Bib tights for tall slim people

Postby pb21 » Wed Nov 21, 2012 13:38 pm

Anyone know who makes bib tights with a fit suitable for slim/skinny tall people (192cm/70kg), ideally without an insert.

I guess the Assos will, any others?

Well every pair I order feel like they're made for people of your dimensions, but then I'm 5ft 7" and 85kg :lol:

Have a look at the Craft bib tights here: http://www.alwaysriding.co.uk/legwear-147/bib-tights-52/

I'm 6'2" and about 12.5 stone, the large is a slim fit but really long in the leg; at least 2" too long for me, so assuming that the fit is similar it might be worth having a look at the medium.

Thanks that sounds promising, especially as I do have long legs even considering I'm relatively tall.

DHB size Medium fit me fine. I am about 190cm tall, 34inch inside leg and lighter than you.

Thanks for the info guys.

Just ordered some DHBs in both medium and large. Will see how they fit, good price too.

Edit: In case anyone cares. I got the large and I am pleased with them. Ideally they would be a couple of cm longer in the leg and possibly slightly tighter around the lower calf area but they fit fine. Good value too. 8/10
