    I used peanut butter for a while, but now I go between Bag Balm and Aquaphor. Sometimes I use a base of Lanacane is some spots.

    I find it useful to get everything adjusted just right before the ride. A poorly located wrinkle (shorts, not me although that doesn't help either) or seam can cause me a problem that will require some cream or medication for many rides to follow.

    I use Chamois Butter probably out of habit more than need. Chafing was a problem in the past, which lube seemed to help. Don't honestly know whether I need now or not, but not changing a good thing!

    I've not used Chamois Buttr so far this year, but the Saturday Cyclepath ride just hit 57 miles last week and I felt it. I'll be using it for this Saturday's ride, but not for the mid-week 30 milers.

    Chamois Buttr- European formula. Has a little menthol or something similar for the "cheap thrill" tingle. If I don't use it, we have issues, and we don't want issues...

    Didn't use it for the first 3+ years of riding...but I tried it and I like it. Not for saddle sores, but more between the legs, although I use it on the chamois too.

    I only use it for long event rides, not for commuting or everyday rides.

    Hey it works for me and that's all the matters. Sort of like Brylcream " a little dab will do you"
    +1 Assos not only protects against chafing and bacterial infection but also against fungus. This is an advantage over Bag Balm etc. particularly if you ride where it is hot and humid.

    Been there, done that. Now being older, I can understand why they were so cranky.

    I haven't to this point. In October I'm trying my first Century (115 miles actually) so I have been considering different elements of a long ride as in better shorts/bibs and butter. Keep posting group, this old dog needs to learn all the tricks he can.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I use just a touch of Bag Balm (because it's cheaper and it works) on most rides of 40-100 miles. On the 7-day AIDS/LIfeCycle, I use Chamois Butt'r because they supply it and it's easier to pack the the Bag Balm. I like either.
