Wow! I have never worn anything from Louis Garneau before. I am very impressed.
The Material is cool and does a great job of wicking. I live in Oklahoma and it gets absurdly hot here. These bibs do a great job keeping me cool. The cuff around the "mid" thigh is great. After my rides I don't have a painful mark around my thigh from the cuff but they still are tight enough during my ride. The chamois is very comfortable. I typically ride Capo and find this chamois to be less bulky but more comfortable and more supportive. I have both colors and love them both. If you're only buying one set I recommend the orange, it is good for safety and looks great in person.
As for fit, which is always a tough debate for me, I have the large. I wear a Large in Capo and Medium in Nike. I'm a 32x31, almost a 31x31 in most jeans as a reference point for you.
As a side note: UPS damaged mine during transit. They caught their error and sent the kit back before I even saw it. Once I realized this I called realcyclist.com and within 2 minutes they had a new kit en route to me so I would have it in time. Great service! I cannot even think about shopping anywhere else!
I have these on my GIANT TCR Advanced SL1, with SRAM RED. Great pedals! They have a low profile, easy in and easy out (the new plate design works well and does not wear much), great power transfer, easy adjustability, and a smooth rotation.
I have had these for about 8 months now. I have them in white, wish I could justify buying a pair in silver as well.
I weigh 165 (as a reference). I currently have plain sole inserts, not carbon. The boot is very comfortable in all conditions. It gets very hot here and these ventilate very well, in the winter I wear a booty. For my style of riding (mostly rolling hills and distances between 30-85 miles) the stiffness is very comfortable while still transferring most of my power to the crank. I have a narrow foot and they fit well without any rubbing or discomfort in my heel.
I believe that what you buy for your foot is the most important purchasing decision. With that said, I will be buying these again!
