Until this point I had only ever worn shorts. Been hearing the hype for ever about bibs from a friend so I decided to buy some. I had only every worn Pearl Izumi shorts, but I had been using Castelli jerseys for a few years and loved them so I though I would try their bibs. I bought two pair of the Presto and two pair of the Endurance Bibs. The biggest thing I have to say about these is the chamois is so much better than the Pearl Izumi Elite In-R-Cool shorts I had been using. I had a few sores from my old shorts and as soon as I got on the bike with the Castelli Prestos I did not feel any pain the whole 30 mi ride. Heck after the first 10 minutes I was trying to remember what all colors they had so I could order some more and just what I should say in my review.
The next day I tried out the Endurance and they are just as comfortable. Which I guess says something to how good the Kiss3 chamois is because I thought they both felt great. I rode 55 mi on the Endurance and had no pain. I was sold.
As for all the negative reviews about quality and decals coming off. I have washed them once and let them air dry and didn't see any wear on the logo or lettering. But as much as I like these for the styling I care more about how they feel when riding. I am not usually that concerned with how I look 30 miles into a ride. Even if the lettering comes off, just peel it off and they still look really stylish to me. And if somebody wants to know what brand I am wearing they can still read it plastered all over my Castelli jersey.
