Bib Shorts

The family have started asking what I'd like for Christmas and I'm in need of another pair of good bib shorts.

I bought a pair of Endura FS260-Pro in June and have had them on at every opportunity, they have been great. I'd quite happily have another pair, but also willing to give something else a go. The Endura's can be had for £65, but budget is around £80.

Have seen Castelli Free Aero for £80 - any good?

All recommendations welcome, cheers.

    Yes - buy from Castellicafe for £74

    Best bibs you can buy in my opinion...
  • Absolutely. At £130 they compare equally with Assos. Basically, choose which one you like and which one fits.

    At £74, provided that they fit, it's a no brainer.

    Facebook? No. Just say no.

    Thanks for that.

    Any pointers on fitting? I was planning on trying them on, but only wanted to do that in the shop they'd be bought from and it seems they may not have my size. Not really comfortable trying on in a shop and then buying online/elsewhere.

    I'm 5 '11, 32in waist and normally a medium for bibs, but have heard for Castelli you generally have to go up a size or 2.
  • You definitely won't be an XL.

    Given your height I'd think you may be an L but, most probably, medium.

    The Café are excellent at returns, just order both!

    I'd say more than likely you are a medium aswell. Castelli is my favourite brand, quality stuff.

    I'd say large tbh.
    I'm 5ft 8.5in, 70kg and 32" waist and large fits well.
    Cheers, Stu

    Think I'm going to find somewhere to try on though.
