Looking at a few long rides in the coming weeks and was wondering what winter bibs people are using at temperatures of around -10C and still feel comfortable in.

Cheers. Giel

I normally wear compression tops when it's freezing. Like the Skins tops. I use CCC ones though.
Keep me nice and warm on below freezing days.

Merino wool for me! And summer gloves under my Sealskinz winter gloves, double socks, a Buff, and a beanie under my helmet :shock:

I've used endura thermastat bibs, nice and warm but watch out for sizing, for the long of leg and thinner types(i.e not me). I've found protecting my extremites more important though for keeping warm. I have a Rapha merino cap and its fantastic.

I wear the same cycling pants winter and summer, and never had real problems with temperatures like these.

Levis's 501, best cycling pants ever.
