I recently purchased the McKenzie Bibshort at a great price when they were the Daily Deal - and I'm glad that I did! Fortunately, I read the other reviews which caution that the bibs do run on the small side. I'm 6'-0", 200 lbs, 34" waist, 21" dia thighs, and a longer torso (I wear pants with a 32" inseam). I ordered the size XL, which fits great and, so far, have been quite comfortable. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another pair. Thank you Western BikeWorks!
These are my new favorite road shoes. They are super light, which is more noticeable on rides than I would have expected. The ventilation is also extremely comfortable--ironically keeping my feet drier than other shoes even when its a little damp out. Don't confuse these with all-weather shoes, but the ventilation is covered with a mesh that somehow seems to deflect water while allowing moisture escape (brilliant!). And even though they are super-vented, I have worn them comfortably on 40-deg rides without shoe covers (and with very thin Rapha Pro socks). And I would think that an effective shoe cover like a VeloToze or even a more conventional waterproof cover would allow the shoe to perform acceptably well in mild rain. So, not all weather, but most weather. But mostly, these shoes are really comfortable. They are quite stiff, meaning great power transfer and no hot spots. But they also have very pliable uppers, meaning excellent adaptability to the contours of the foot (at least my, rather narrow foot). I have now put a couple thousand miles on these and aside from a few scuffs from toe-over front wheel rub, they look and feel like new. I was quite skeptical about these shoes because I was not confident that they would be good all-around shoes, but I've been convinced. These are now my go-to number one choice. Highly recommended.
I wear a cap under my helmet on every ride year round. It protects my bald beak from the sun. Also learned my lesson a few years back before I started wearing a cap when I got stung by a bee on the crown of my head on a very steep and fast descent off a mountain climb. Anyway, this cap is super light and breathable. You can easily tilt the brim when you need to without interfering with your helmet fit. The material wicks away sweat unlike the cotton caps. The SPF is a bonus. I look to buy a couple more to keep in my cap arsenal. If you want a cap under your helmet this one is the best I've had so far...and you should see my collection.
These are the widest shoes I have ever worn. I even used the Lake website and measured my feet and these were in the range. But I have to cinch them pretty tightly to minimize the heel lift. Thicker socks help, also. I will use them in Winter more with heavy socks and somewhat less aggressive riding. They are very comfortable, well-made, and adjustable with the dual BOAs. You may have to grind out some of the sole material around your cleat to make entry easier for SPD. The channel is very narrow and hard to align. I like them, but they are not for racing because they are heavy and the fit is loose. Get standard or normal wide sizes for that.
