I wear bog standard running tights under my bibs from about November-mid March.

Why would one wear tights under their bibs? So rather than sitting on the chamois, intended to decrease friction and therefore chafing, saddle sores etc. the first layer is a pair of tights, negating all the benefits that a good chamois provides?

Agreed. Chamois against the sensitive bits. Tights over bibs...

Never experienced any of the aboe issues wearing them underneith. I find it more comfortable and it looks better (roadies are supposed to be vain right?) Ridden 250km+ rides like this and been supremely comfortable and warm/dry.

I've got the Rapha deep winter tights (without chamois) and they're brilliant for anything below 5 degrees C.

Great for commuting on the coldest days, I've never been cold wearing these. In fact I can normally get away with wearing a little less on top as I tend to get too warm in them.

I didn't like Rapha deep winter tights at all, because they are not windproof from the lumbar area. Nothing worse than a chilly wind blowing to your sweaty lower back. A sure way to get a lumbago at least for me...

I bought some Giordana formared bib tights with the fleece liner. The most expensive, and nicest piece of kit I own. Good down to about 25-30 degrees and a light drizzle. Any colder than that and I'm indoors!

Without reading through all the previous posts I'll weigh in. I use Gore thermal bibs without chamois and my regular bibs underneath. Good for approx 20F with other proper winterwear

Same approaching I take with good results.

Most chamios are only stitched in after all. A craft knife and a bit of patience is all that's required.

I've unpicked them out of my 3 pairs of Sportful No-Rain Thermals last month because this spring I finally took a "gamble" on some Mille S5's and now nothing else will ever seat me on a bike again.

I also have a pair of rapha deep winter tights. Wear them over a set of short bibs. Never frozen anything they covered, biggest problem for me is keeping toes warm (Thin socks, Wool socks, winterboots and neopren over them and i sometimes still end up with cold toes on long icy rides)..

Ps. I also greatly prefer my winter tights with no chamois.
