Wear on cycling shorts/seat cover?
Back in the spring I put a new seat cover on my bike. I made the seat cover myself using a piece of blue jean material I had left over after making a pair of cutoff jeans. I have been riding the bike wearing the cutoff jeans ever since. I do have the problem of both the seat cover getting worn quickly and the cutoff jeans getting worn quickly. For some reason, I'm not surprised.
I have been seriously thinking about going back to regular cycling shorts and I was wondering if I could still, sensibly, use a blue jean cover on the bicycle seat or not. What kind of wear and tear should I expect on the shorts? This is definitely an area that I know nothing about. I don't mind the seat at all and have no reason to replace it other than the old cover was junk and the new cover is getting quite well worn already. Considering the fact that I can make a new seat cover using only one side of one leg of a pair of blue jeans I can get four seat covers from a pair of cutoff jeans.
Worse case scenario can someone suggest material to use for a seat cover that is readily available that won't breakdown/wear fast when riding in cycling shorts and/or blue jeans. For local rides I would continue riding in cutoffs but on longer rides I would use the cycling shorts.
