Hey all,

Got my lovely Rock Racing Bib shorts and Jersey today (yeah yeah I know, they are a crappy team full of druggies and rejects.. But I like the design!) and just curious as to how tight the bibs should be over the shoulder.

Im 6'3" but have a long trunk, so I was expecting them to be tight vertically, but how tight should they be?

    Sit on a bike and find out how comfy it is.

    As long as it isn't baggy...

    Mine are comfortable on my shoulders. You shouldn't really be aware of the straps, or they're too tight.
    Start with a budget, finish with a mortgage!
  • hmm I feel the straps quite a lot, so hoping my extended manly frame stretches the material a bit!

  • Bwahahaha if only the bright yellow of my mankini was filled out so well =P

    In other news, my shop actually sells mankinis and a guy that I work with put one on for a customer as a bet!
