    Vented bibs for underneath mtb shorts????

    Well I just got my first set of bibs for road riding and woah! Bibs rock!

    So now I'm wondering if there are vented bibs to wear underneath mtb shorts? If there aren't any somebody should make them...I'd buy'em.

    Anybody wear bibs for mtb?

    DirtBaggies - the worlds most comfortable MTB shorts

    I wouldn't get them, since they ain't cheap, and I also need bibs for the road, but..... they're surely more breathable than a regular bib.

    Looks like a good product and was what I'm looking for but wow...$180. That's to much for just a liner. Was hoping more in the <$80 range. Anything else?

    Think they may be the only game in town. Am sure some bibs are lighter than others, but those are the only ones I know of designed for under-layering. The dirtbaggies guy posts here and sometimes he can point you towards discounts on them.

    Hi bigJC,

    We have a couple of ways that you can get into a cheaper pair of DirtBaggies. (The MTBR review is here BTW).

    1) Though our dealer referral program.

    2) We sometimes sell off samples at a discount. You've got to be quick on those as it's normally a single set that's been sent for show and tell. There's a 32" and a 34" bib-liner listed there right now.

    If you're interested in trying them, we offer a 60 day no quibble return option. We're pretty confident you'll like them.

    Hey thanks for the info Tim-ti. I may actually make a go at the dealer referral program. I live in Portland Oregon with some heavy hitter bike shops and they don't sell your product (or one like it) to my knowledge. More Rides in on the road bike now and bibs are the way to go, no question...

    Try the Pearl izumi liners with 3D chamois under any smooth seamed shorts, $35. Excellent chamois and fit.

    AH HA! That's a price I can live with & exactly what I am looking for. Tell me more. Do you use these? Are they hot on hot day rides?

    Yes, I have 3. I only use baggy cycling shorts with built in liners for short rides now and use these on longer ones, the chamois is even better than my Telluride shorts. Having 3 I can take trips and have a fresh liner every day. I live in HOT Tucson and have used them many days of 100+ degrees.
