    SF Bay Area/Santa Cruz Bib Short Retailers...

    All,
    I am am giving in and going down that dark road to the Bib Short crowd. I am looking for recommendations for shops in the South Bay/Santa Cruz area that have good selections of high quality Bib Shorts and Jersyes since I hate ordering clothing online. Never know how it will fit...

    Thanks for any ideas
    Erik

    you'll never regret going to bib shorts.

    QBP has their Salsa kits on closeout right now. 80 for bibs/jersey. Call hank and frank and they can order them or just about any other bike shop, as QBP is a major distributor.

    What part of the Bay Area are you in?
    Calmar in Santa Clara and Outfitters in Los Altos has bib shorts.

    Also I would recommend Voler for fit and quality, well worth the money.

    Pearl Izumi outlet in Gilroy has a good few of them. As an outlet, they are usually on sale.

    Based on reviews from fellow riders, Voler is my target for purchase but I hate ordering blind to sizing so I want to try some on and get specs so I can make a smart order the first time.
