Words by James Luther | Using The BIB Stealth since February 2018
I have been riding a bike for long rides for a while now. Completing my first American century (100 miles) ride in the late 1970’s, and my first really long ride (in gym shorts and t-shirts!) of about 9,000km in about 1989 - meandering across the USA and Canada.
I decided to give RedWhite bibs a try about 3-4 years ago, and now they are the only bibs I have other than foul weather bibs.
I have since used them on a 2 month fully loaded tour in France of about 3,000km and 15,000m of climbing, and a 4 day 850 km self-supported sprint from Lyon to La Roche-sur-Yon.
In 2019, I finished the single stage Natchez Trace 444 (715km and about 4,000m of climbing) race in a pair of RedWhite bibs in 29 hours, well actually 2 pairs, and walked away pretty comfortably.
I have found my RedWhite Bibs to be comfortable, durable, and long lasting – even on long self supported tours where proper cleaning/care can be a challenge. I am extremely happy with their quality and have recommended them to a number of my friends. Planning on doing an epic ride again this coming summer – possibly self supported across Canada (Vancouver – Halifax), or a formal race like the Japanese Odyssey.
