3/4 Bib tights??

Postby redvee » Sat Nov 24, 2012 01:16 am

Looking for some ideas with regards these. In an ideal world Spegg would make them but they don't, only normal waisted 3/4 tights or full length bib tights. Budget of £40ish

Have you considered knee warmers with your normal bib shorts? Same effect for less money.

I like Santini:

These arrived in the post this morning and the material on the thighs is tight, it's not like our thighs will be muscular is it.

Hi - I disagree slightly as normal bib shorts are made from thinner material. One's knees would be nice and warm, but other parts less so... :shock:

I love my 3/4 :)

3/4 are daft - neither fish for fowl. Do you wear your trousers around your shins? All the downsides of tights without the benefits :roll: :wink: :wink:

MTFU and wear shorts.
