I know everyone has their own preference. I haven’t quite decided what mine is yet. I know with my Cannondale shorts, they got baggy and saggy causing chafe-age and a sad taint. I went through pros and cons today through my head, and coming back into the house after my ride solidified my main con for bib shorts.
You have to pee toward the end of your ride, but you want to wait till you get home. You get to the door and dig through your pockets, searching for your key. Your urge to pee gets worse and worse. Finally you find the semi-sharp piece of medal which is the ticket to your relief, and swiftly unlock the door and burst in. You gotta go so bad that you leave your bike outside and run inside to find a bathroom. If you were wearing normal shorts, all you have to do is pull them down and relieve yourself…but you’re wearing bibs, and you are a girl. I know you boys can pull stuff down and roll stuff up to get the job done. It’s a little harder as a girl, especially if your shorts are extra long. You fiendishly try to unzip your jacket. It gets snagged on fabric, so in a frantic state, you pull the jersey and jacket over your head. Almost there! You still have to pull the bibs off from your shoulders and down. Sweet relief. Without any ounce less of self-control, your bibs might have been a wet diaper.
