they supply quite a few companies with chamois. appears that they're the go-to people for companies when they want a high quality chamois.Keely wrote:wordnerd wrote:i can't compare them to assos, having never tried a pair. i just can't bring myself to spend that much money on a pair of bibs.
I was like that too. I saved up an bought a pair and I think they're the best knicks for long rides. I try to save up and get a new pair every 12-18 months because I love them. But if the Rapha bibs are just as good for less, then I'll have to try them.
i've been told quite a few times i should just save up and buy a pair but it seems like a ridiculous amount of money to spend on on a pair of bike knicks. but rapha don't make women specific bibs. if i want to try rapha bibs, i'd have to get the men's (but i have pretty skinny hips - skinner than some guys - so it shouldn't be a problem).
I thought that they did bibs for women, but it is only 3/4 or full length and not shorts. The 3/4 could be good for summer. Maybe we should email them asking for bib shorts.
