Anyone know who makes bib tights with a fit suitable for slim/skinny tall people (192cm/70kg), ideally without an insert.

I guess the Assos will, any others?

    If you fine some, let me know. That is tall, but 70 kg... Wow I thought I was a rake, 202 CMS and 95kg. :)

    Well every pair I order feel like they're made for people of your dimensions, but then I'm 5ft 7" and 85kg :lol:

    Try Gore, Campag, Castelli, Giordana, Mavic, Assos, Rapha, Santini, Etxeondo, Pearl Izumi, Endura ......

    Have a look at the Craft bib tights here: http://www.alwaysriding.co.uk/legwear-147/bib-tights-52/

    I'm 6'2" and about 12.5 stone, the large is a slim fit but really long in the leg; at least 2" too long for me, so assuming that the fit is similar it might be worth having a look at the medium.

    Thanks that sounds promising, especially as I do have long legs even considering I'm relatively tall.

    DHB size Medium fit me fine. I am about 190cm tall, 34inch inside leg and lighter than you.
  • I'm 185cms and 70kgs and just got a pair of medium size Santini bib tights that fit really well.

    I'm 6' and 10 stone, happily in a medium DHB.

    Thanks for the info guys.

    Just ordered some DHBs in both medium and large. Will see how they fit, good price too.

    Edit: In case anyone cares. I got the large and I am pleased with them. Ideally they would be a couple of cm longer in the leg and possibly slightly tighter around the lower calf area but they fit fine. Good value too. 8/10
