HUGE fan of these bib shorts

These FR-C bib shorts are perfect in every way. I only wear bibs now as these have convinced me to change over. I have bought my second pair of these as I ride a lot, and now I am thinking to buy their full length bib tights. I don't feel them on me, the seams are truly seamless feeling, and I don't feel the shoulder straps. The chamois is small, but placed perfectly. I love it... no big diaper butt, no sausage leg, and so long as I use my chamois cream, I don't think about my crotch on century rides as I have with other shorts. The waist rise is perfect and it does not pinch me off at the gut to create any nasty ride bloat / gas issues. No riding up or shifting of material in any way. Put them on, they stay put, and you don't think about them. I am a huge fan of these bib shorts, and only wish Giordana would just make their jerseys slightly longer in the front. Until they do, I go with Capo or whatever, for the jersey. I am 5' 7-1/2" and weigh 130-135 and I wear a Medium size. If ANY taller, I would recommend the Large size.
