Not gonna pay for 5 of them and find out it is just butt'r repackaged (you would be amazed at how many cremes there are out there that do this).

    Thanks for reminding me of the name of that product. I was giving another cycling group a list of the creams etc. which I've tried and which do not work, and could not remember the name of that particular product.

    First of all, Lanolin is the oil from wool, so if you have any allergy to wool, you should probably not use a product containing this oil, especially in such a sensitive place.

    Second, the water based products like Chamois Butt'r and Assos cream have lasted much longer that a few minutes for me. Both have lasted in excess of 3 hours on the bike. In addition, they wash completely out of the chamois when washed, leaving no residue.

    I for one, like the "cooling" effect of the Butt'r and Assos, I've used and sampled other products, but these are the two that work best for me. I've used both for a long time now.

    Just my 2 cents worth. Some of you may try this gentleman's product and it may work for you. Just keep riding!!

    I agree and lube more than the butt.

    I use dznuts, it is water based and I have no problem with it lasting. I did 140 miles last week and it was still in place when I showered it off. I can't help but think that some of the posts are biased marketing.

    Bodyglide is the only one that DOES work for me. Your experience doesn't apply to everyone.

    I've never really felt the need to use the stuff but a local guy has me intrigued with his new stuff (it appears to be new anyways). Has anyone ever tried this chamois cream?

    Body Glide worked pretty good for me too. But if you're able to make a quick rest room stop about half way through a long ride, baby wipes on the area in question, worked better.

    Two wheels good. Four wheels bad.

    I wonder if anyone else remembers that Copenhagen commercial with Earl Campbell? Classic. Anyhow, yeah, I did it then that way, and I do it now.... this way.

    I purchased some of this (button hole cream) from Psimet a few weeks ago and I am very happy with it. It is the best chamois cream I have used.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    Epic necro.

    I use chamois cream on any ride more than 5miles. It's not necessarily a comfort thing for me, but a hygiene thing.

    Seeing as you and I have the same source more than likely, straight from the old goat himself, I have to agree. After 100+ miles in the saddle, when you peal your shorts off, you will want to eat them.

    OK, I just threw up a little in my mouth, but I do remember Rob saying he put it on his toast once.

    HAHA! Speaking of eating it, my mom saw it on my table, but I didn't have a label on it, it was either before Wayne knew what he was going to call it, or before he printed up the stickers. My mom opened it, smelled it, and immediately applied it to her lips, claiming she enjoyed the tingling sensation from it. Wayne still laughs every time we cross paths about that.

    I use a generic A&D Ointment from WalMart. It lasts a long time in the saddle. Seems to wash out just fine.

    I have never put it on toast....but a topping on ice cream would be interesting.

    Wayne is the man - the Chuck Norris of the Chicago Cycling Scene. It was my respect for him that had me trying the product. It was it's outstanding performance that had me selling it as a distributor. I am biased, but I have some very good rumors that it might make it into an upcoming issue of a prominent cycling magazine....maybe we can all say we knew him when.
