Very true 180 Sterling for a jersey and 220 for bibs is saucy.
I saw today that Chain Reaction have an Easter sale, Pa.
The dhb Blok jersey is down to 37 quid.
Have found the dhb stuff to be excellent without exception.

Looking for a pair of bib shorts, narrowed down to the following.. any advice / preference to what I should go for? I’m a casual cyclist, mostly two hour cycles.. I don’t want anything too light - would like some warmth so I can wear into autumn..

The Enduras are excellent. Really good pad. Their service department are top.

Also tried the DHB. Good fit. Pad isn’t as good as the Endura. As Stated, the Castelli are very good but tend to be pricier. Fit is very racy too. Size one up

If you're spending that type of money I can highly recommend the Galibier Regale.
Size up one (says it in the description)

It's the only Galibier pair I have. They're a great pair of bibs.
Anyone got the peleton? I need a pair of bibs. All the good weather had me on a very reserve pair today.

I’m doing the Castelli Easter challenge on Strava so might treat myself! Any particular model you recommend?

New Bibs and Shoes

I am looking for new bibs. For 3-4 hr rides. I see a similar question in clothing 101 so i will follow that too. Budget in around €100-150. Most of my current bibs are aldi/lidl and spin 11.



Also looking decent stiffish spd shoes. I use Shimano mt34 but would like more of a road style shoe but with spd cleats. I am liking Sidi but they are quite expensive. Budget around €150 ish also, maybe a bit more. I am size 43 in a runner, Size 44 in Shimano.

+1 on the Endura FS260, they are my go to bibs. Better fit for me than the Castelli Endurance bibs (L). The pad is good for long hours in the saddle.

i'd highly recommend the Castelli Entrata bib shorts. I've picked up three pairs recently. About 90 odd euro on Mantel with free shipping ATM.

I find the size charts accurate for me, it suggests L and indeed that is the right size. For Castelli I'm XL, for my club gear I'm XXL. Based on what you listed above it looks like an S for you. Here's a link to the size chart.

Yeah I seen that. I am kind of bordering. A few reviews of 80kg go for medium. I have large thighs. I might go with the medium. I can send them back i think

I just checked my lbs and they have them at the same price as everyone else so I'll go in there. Now to find decent spd shoes. I need spf 50+ arm covers so I'll pick them up while I'm in. I got a scar on my arm that was treated this year and I was advised sunscreen every hour or base layer.

So I went into my lbs and tried on small endura bibs. I couldn't get them past my knees. Medium were perfect. My legs are not in proportion to my arms. Fat thighs, skinny arms. Lbs was same price as crc and wiggle. They only just came in stock that day so I was lucky.

Contact the company and ask them. Possibly buy 2 sizes & return 1 if unsure.
