"Ordered a large, I would say I'm a medium but with certain brands you need to go up a size. Fit is good, medium would have been too racing tight fit.
Got this slightly cheaper with Wiggle discount, than on Morvelo sight.

"I rode an Orro Gold, so it it seemed a no brainer to upgrade.
It looks great on the bike, ok, paid more than I normally would. Like all chains, it needs cleaning regular to keep the colour from dulling.
Too early to tell if it last longer for the extra cost."

"Usually buy castelli but wanted to try a different brand. I've been disappointed with Dhb products in the past, but this does what it says on the tin. Sizing is accurate, looks good and good access to back pockets through the slits on either side."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Good Fit
Cons: Unadjustable

"I purchased size medium, being 68kg and 5 ft 10 in. I use them on the trainer , comfortable fit, not sure the pad would stand up to more than an hour and half ride though.
They have a long back to the short so would be fine for commute to work, your back would not get exposed to the elements. No draw string around waist.
For the price, value for money."
Pros: Comfortable, Great Value, Lightweight
Cons: Unadjustable

"Just purchased second pair, first pair two and a half years old, but still use. Size is accurate, gel padding still good and washing machine friendly.
Tried a pair of Lizzardskins, rubbish took ages to dry and after two months they ripped apart taking them off.
so went back to Gore.

Castelli Velocissimo Bib Short
The Velocissimo GT bib shorts offer exceptional fit and comfort thanks to the 10 panel construction, Kiss3 seatpad, Giro3 leg grippers and the Affinity Lycra. An everyday short that stands up against competition way above its cost.
 

What's the difference between the Velocissimo and the Velocissimo Due bibshorts?

The Velocissmo where slightly short in the leg, didn't feel right on me.
