My second pair of Assos and I am a very satisfied customer. They are my new go to pair of bibs. My first pair I used for 2 yrs solid for Sat and Sun rides because none of my other shorts came close to the Assos comfort, fit and tightness on my legs. So washing them after every ride eventually took their toll on the them and they began to wear on the hip area and eventually on the butt to the point where a small hole developed. That pair is now reserved for spin class and shorter weekday rides. I will eventually buy a second pair because the difference is very noticeable between the Assos and my Pear Izumi bibs. These bibs are worth the extra $$, treat your butt to a pair.
Needed something reliable with no flashy graphics that went with all my team kit and other jerseys. These bibs are so supple- laser cut edges are kinda rad- they disappear on me. Chamois is a bit sparse but still solid.
Currently ride for exercise anywhere from 19 to 75 miles. I bought large and they fit me well at 5' 9" 200 lbs. I think these shorts are very fairly priced. These are my favorite shorts that I have bought over the last few years, I ended up buying two pairs.
I actually really like these shorts once I have them on. It's getting them on that's a challenge. I use a liner short to extend the days I can wear a pair of shorts and with the snug fit it's an effort to get the legs of the liner shorts straightened out inside these shorts. Once on, they have plenty of padding and support for longer rides. Out on a ride I have absolutely no complaints. Because I ordered online I wasn't able to try them on first or I may have gone up from a medium to a large. Hard to say for sure without trying the large on.
