Gift Ideas For Cyclists and More Free Stuff!

They are different than triathlon shorts.  Bike shorts or bibs are not meant to get wet in a swim, they are made for riding.  They have much more padding and are designed to keep you in the saddle longer and more comfortable.

These bibs are comfortable, perfectly padded and developed to prevent fatigue and help your overall performance.  Castelli has been producing high quality cycling gear since 1876 and has mastered the art of a great pair of shorts.  $160, this is an investment in comfort.
