        I'm starting to see a trend with Nashbar products. I am satisfied with the product it is just a little big though. I'm 6'2 185 pounds and a large is slightly baggy on me.

        Gel pad looks comfy -- but not.

        Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Bib Short:

        The squishy gel pad, intuitively, seems like it should be very comfy, but it moves under my weight and my nether regions are not happy with it, especially on medium-to-long rides. Also, the padding is heavy and adds to the overall weight of the bib. The bib material is somewhat thicker than most and sits high on the abdomen. It's better suited for cooler days. Just hope that you're not out on a long ride away from facilities and need to take a leak, because pulling these bibs down to accommodate the urgency without strap disengagement will not be easy.

        Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Bib Short:

        Gel pad is a little squishy which appears to be a personal taste. This was my first get and maybe I need to get used to it but the gel didn't seem to stay in place and moved around. It wasn't as comfortable as my other 3 shorts with standard chamois. The front rides high...just below the breast bone... and the shorts fabric feels a little thick. I rode on a fair day and didn't get hot but I'll likely use these on cooler fall and spring days and put them away in summer.
        Not the most comfortable shorts I've ridden but not bad. I will use them for my shorter cool weather rides.

                  Non driver
                  Cycle and pedicab everywhere
                  Seems to me that all shorts have gotten snazzy but have gotten way lower in durability 20years ago bike shorts lasted years . Now ten or fifteen wearing and washing and they are wasted , streched , saggy and pilled
                  Also the pads are all so thick and uncomfortable most feel like sitting on an ill fitting diaper

                    Comments about Nashbar Gel Ride Bib Short:

                    I wanted to try a pair of bibs instead of shorts, and decided to give these a try. They fit great, and contrary to what some have said, the bib is not hot, but rather breathable. I would not hesitate to wear this on a very hot day.

                    Time will tell with the construction/material. They aren't as thick as the other pairs of Canari shorts I have, but the gel pad is much better.

                    For the price, it's hard not to buy these!
