly, when it's really cold I do wear some Ronhill Bikesters either under or over to keep the tackle warm and have had no issues. :lol:

    From Ribble Cycles website:

    "Altura Etape Bib Tights
    Traditional bib tights in a modern multi panel cut, perfect over your favourite bib shorts."

    Seems like they don't have a pad.

    Yup - though when it's been really cold recently, the end of my Old Chap has been getting cold in my Assos Winter LL Bibs. Emailed Assos who suggested I buy their unpadded winter bibs and wear shorts underneath!

  • I wear Aldi cycling underwear - I know, I know... but I find them very comfortable and have never had a problem. If it's really cold I also throw on a pair of thin cycle tights underneath the bibs - bought as a present so no idea who/where they're from. Up top, a wicking layer then the bib tights, long sleeve cycle shirt with a warm cycle jacket. Again, this jacket is from Aldi and I've never had a problem. Hope that helps.

    The particular ones you referenced don't have any padding, so wear your padded shorts underneath.

    Otherwise.... as everyone else says.... nothing but air.
