    Nice tip, thanks!

    I grabbed the bib shorts, however, for 5 bucks more. Nabbed free shipping too!

    They're not 29.99 but I've had a pair for a few years now and they're still great.

    +1 My Aerotech bib-shorts are still going strong after three years. Remarkably durable, especially considering they get used 15-20 miles a day, at least three days a week. Totally worth the cost of them, especially when you compare the cost of them to most other bibs. I don't think my Cannondale ones lasted six months.

    When you bought the aerotech bibs , did you measure from your waist or chest ?

    It was several years ago, I don't recall!

    I'm about to order a another set though, as they are having a sale right now (free shipping IIRC). I'll let you know what I do regarding sizing. I think the shoulders of mine have stretched (either that or I got shorter!), so I'm probably going to look at their sizing chart and remeasure myself for these.

    I have had really good luck with the Specialized RBX bibs. More money but have lasted a long time. Straps and chamois are still good after several years. Getting ready to buy another pair as you can almost see trough my current ones gotta wear baggies over them at this point, but they are over 5 years old...
