If you haven't used cycling bib shorts orbib tightsbefore, you'd be forgiven for asking some questions. Why the straps? What's the advantage? Won't they be impractical? Truth is, we rarely find anyone who's tried bib shorts on their bike and hasn't been won over. The shoulder straps allow for better comfort and fit than most strapless equivalents, and you can eliminate that risk of shorts slipping down and leaving that dreaded gap. Don't knock them till you've tried them... it's no coincidence that the pros would never consider anything else.
