    compression bibs?

    I bought some LG bibs about 3 weeks ago and love the way they feel compared to shorts.
    I am looking to get another pair of bibs this week and have been looking at the Garneau compression bibs.
    Is there a noticeable difference with compression type clothing? I have read a bit online about compression shorts - but would like feedback from those of you who wear them good or bad not only limited to Garneau - am open to other brands as well.
    Thanks.

    I can't speak to LG Compression Bibs, but I do use compression tights from Cxw for recovery. Wear them after a ride, had them for a few years.
    I did ride with them under my bibs six or seven times and didn't feel that there was any benefit to it.
    One last thing, as with any fabric, compression clothing will lose some of it's tighness with time. I have my Cwx tights on now (hard ride), would say they are about 80% as tight as when new. If I had to buy again I would buy one size smaller too.

    I like the compression vs non. I like that tighter feel and the bib moves less when you are shifting around on a descent. They will also hold up better in a crash.

    They have enough in common to blast down it.
