Looking to buy a new set of bibs. Found a good deal on a pair of last years Castelli pro y bib shorts. Also good deals on last years Pearl Izumi ultrasensor and areosensor bibs. Is there that much of a difference betweens last years model to this years.

Any thoughts?

Castelli Y Pro bib short

I use seven or eight different brands/models, the Y Pro bib is one of the best for me.

I bought two pairs of Castelli Y-Pro 3 bib shorts early last year and I now I hate to ride with anything else. I use them for all rides except spin classes. Some of the labels have peeled a bit, but the chamois has been great and the material is still elastic. I wash them in the sink with woolite after every ride (hate to throw used shorts in the hamper to fester until laundry day), occasionally wash them in a front-loading machine, and I'll probably get another season out of these two pairs. I'll never go back to non-bib shorts for outdoor riding, and I'll never go cheap on shorts either. Get the Castelli's, you'll like them.

In what way exactly do your bib shorts feel or wear differently than your non-bib shorts? Just curious if I'm missing something by wearing non-bibs only.

I think Hincapie makes the best ones out there. They are also cheap for what you get.

I bought a pair of Hincapie knickers for Christmas (got a gift and this was the only brand of knickers in the store that were in my size). I had never used Hincapie before. I must admit that I have been extremely pleased and they are a value. The bibs are not cheap but I believe comparable to bibs in the $150 range from other manufacturers at a lower cost.
