|Just curious what kind of experiences people have had with Castelli bibs? Are the Progetto Y2/VT worth the $60 more you spend over the Oscars or VarioThick Bibs. I know Castelli has a good reputation. What are some of your feelings on these bibs or others that you have liked?|

|At the risk of repeating myself and others, try out the Voler bibs. I have used the Voler, top of the line Performance, Garneau (sp?) and Voler is the best by far. Risk the $50 (versus what$$ for Castelli) and try the Volers. Voler.com|

|I haven't used Voler, but I have tried Castelli Y2K, PI ultrasensors/microsensors, Cannondale, etc. Castelli Y2K Progetto's are wonderful.|

|I've only tried the VarioThick bibs, but, man, I love 'em. They're very comfortable and do a good job of keeping you cool. Recommended. I also have a pair of the Voler bib knickers which I equally love. You can't go wrong with Voler, either.|

|My Y2K's are the favorites in the bike closet. I always save them for the longest ride of the week. They are simply wonderful.
I have a pair of Assos, Nalini, and PI Micro's (all bibs). The Castelli's are number one, with the Assos second and the Nalini's third.
Yes...they are worth every penny of the price!

|I agree with the rest super comfortable but I have to say not durable. Bought a pair last May and the sublimation was starting to crack after 3 weeks. During races they kept snagging on the nose of the saddle (Flite). Rode them off road once grazed a branch and it ripped from waist to gripper. Good for leisurely rides but if you are in and out of the saddle a lot try the PI Micros PRT or prosline Assos. Much more durable and machine washable.|| |
