edited April 2011 in Road buying advice
I have short but big(ish) thighs and I can't find a decent bibshort that comes 3/4 down the thigh rather than all the way to just above the knee?

Don't want to compromise on the pad so shutt vr standards are out.

Any suggestions gratefully accepted

    Shutt VR Pro shorts. Always get good reviews and are good value for money compared with Castelli and Assos.

    Got them already - great shorts but too long for me. Just fired them an email to see if they can alter them for me.

    If not I may look at Assos/Rapha or wait for the new DHB Aeron Pro's as I am wearing Finchdeans at the moment.

    I have Assos uno and Giordana Silverline shorts and both come about 3-4inches above my knee.
