And, if you read the tags, they seem to have an "assos-like" policy, declaring you a customer for life, which leads me to believe they'll attempt to repair things even after the 90 day guarantee or work with you on it.Gearhead65 said:+1
I've retired all other biking shorts/bib after switching to Desoto 400 mile bibs/shorts. I can't imagine paying a ridiculous amount for Assos or others when there is something like this available.
In addition to being the most comfortable I've ever worn, they have small pockets on the legs and one on the back. Very convenient for keys, garage door opening, gels, phone, etc.
Plus, they're made in America.

Difference is you wouldn't have to send them to Switzerland for that service.
Eric turned me onto this in the beginning of the season. These have been a big part of being very comfortable on the bike.Mdeth1313 said:Ah, mail came today w/ my 6th pair of desoto bibs- now that it's the end of season, I managed to score this pair for $87 (shipped, rounded up to the nearest dollar). Life is good- too bad I can't justify purchasing anymore with the number I already have.
It didn't say 2010 or 2011 when I got mine, but I'd venture to guess it's the 2010, given the sale price-- I read desoto's description for the 2011 and I didn't read of any major changes. Last year they went from white at the leg bottoms to all black.MondoRock said:Just placed my order. Anyone know if gear & training is shipping the 2011 models? Not sure what changed but De Soto mentions 2011 model on their site. http://www.desotosport.com/products/product.asp?Category=mbottoms&ProdID=BB
