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.
Time VXRS Ulteam (7.16 kg)

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
