Castelli Bib Shorts - Need New Ones - Input Required

Hey All.

Well, my Pearl Izumi bib shorts have done me well for many years now, but are getting worn out, so it's time for some new ones.

I'm looking to purchase online from PBK, but they dont have any Pearl Izumi in stock in my size.

I'm thinking of ordering some Castelli shorts, but I've never worn them, so not sure what they are like.

Any input as to their quality and fit would be appreciated, as well as if they would size the same as the pearl izumi (I have size large, and they fit good).

Here is a link to what I'm thinking about getting.

Thanks in advance.

I have a pair of Castelli bibs that I picked up on the cheap from They are quite comfortable. The material is thin, yet seems durable. I've only used them on the trainer thus far. Also, they are cut fairly low in the front. I am 6'5", 196lbs and the inseam seems a little shorter than I like, but nothing out of the ordinary. Size XL works for me.
