I prefer bibs because I'm 6'2" and jerseys tend to creep up my back higher than my shorts.
I won't wear anything else.Sintesi

Best comfort available, keeps the boys snug and the shorts can't creep down.

Bibs and no shirt or bibs over shirt is a serious faux pas in my book.

only wrestlers should wear bibs with no shirt on top.

my new favorite article of clothing is a pair of roubaix bib knickers - perfect for NOW wheather and a lot better than shorts and tights together. its good to show off the winters growth of hair and pale legs as well.

Great idea, now I don't need to lose those 15lbs.Slipstream

Question: should I get matching tops to go with the bib shorts?

They're much more comfortable than shorts. I wore shorts for years and then bought a pair os Santini bibs on sale just for the hell of it a few years ago. I don't ever wear shorts anymore.
I will sell you all my shorts...agilis ti

they're comphy. the waistband on shorts tend to cause discomfort on my pudge. :)

I agree, bibs + no shirt = bad, bad, bad.

On very hot days I wear them with no shirt and tattoos knowing, but not caring, that I look awful.

LOL! Good for you! Some hot days around here when I'm simply doing a stroller ride it's shorts and no shirt, no helmet, no glasses. Other than that it's 99.9% bibs only.

Now I'm converted. I replace all of my shorts now with bibs. They're just more comfortable. Bibs without a shirt? Fashion no-no.

Dumb question.nigel

First of all, most every pro (if not EVERY pro) in the peloton wears bibshorts. Simple reason: they're the most comfortable thing around. Your attitude stinks. Piss off.
