|I'd like to get a pair of bib shorts, but since I'm 6'5" and wear a medium short I'm concerned that the bib part of the short will be to restricting.
Anybody have any experience with this or advice?

|I'm not 6-5, but 6-2, and wear a large, so take this with that grain of salt...
But I've found the Voler bibs to be very good in terms of length. I really like the fit of the Volers, and find them to be better in terms of length than the PI's I have.
Plus, Voler's are priced very reasonably. Give em a try.

|The Voler's straps stretch more than most, so they can accomodate a taller rider pretty well. That being said - the mediums feel a bit "short" on me and I'm only 6'1.
I think the unfortunate truth is that when you're 6'5 and skinny you're SOL.

|Check out Boure
I'm 6'6" and their XL bibs fit me perfectly. Great quality. They will also do a custom size for you for only 25% more.

|I'm 6'3" and I have a pair of bibs and I hate them. They're way to restricting. They ride up your ass if your my height or taller. I'd say just stick with regular riding shorts.

|Thanks everyone. Your responses were a big help.
I decided to go with a pair of custom bibs from Broue. Spoke with Drew and he was very helpful.
