Anyone tried the new Pace bibs?(6 posts)

Anyone tried the new Pace bibs?MVN
Feb 6, 2003 10:18 PM
I just got a Koobi PRS and received a pair of Pace ITS-250 shorts with a newly designed frictionless chamois pad. Let me tell you, the first ride was great. It has a ...ahem..."cup" designed into the pad using foam ridges. It keeps things in place shall we say, lol. I was wondering if anyone has used (or does use) the bibs. I'm tempted to get a pair. That's the most comfortable pad I've used (so far). Anyway, just curious as to opinions on their bibs.

I have not tried the new Pace bibs, but I have tried the older ITS-100 model, which I found to be very very good, much better in fact than the VarioThick Castelli bibs that I had purchased at the same time. The old chamois was very supportive, the lycra very comfortable and I liked the low waistline, to (ahem) make adjustments while riding. In addition, they have very good customer service. When I first bought the bibs the foam in the chamois bunched up. I called up and they asked me to send the bibs in and the company promptly attached a newer model of the ITS 100 chamois.

I have to say, I have recently tried the Performance Elite bibs, and I like thos very much as well. I cannot tell you exactly why, but I do not get numb and I like the fit of the overall bib as well.

Kind regards,
Dimitri

How do you like the Koobi PRS?

So far, I like it a lot. I've only been able to do two rides on it, though. I'm going out again this weekend (if no rain). I have a Koobi Silver that I like, but the PRS has firmer padding and is a different shape than the Silver. I think the shape fits me better. The stitching has not bothered me so far, either. I tried a Chrono last summer and the stitching was murder. I'm still toying with seat angle and position because the PRS is a little shorter than the Silver. I'll give a review on it after about 60-70 more miles. I put 50 on it last weekend.
