Shorts & Bib Shorts(4 posts)

Shorts & Bib Shortsdobby
Oct 8, 2003 10:15 AM
My current threads are begining to wear out and/or stretch so I've been checking deals on the internet. Probikekit seems to have some good deals on Team wear.

My question is to do with the sizing of shorts. A size 4 is also size Large which is supposed to be for waist 30-32. The most comfortable best fitting shorts I have are a pair of Size 4 Giordanas. My waist is normally 33/34 although with all the cycling I've been doing lately it's probably about 32-33 at the moment.

I'm thinking of getting some bib shorts for a change and was wondering if I should get the size 4. I'm 6' 4" and was wondering if the length os a size 4 would be too small for me.

Any assistance would be appreciated

Thanks
I'd go to a 5...Spunout

I am 6 feet, 160, and prefer 4. My waist is 32.

5 is a bit big in the body for me. Giordana bib tights in a 5 were too long also, but fit nice otherwise.
go bigger if in doubtColnagoFE

at 6' 4" you should be more concerned that the straps fit your height.

I have a long torso and weight 180.

Your best bet might be to buy a pair or two from Voler. Return shipping is free if you get the wrong size and they're great bibs for the price.

FWIW,
