|I am thinking of buying, however before I spend this much money ($159), I want to know if anyone has experience with these bibs? Are they OK?|

|Every Assos product that I have used, bibs and jerseys, has been a great product. Are you ordering or buying at the LBS? Figure out the correct size before you order. Their large covers a fairly wide spectrum. The seat pads are great.|

|I am ordering, my LBS does not carry Assos. I heard they are sized by height, therefore a large would be right. Thanks.|
|Definetly get the FI-13 Bibs||DoubleK|

Do yourself a huge favor and pony up for the FI-13 bibs. They are the most comfortable shorts I have ever worn in my 12 years of serious riding. I tried them and was blown away by the confort of the pad and the new Lycra material really fits well. The bummer is that I have four pairs of Evo shorts that I can't stand to wear anymore. They have a lot of miles in them but Assos stuff wears so well that they they still have a lot of miles left to go. They are now relegated to Winter time trainer duty.
Don't even consider any of the other Assos shorts, the FI-13 are that good IMO.
|Yeah the F1.13's are nice||ColnagoFE|

|but you pay through the nose for 'em. I'd love Performance or some similar company to reverse-engineer these and come out with a pait for under $100.|

|www.wisecyclebuys.com had them on sale (he advertises here on the classifieds (clothing)
He even threw in free Assos chamois creme.
The first short that I ride in and I can't feel it...if that makes any sense.
|cool with the creme, but $4 off is not much of a sale (nm)||ColnagoFE|

|I Got Mine at $20 off plus free creme, free shipping.||jromack|

|Figured I saved almost $40|
|price on web different from price you paid then?||ColnagoFE|

|they advertise $184 or something like that on the web link you gave. Excel sells 'em for $189 but no creme. That's what I assumed the full retail price was. Do others sell them for more? The creme is like $12-13 so it's a better deal than Excel once you throw in the creme. Total of about $20 savings there. But even then they aren't something you are likely to buy 6 pairs of unless you have lots of $. I'm saving mine for special occasions|
|They Were $169 A Few Weeks Ago...||jromack|

|But no longer... I wish they were $75, I would buy several more. Mine are also saved for long rides, etc.
