Bike Bibs rubbing on ?????

trying to keep this G rated. I have Pearl Izumi Elite and Attack bibs which are very comfortable minus the friction on .... I have tried repositioning but it almost seems the pad is a little small. Is this a common problem? Are there other bibs that dont have this problem? Is there a trick that envolves duct tape or something similar? If this pad is too small for me I cant believe it fits many others.

I have no trick, just want to say that the problem exists in their mtb short inserts as well. The pad is too short in the front leaving the spandex to chafe the uncovered parts. No amount of repositioning or tucking has helped.

Step 1: Apply liberally to either
A: Your gonads
B: Your chamois
Step 2: Ride easier

Some kit just fits certain individuals poorly. I have a set of bibs that for some reason always rubs me wrong on one side (fortunately not the "boys" though). A little BodyGlide or chamois cream etc can help. Er..., ah..., to keep a G rating it also sometimes depends on how one is endowed/built AND where that friction actually is occurring. It the boys are getting chaffed and are in the way then pulling/tucking up into the bibs can work as long as the bibs are fit enough to hold you securely in that position. If the friction is under the boys on the perineum then chamois cream and sometimes a saddle adjustment/resizing are in order. All really depends on specifics which admittedly are a tough public conversation when one wants to be "G." Rest assured though, almost everyone here has heard or experienced it all before. There are easy solutions but it does help to know where the friction is specifically...

I have one pair of PI bibs and the chamois seam near my wedding tackle can rub me the wrong way. If I tuck, maneuver, shift, and rearrange to the proper spot they don't bother me. I don't wear them very often and will probably will retire them once I pick up another set of bibs that don't rub me the wrong way. It almost seems like they're made for a more upright riding position.

Since we are all built with a bit of asymmetry it can sometimes help to aim the saddle a bit to one side.
