im after some new bib shorts but on a bargain hunting exercise, looking at around 20-30 quid max but obviosuly still want something decent quality. seems to be loads on ebay around that price and even just under but im dubious of quality as most of them dont seem to mention brand name or if they do its one ive never hears of.

anybody got any suggestions of any cheap bibs or websites that sell them cheap ?

    Shutt VR standard bibs are in that area, maybe a touch over, but highly rated...

    I tend to wear a lot of Altura kit as it caters for my height (6'5"). The bonus is that it's pretty cheap - I'm sure they'll have bib shorts around that price.

    Lots of online stockists, and often sale prices to be found.

    Shutt vr standard bibs will be hard to beat for 30quid unless you find a second hand bargain on ebay.

    Every time I've looked at Shutt VR they've sold out of most sizes of the standard bib, but have plenty of the more expensive ones....

    just emailed shutt to ask about sizes and they said mediums wont be in until spring and price is about to go up from 29 to 39.

    might look at dhb stuff in wiggle as they do the earnley bibs for about the same price

    just read your response regarding Altura bib shorts, I'm also 6'5" but have a waist size of 33" on a fat day, what size bibs would you go for?
