    BUTT'r

    I don't mean to sound homophobic or anything, but do real men (or women) use Chamois BUTT'r?

    I tried it yesterday and quite enjoyed it. I wasn't as(s) sore after a quick twenty mile ride as I've been in the past.

    Any other users out there?

    Getting him to stay for breakfast was like pulling teeth though.

    I butt-R up before long rides especially if it is going to be a hot day. Definately reduces the chafing. I have three different brands in various states of being used up. I still like the Performace Brand that was more like bear grease and has a nice fragrance, but I don't think they sell it anymore.

    The other stuff (Chamois Butt'r I think - comes in a yellow and purple tube) seems lighter, but anything is better than nothing.Helps reduce saddle sores and that is my main goal for using the stuff. I hate saddle sores!! Keeps me off the bike and I get really cranky if I don't ride.

    BTW I'm a real man. Have three kids to prove it.

    6 months ago I would have made some
    kind of statement about not using it and real chamois
    but I got a sample somewhere or another and
    it really does help. Less chaffing is a good thing.
    If you're not too concerned with manliness or product
    conciousness you can also use bag balm.

    I used it for the first time on the STP this year, and I think it really helped. It did feel a little uncomfortable until it warmed up, though!

    OK, now a really stupid question. :confused:
    Do you apply the cream to the chamois or put it on your... er... ah... backside and wherever else?

    I apply it to my uhm, person.
    My thought is that applying to chamois isn't
    really needed since almost all chamois is
    synthetic now. With real chamois after washing
    it got really stiff and caused some horrendous
    chaffing if not properly treated.
    I'm sure I still have some wool and chamois
    shorts somewhere but hell if I'm gonna test
    that theory again. . .

    I put it on the chamois (real in one pair of shorts, synthetic in the other), then apply shorts to the person. I think that's what it said on the tube? And a much more appropriate method when sitting around in a gym full of people!

    I take it you tried that sample tube that came with your STP packet. Mine's still in a pocket in my gear bag. I still have the tube, I looked at it skeptically when I opened the packet. I might give it a try on my next ride (Trek Tri-Island)

    Yeah; I was going to buy a tube before the ride, but it showed up in my registration packet. I'll probably buy a tube before my next long ride.

    Assos Chamois Creme.

    Great stuff.

    I haven't had a saddle sore since I started using it.

    There's just s hint of witch hazel in it which makes it kind of...uhmmm...tingly.

    I haven't tried the bike specific cremes, but have used Udderrly Smooth, a product originally developed for cow udders, but now sold as a skin cream. I got it at Wal Mart.

    I applied it to the shorts, especially on the seams, as well as to myself, just to make sure it got to the right places!

    I've used Chamois Butt'r on the 2nd day of 2 day rides; it only helps for saddle sores, but not for bruising (I guess I need a tougher butt).

    FYI - Offering to apply someone elses Chamois Butt'r is not a good pickup line.

    I take it you know from experience. Did you get slapped?

    How does it wash out? Is it greasy? I am going to be doing some bike touring and will need to be hand washing my shorts often. Will that get it out?
