I've enjoyed Giordana shorts in the past, so I decided to go for it with these and try something new, even in spite of my love affair with Louis Garneau bibs.
So far, they've been great. I wore them for my first century last weekend, and they performed admirably, probably quite a bit better than I did. I felt good for pretty much the entire ride. The pad did its business and didn't rub me raw or anything like that.
The bib straps are a bit weird at first, but they prove themselves on a long ride. These are actually a bit hard to put on because the straps don't have a lot of stretch to them, but after awhile, you forget they're there, since they're completely flat and don't dig in.
All in all, so far I'm really happy with these. The size chart was 100 percent on the mark, and they felt great even over 100 miles. I can't speak to durability yet, but so far, I rather like these.
