    Hi All,
    Does anyone know if a small hole in a pair of bib shorts can be repaired.
    I went down in these and would like to continue using them as they are my favorite pair.
    Thanks in advance,

    Bryan

    Yup. How big is the hole, and what shape is it?

    That isn't too bad of a hole. It should be easy enough to fix. Just get some thread and stitch it right up. You shouldn't notice a difference.

    P.S. How did you crash?

    Thanks for your reply, I went over the handle bars a while ago after hitting a chunk of concrete in the bike lane.
    I broke the ishium in my pelvis but have since healed up and am putting in more miles now.
    Strangely enough the bike shorts faired a lot better than I did.

    Yep, that sounds about right. I call my cycling shorts my super shorts because despite the wrecks and abuse that they go through, they have rarely ever ripped. I can honestly only remember one or two incidents.
    I just wish my skin was like that, because my skin always ends up much worse.
