Was not a big fan of older LG bibs but these are vastly improved. The power bands hold firmly in place and the chamois is much firmer than previous versions, which I prefer. I am 61, 182lbs, and the XL fit me well, however, I do have bigger glutes and hammies for my height. I typically wear XL in all brands. My only beef is that I ordered the model with the yellow piping but was sent the solid yellow bands because the former was no longer available. Decided to keep them anyway because the fit and feel were good. The great customer service at BTD did credit me a few extra bonus points for my trouble.
These bibs were on sale one day and I can always use more work clothes so I bought a pair and surprisingly they turned out to be very very good, to the point that when I am going riding and look in my closet the LGs are the bibs I pick because they fit and feel so good, so I bought a second pair. Money vs product and value they are a 10...
for the price i feel like LG can't be beat. these have been great on 100 mile rides. no discomfort. the high viz ones i bought provide some peace of mind. it's hard to miss the bright yellow bobbing up and down when i pedal.
I've been wearing these bibs for years, and now Garneau has come up with an update which makes them even better! I have more expensive Swiss bibs they sit longer in the drawer than these. When l'm getting in 200-250 miles per week, the new Neo's are the ones l grab for the long rides. Compression is strong, it really makes a difference! And the chamois never feels like a soggy diaper on my a... butt. And how can ya beat the price???
These bib shorts are pretty basic in looks, but excellent in fit and quality! These are my go-to bibs when I'm not wearing any of my club sponsored bibs. The compression-type fit is great and the chamios seems just right. My suggestion is to order one size up if you are in between sizes!
I love these bib tights. The quality of the panels, stitching, and padding is among the best. I've ridden on several metric centuries already, as well as just recently finishing the Crater Lake Century (104 miles). These performed great for me with no concerns or sore points to note. Fit as expected. I'm 6.0' 175lbs, wearing the medium.
Very nice fit, well constructed, and very comfortable, although at the end of a 77 mile ride in temps over 95, my seat was getting a tired of being in the saddle. But that was my longest ride to date, mostly flat, and on the saddle a lot. Still recommend them tho.
These bib shorts are my new favorites. I'm 6'3 and 210 lbs, and i originally got the XL. They were a little small, so i got a pair of the XXL size, and the fit is much better. Better length in the bib straps, and still great compression in the legs and waist. The shorts don't crawl, and stay in place for an entire ride. I've never had a problem with the wide straps rubbing in the chest, although I do like to wear a thin wicking shirt under the straps. Padding is comfortable, and not noticeable when riding. I did the Bicycle Tour of Colorado in them, and they felt great for the entire week of riding.
Very comfortable for long rides. Long inseam and good compression - they feel very substantial. I like the new split chamois better than the prior generation (Neo Power) - I think it conforms better and is less bulky. I've used these for a few centuries and a double century, and they're my go-to bibshorts for long days in the saddle. Downsides heavy fabric can be hot, and the chamois is still a bit bulky.
Thought I had found the right cross of compression and not overly cushioned. These are good compression, good on padding. Not so good with heat dissipation. They get HOT on long rides, noticeably hotter than other shorts of similar material weight.
May need to up size to get the right fit. By the chart I should have needed a medium but I exchanged for a large.
The return and exchange process worked well. I am 5 foot 6 inch and 154 lb. I have only used once so far but initial reaction was happy.
