So I ride a fixie, and as you all know, fixed gears can't coast so therefore our legs are continuously in a spinning motion. My seat, I'm thinking, is made out of leather, and I wear dark blue levis most of the time. I love levis <33. Anyways, recently, my levis started to fade in the butt area. The part of the jeans that keep rubbing against the seat because of my legs keep spinning finally started to fade. So if you look at me from the back and look down there, you'd be able to see two lines in my butt area.
Fortunately, I have another pair of levis, same jeans but in new condition, and I washed the two together to get the new jeans to get some of its dye off and donate it to the faded jeans. It worked a bit. The butt area in the faded jeans is a lot less noticeable and I'm satisfied now.
A friend of mine told me to get a seat cover thats made out of fabric or cotton and put it over my leather? seat to get the fading to stop. I bought a lycra seat cover for like 3 bucks on amazon. Would this lycra seat cover keep my jeans from fading?
Any of you guys have similar experiences as me? What was your method on stopping this?
