Long bib inseam lengths is the rage right now. I think it's so people can feel "pro" as I've noticed a lot of shorts in the peloton getting longer too over the past few years. A friend and I were talking a few days ago and we both agreed that we'd kill for shorts that had 9.5" / 23cm inseams. The fashion seems to be dictating shorts with 11.25" / 28.5cm inseams. I don't get it and it really limits the number of shorts I can buy without having the fabric run over the top of my knees and into the crease behind my knees. Talk about annoying.

Don't feel too bad. I brought the same topic up a few months ago: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=92575" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


Sorry for gravedigging, but I've been thinking about this for a while, and wanted to see what others had to say too. For my straight black bibshorts, I've been tempted to go to female bibshorts just to get a shorter inseam length. I'm 66"/167cm tall, and most of my bibshorts (various companies) range at about 10" unstretched. Grrr. Inseam to knee, I'm 14.5"... The inseam on a pair of Voler women's bibs = 7.75" and the men's = 9"

Maybe I want to look like Moser, Anquetil, or the rest of those dudes with their short-shorts? :P

I'm the other way. I like the longer inseams. Partly because I have fairly long femurs but I also just prefer the fit.

Giordana are long, so I'm using these currently. Tried Castelli Free Aeros and they came up too short. Ditto Gore, just.

:hmm: Just to be clear, you're currently unsatisfied with your look on the bike, so your solution is to put on womens clothes? :lol:
