Why big, tall, chubby, fluffy, heavyset, and fat athletes should wear cycling bib shorts during their spin workouts

Don’t be afraid of the very pervy-looking cycling bib. While it looks a lot like fetishwear, cycling bib shorts make these spin class godsends in 2XL.  Personally, I did a lot of research and chose to order three pair of Pearl iZUMi Men’s Escape Quest Cycling Bib Shorts from Amazon; however, American-made Aero Tech Designs Big Men’s Top Shelf Padded Cycling Bib Shorts go up to 5XL.While they look bizarre, embarrassing, and grotesque on their own if you’re not a lithe cyclist, the built-in shoulder straps keep the bike shorts up no matter what.
