Could someone explain the advantage of bib vs. shorts to me?
winstonguy saidI dont like bibs at all, especially in the summer because they are hot and they chafe my nipples! Never had any problem with regular shorts staying in place.
roadbikeRob saidBibs are for farmers, not for cycling athletes. No I don't own a bib and I see no legitimate reason to wear one. Tight fitting cycling shorts are more than adequate enough. As for these cyclists with the big glutes causing their cycling shorts to bunch up or fall off, that is because their tight fitting cycling shorts are not properly fitted in the first place so what do they expect?

Or Bodyglide -- doesn't stain.
sxydrkhair saidI am so confused... What is Bib?
multisportmansf saidI think bibs are more comfortable for long rides. The biggest issue for me is when you have to pee in the middle of a ride--especially when it's cool outside. Make the quick pee on the side of the road a LOT more difficult and time-consuming, cause you generally have to take your top off, too.
