Default If I Could Walk That Way...

...I wouldn't need the talcum powder.

Quite seriously, I'd like to hear what others do to combat chafing in
the, ahem, region where legs, clothing, seats, and sweat come together.
Variations in clothing, unfortunately, are not an option for me. What
works? Talc? Lotion? Baby oil? Crisco? 90-weight gear lube? I'm
ready to try just about anything. I read somewhere that Eddie Meyrcx got
this problem so bad that his doctor prescribed a month naked in bed.
Unfortunately, that's not an option for me either.

I ride to work, and there is a dress code at my work: no jeans, no
shorts, some other stuph. I need to arrive at work ready to to to work.

UnderArmor boxer briefs fit in the right spot to limit chafing:

Comfy but without the padding - although real bike shorts are definitely
the ticket on longer rides.


Heh... I have the same problem with the bike shorts I currently own.
I'm not sure where to begin troubleshooting the ahem situation....

Saddle?
Fit?
Shorts?
???

Any ideas....?

To mitigate any existing chafing problems, you mean?
Zinc oxide diaper cream. It's cheap, readily available
at any drugstore, and it's effective. I find the stuff
with aloe is especially soothing. If you use it, you
should still keep your shorts well-laundered, and not
wear them for any longer than you have to.


cheers, & anybody laffs, gits a knuckle samwidge ;-)

Yes, this is excellent stuff to heal a rash. To prevent a rash, I like
A&D ointment (or generic), it's a mix of Vaseline and lanolin, which
prevents skin breakdown from moisture and friction, it's also used to
prevent diaper rash.
