What are the things to look for?

Comfort is everything for long bike rides and bib shorts. The fit of shorts, if anything, should provide support to bib straps and upper leg muscles; it should feel nice and snug and keep the shorts in place. The fabric type you pick must be durable and withstand the effects of everyday wear and frequent washing. Widely available fabrics in the market include polyester, spandex and polyamide.

The chamois, nothing but a material patch in the crotch, eliminates chafing from continuous movement during cycling, and should be sufficiently thick and nicely shaped and not bulky. Frills like mobile or MP3 pockets can account for a more enjoyable and safer cycle ride.

What are the common pitfalls?

One of the major concerns is the bib short. If you are off on a long ride, the last thing you may want is something that can cause irritation. A bulky chamois and bib straps are what you should be looking for as they don’t rub and fit exceedingly well. In order to prevent chafing there must a chamois which should be manufactured of a good synthetic material and cut to give you a close and comfy fit.

You will find that most high-end cycling clothing available in the market place can tear away easily and develop holes. The short should last long inspite of constant wear and multiple washes.
