    New question here. Bib short recs

    Looking to get some new bibs. I am currently Pearl Izumis and I am looking for a new pair with a a bit wider of a chamois. Anyone have a recommendation?

    Thanks

    I've had good luck with the specialized pro bibs I got a couple years ago.

    I've liked the Performance Ultra Bib, got best value short for a couple years in a row from Cicyling. I find it real comfortable.

    I love my Specialized bib shorts. They are a bit pricey but the best I have tried. My friends love them cause they dont have to look at my plumbers crack that I get for free with every baggie short i have tried. Bibs ROCK. I am 6' 5" 250 rtr.

    What size? I'm 6'5" ~210lbs and have always worried about the straps being too thight on my shoulders... Thus I never purchased bib shorts... Instead I went with Pearl Izumi pro short in Large and they fit and wear quite well.

    +1 on the Specialized RBX shorts. Mine are XL in size and the most comfy, best fitting shorts I have had since I weighed 190 lbs dukeing it out with the gazelles in the sport class in 1990 and 1991.
