Strengths:    Good design, good construction, GREAT insert

Weaknesses:    Bland looks, high leg-cut, "shiny"

Bottom Line:   
By far, the best bib short for the buck. Capoforma is the domestic version of Bergamo, the Italian cycling apparel company. The chamois insert is the best I've ridden on, compared to Craft, Pearl Izumi, Descente, Castelli, Giordana, and that other really expensive one...and has proven to withstand multiple washings without breakdown. You can spend all day in the saddle and not even have a hint of chaffing or sores - chamois cream or not.

Stitching is top-notch and the big straps are nice and wide and supportive.

These are more "European-style" so the legs only come down to 4" or so above the knee. If you don't mind showing a little leg, or more accurately, that sexy tan-line from your previous shorts, you'll be ok.

Only downside is a rather lack-luster appearance and that shiny spandex look from the late 80's/early 90's. Otherwise, these shorts are the best for the money - hands down.
