My first impression wasn't great. The chamois was uncomfortable and I preferred the lower front and thinner, wider-set straps of my Castelli Podium bibs. After quite a few hundred miles, though, the Neo Power has become my favorite. I've gotten used to the chamois, to the point that it even makes the cheap saddle on my B bike feel okay. The real win, though, is the fabric and compression fit. Just amazingly comfortable. Not to mention they seem to be very well made. Hope I can get a few seasons out of them, but given their low price / high value, I won't complain if I don't. Love, love, love these!
