These are the best yet. I've tried a number of different bib shorts from a variety of vendors and none compare to these. Other brands have restricted circulation causing some numbness or just didn't fit very well. Castelli's Endurance Bib Shorts do everything right. Doesn't matter if you ride all day or just a few hours - hot and humid or cool and breezy, these shorts are the way to go. I've ordered additional for my supply.

I wanted to get one of these from RealCyclist.com but they didn't have my size in stock so I paid "list" price for it at Hincapie.com This suit is the real deal and yes it costs the earth. Once it's in stock here, I get to procure another one or two for a nice discount. Right tools for the job, this skinsuit has no compare. Cycle on!

I read the other reviews of these and the PI PRO Octane shorts as well before ordering one of each. Everyone is somewhat different anatomically so your own experience will likely differ from mine. These Giordana shorts are certainly functional and that may be all one can hope for when it comes to biking attire. They didn't give me a totally different level of biking comfort as I thought they might at this price point. Was not disenchanted enough with them to return them to RealCyclist but a reorder is out of the question. On to the next more comfortable clothing adventure!
