PI bib sizing(2 posts)

I'm contemplating a pair of PI microsensor bibs, but wonder about their size. It seems they use more of a US type size scheme. I wear a Large Nalini and Santini bib, a large Castelli is a bit on the small size, but a large DeMarchi is way too big.

I HATE size charts for bibs, since HEIGHT is a factor rarely mentioned. I'm the typical 6'1" 165-170 lbs with maybe a 32" waist. I don't want bibs that are too short (meaning they bind in the crotch). Anyone have any experience with PI bibs?

I just got new medium PI microsensor bibs. I'm 5'11" 155lbs and the fit is good on me. I would say that PI uses the US sizing scheme. European bibs sizes are smaller.

They are not too tight anywhere, but my legs are a little long-looking for my torso. I would say that if you are longer in the waist on average, you would fit in a large just fine.
