    only my tri-bike gives me rug burn

    I get pretty severe rug burn from this bike. in bike shorts and jeans.


    it is a kuota k-factor with a selle itallia saddle, a bontrager post, and a 100mm specialized stem.
    I thought the bike fit right, but to be getting rug burn in my crotch from it. i must be missing something.

    i don't see aero bars, but if you end up getting them this might help. otherwise, it's got a nice narrow nose section for the traditional tight aero cockpit of a tri/tt position.

    Excessively tall saddle height can cause chafing due to the rocking motion. What's going on with your bar angle?

    Go get a proper bike fitting. It may cost a few $$ but your crotch (and knees) will be happy.

    Saddle too high, saddle too far back/stem too long/frame too big.

    Not all cycling shorts are created equal. What kinds have you worn? Do you use chamois cream?

    If everything is fine, you may want to try the Selle SMP saddle.

    make sure your bike actually fits you. If it does, then it's probably the saddle.

    No. The saddle is the same height or higher than the bars. One way or the other, this set up doesn't match the rider. Aero bars usually are 4-6" inches below the saddle.
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.
