I'm looking for two pairs of bib shorts that will be my first choice for trainer sessions. Something durable, something black, something non-flashy, subtle logos. I've found the following...any opinions?

Assos S7 Neo Pro
Assos Factory Outlet
$93

De Marchi Aerodinamico
Competitive Cyclist
$50 (normally $135)

Santini Primo
Competitive Cyclist
$55 (normally $125)

Giordana Sport
Competitive Cyclist
$85 (normally $190)

Santini Tempo
Competitive Cyclist
$60 (normally $125)

De Marchi Classico
Competitive Cyclist
$75 (normally $150)

My current favorite bib shorts are Q36.5 Miles Gregarius and Eliel Cycling Laguna Seca.

My faves are the NeoPro. Unlike most bibs, they are cut low in front. Nice medium-thick chamois. Wide straps. Good wide grips in the cuffs. Like other Assos I have tried, they may feel a little weird when you first put them on, but conform nicely when on the bike. I have 2 or 3 pair and thinking of getting another one since they are being discontinued.

They are discontinued, but look at the Mille - basically the same product.

To the OP - if these are for the Turbo, have you thought about Half Shorts (waist shorts)?

If you are in no hurry, try Castelli Inferno.
I bought a pair for $90CAD ($72USD) from Wiggle during the off-season.
The only size was small & they had 10+ in stock (WOW)!

Not on the list but I prefer my £44.99 "Merlin Wear Elite Cycling Bib Shorts" over my Assos: https://www.merlincycles.com/merlin-wea ... 78605.html Has great reviews, too
