Poll: Bibs or Shortstxcross
Apr 3, 2003 2:34 PM
Don't know the proper etiquette, are polls reserved for Fridays?

Just started wearing bibs in the last month and will never go back. So what is your preference?

A) Bibs and nothing else
B) Shorts and nothing else
C) Whatever is clean
D) Bibs, what are bibs?
Usually A. Sometimes C. (nm)Ken of Fresno

...I just ordered some bibs. We'll see, but I'm skeptical about their hot weather suitability.

I wear old shorts and MTB shorts for spinning, bibs are just too hot when you can't generate your own wind.
usually C, but prefer A (nm)godot

A always, started with shorts, but only bibs now. Especially since i don't feel they make a difference on hot days. I notice the pro's always wear bibs, even when it is hot. Plus you can get breathing braces also. The best thing about bibs is that with the braces and chamois cream you can always count on getting the pad on the saddle were you want it. With shorts i felt like i was always getting off the saddle to adjust the chamois location.

I like bibs but mostly wear shorts.Mike P

I tried bibs. . . I like how the bibs kept things from moving around, but, I do not like having to take my shirt off to # 2.

I wear shorts on all longer rides. About the only time I wear the bibs is when I don't have any clean shorts.

I prefer bibs, but I'll sometimes grab a pair of shorts for the rollers or if it's a real oven-stuffer-roaster day in Virginia.

I'm not buying any more shorts so I guess you could say I'm phasing them out.

A) Only bibs for probably 12 years now.

Don't even have any shorts unless you count the wool Castellis and Vittorias I still have in Plastic bags upstairs. Black wool, real chamois and no padding!

AAHH! The old days!
