It is an interesting picture. Did you use a ring flash?

That's scraping the bottom of the barrel, making him the butt of your jokes!

Cheeky!

I had similar problems a when I first started riding and tried all sorts of potions.  I finally solved the problem by getting a leather saddle,which of course breathes, smearing Conotrane on my rear before a ride, and making sure that I don't wear too many layers when it warms up as this caused me to get too hot and sweat and salty water is very abrasive as i guess you already know.

P.S.  You can get Conotrane by asking the pharmacist and is only £1.50 a tube.

If I'd realised it was you I was chatting to on the Witham ride, I'd have loudly asked about your posterior in front of everybody. ;D ;D ;D ;D

Cue the old Kenny Everett joke....

Two gay men in the left. One says "Hows you bum?", "Shut up!" says the other one. "Yes, so's mine, must be the cold weather"

Hello all.

I am new in here and I am sure that this has been mentioned many times.
I am in training for a London to Paris cycled ride and have suffered under-carriage wise as I have increased the miles, especially when I changed to a road bike.
My situation has improved a great deal since i lowered my saddle (only about 1/2 an inch) and apply udderly smooth to the inside of my shorts before setting off.
Hope this is of some use.

Crikey - fourth post, and you're telling us about your bum!  You're a bit forward, aren't you? ;D

You'll fit in here just fine.
Getting there...

I am going to be contrary and say that vaseline works fine for me. Especially the stuff with aloe vera in. Big gob on the chafeable bits and all is fine and happy for the next n hours. Clean thoroughly and reapply when appropriate.

Having done 2 weeks of 8-10 hours a day on the saddle and ended up with barely even a hint of chafe (which was something I was very concerned about) I was quite pleased.

Oh, and clean stuff. Properly clean.
