Are bibs more comfortable than shorts? Many riders
prefer the feel and comfort of bibs to regular cycling
shorts. Pro and serious riders tend to prefer bibbed
shorts over non-bibbed shorts, due to the discomfort
that often occurs with an elastic waistband, such as
tightness (digging into skin) and chafing. Bibs help
both the pad and the waist stay in place.
