    Chamois Creme anybody?

    Okay, all you Long Distance folks, do you use chamois creme, and what's been your experience with it?

    I've used Chamois Butt'r, but it seems to me to soak into either the cycling shorts pad or my, ahem, nether regions, after about 30-40 miles. Do you find you have to reapply it? Or am I just not using enough?

    Assos on the pad, bag balm on my bottom and other parts that may rub.
    Works great.

    For 20-60 miles the Assos alone works well.

    I heard about a new product

    That is FUNNY!

    I learned about this stuff when I was a runner:

    Aquaphor Original Ointment


    I use it to prep my chamois with very good results.
    2009 mileage = 14,738 miles; 2010 mileage = 15,234 miles; 2011 mileage = 17,344 miles; 2012 mileage = 11,414 miles; 2013 = 12,169

    +1.

    Good combo, especially for 100+ milers...

    i'd never heard of the stuff until this year, now i wouldn't go 30+ miles without it. Assos has the benefit of a brilliant name, too... it's my Chamois Tenderizer of choice.

    forgive a stupid question regarding the assos: it gets rubbed into the pad, not into the -ahem- personal regions?

    It doesn't matter which one you put the cream on, it ends up on both!
