Colourful Bib Shorts

Postby jjb331 » 19 Jun 2020, 7:09pm

Hi,
I'm looking for some bib shorts that are in colours other than black.
Attacus don't have much in stock from their collection, any other suggestions?

Thanks

Start Cycles, SportsPursuit, Planet X are names to look at but the range and sizes can be limited particularly with SportsPursuit as tey sell clearance lines, Start Cycles tend to sell end of line Scott clothing.

Shorts are black for a reason. I have a friend who has some white shorts, they become see-through if they get wet. I once had some purple shorts, bought from the York Rally, which should have been this weekend, I believe.

I was standing behind a woman in the queue at the cafe today and she had some red Castelli shorts on.

I’m not sure I would call them 'colourful', but I bought some navy blue bibs from Gore this week. They are the most comfortable I own (compared to Decathlon, Altura, Madison and Endura). They also do black with yellow/red/etc. if that would suffice but, as above, they tend to be black for good reason.

Thought the gamma settings on my monitor were KO'd when I looked at the Natrino shorts, the Acqua E Sapone look a bit better. Prefer black shorts cause when you have a roadside maintenance issue you can wipe your fingers in them.

I bought some white swimming trunks once. Same result.
