Sizing?

I'm 5' 7", and I measure 35" in the chest and 33.8" in the waist. Would you recommend an S or an M?

Thanks!

I have the Pace Roubaix bib short, is the material of the Trace bib short is similar? If it is different, how does it differ?

Trace is Lycra i.e.. thin...Roubaix is like Lycra with fleece inside...

What size vs. Aeron race Large

I have a dhb Aeron Race Cycling Bib which is Large and fits perfect. I am 180cm tall.
However, looking at the size guide for Trace it is recommending Medium.

So is the Trace Medium approx same size to the Aeron Race Large?
i ve had Aeron pro in medium but small in the Trace...if thats any help

Diameter of drops

Hi,

I own a set of Alloy bars and love them, apart from the diameter of the drops - a bit skinny for me. What is the diameter of the tubing on the carbon ones? (ideally, just want to know is the diameter of the carbon drops bigger than the alloy bars?)
no same as alloy bars,so brake levers will fit
