I have used them for about 5 or 6 years. They are very good quality and don't hesitate to buy a pair. I have tried many brands and these are among the best. Their winter stuff is very nice also. I love their 3/4 bib tights. The basque make nice cycle clothing. The Euskadi pro team wear this brand. Once team used to wear it.

I bought a pair of power bibs from World Cycling and like them alot. I tried buying another pair and they no longer have them in their catalog. Where did you find yours??

Chamois questionHighgear

I was told that there is a seam running down the center of the chamois. Will this cause any discomfort on longer rides?

No way. To tell you the truth i did not know there was a seam there until you told me. I went and looked at the bibs i have and the seam is very smooth. So smooth i have never noticed it riding. I say don't worry about it at all. You will like the feel of these bibs.

In addition, they tend to have shorter leg length. So, if your tall or unless you want more of a tan line then they may not be the ones for you. I almost bought them but, the shorter length was not for me. I'd say that if your 5'8" or less (in general) they would be fine.

I've ordered from Bulltek and found them to be very helpful and informative. Yes, there return policy is a little tight, but if you discuss your order with Xavier then there should be no problems IMO!

Must depend on which style Etxe-ondo bib you have as far as length. I am 6'1' and the large bib is just fine, very similar to santini in length.
Question for trHighgear

I took your word for it and ordered a pair. I ordered from Prendas in the UK and was told I needed an XL. I'm 6'3" with a 33-34" waist... hope they fit. You said you take a L and your tall too.
