What are the most comfortable cycling bibs?
Assos Cento Evo Bib Shorts
From strap to leg gripper, the Centro are one of the best cycling shorts on the market. Compression is spot on, and the S7 Evo chamois is probably the best we’ve tested, balancing all day comfort with suppleness of a much thinner pad, staying put in or out of the saddle.
Should you wear underpants under cycling shorts?
Rule #1 – you do NOT wear your underwear under cycling shorts. Having a pair of cotton underwear inside your cycling shorts negates all of the benefits provided (friction control, moisture management). If you have bib shorts or bib knickers, your cycling jersey goes OVER the bib straps, not under.
How do you pee in cycling bibs?
Simply squat low to the ground (hidden from sight, of course), and pull one leg of your shorts up and over to the side, getting your chamois out of the way before you let it go. This method is probably the messiest/most likely to end with pee on your shoes, but it works in any shorts.

- Liner. Crotch liners are synthetic nowadays (not real chamois leather).
- Leg length.
- Waist length.
- Waist band.
- Leg grippers.
