A bit of a weird topic, but is it possible to get hangers for bib shorts / tights anywhere? Always a bit of a pain to hang up and was just wondering if such a thing existed.

    Is this after you've ironed them? :lol:
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    Just use ladies skirt hangers, or do as I do and let the other half put them away nicely instead.

    either use the clips or just hook over.

    Shove them in a drawer?

    Or, if you're really posh, after you have had them dry cleaned and pressed?

    Jerseys/jackets/gilets all get hung up but socks, bases, warmers, bibs and other bits get rolled up and filed away. Saves rummaging about in drawers and only finding one leg warmer.

    I'm another 'stuff it all in a drawer' type of cyclist. Whenever the drawer gets too full to shut, I've clearly accumulated too much stuff again so I chuck some of it out. The contents seem to adjust according to the season; at the moment it's all Goretex, windstopper, wooly boolie socks, buffs, hats and roubaix bibtights on top. In the summer the SS tops and lightweight bibshorts seem to come up to the surface. It's a kind of self-regulating ecosystem...

    I actually employ people to stand in the spare room wearing my bib shorts to save having to find alternative storage solutions: multiple benefits:

    1. If they all crowd together they take up less space than a closet/chest of drawers
    2. If I have a party I can wheel them out and I look popular
    3. My chamois pads are always warm whenever I put shorts on.

    To ensure cleanliness of the bib short wearer I have them degreaser and bead blasted once a week whether they need it or not.
