Chamois Butt'r Emergency

Ok....so I remembered my bike, shoes, water bottles, shorts, even my computer today to go riding at lunch. Remembered everything except the Butt'r. Any "at home" remedies for me to get me through the day??

If it's only a lunchtime ride, you should be fine. I've ridden many long distances without any sort of chamois cream.

If it's a short ride (less than an hour), I wouldn't worry about it. I only worry about lubin' up when I am doing the long rides.

I suppose if you are really worried, you could just get some lotion- a creme lotion, not a greasy vaseline.

I've heard people say Body Glide, Bag Balm, work well. Those are in any drug store.

I've used both Bag Balm and Vasoline and honestly can't tell the difference -- even when the ride is over.

I wonder about this business. I don't have anything, and wear my knicks only when going riding for the whole day. What is cream for?

I did over a hundred miles on Sunday without any lotions or creams. You'll be fine.

I've heard that peanut butter mixed with hot sauce (to thin it out a little) works wonders

If you need some sort of cream to get you through a lunch-time ride, you desperately need to do one of the following:

-- get a bicycle that fits you
-- get a better saddle
-- get better shorts

You shouldn't need any creams on rides under 100 miles ... unless it is extremely hot or wet.

It was 95 degrees out and 95% humidity, and it was a two hour lunch ride.

It's possible that my shorts may have something to do about it but lubricant costs a lot less than new/better shorts and it works!
