Hey everyone, how can I prevent this? This area is wearing out so fast on my levi 501s. Surprisingly, its going fine on my Buffalo jeans.
friction is inevitable.
You'll have a pretty sweet pair of chaps soon.
embrace your crotch wear
You need 200$ jeans to prevent this.
I've always wondered how people wear out their pants so fast.
My saddle has abrasion marks from where my jeans rub. After my ride there's balled up pieces of old saddle stuck to my ass.
It's inevitable. Check this out on prolly's blog:
Wait so you guys ride in the SAME PAIR of jeans EVERY DAY?
Don't they... uh... smell bad?
Mine do not smell bad.
I have also never had pants be destroyed due to riding.
I ride in a few different pairs and they're all beat down and patched up.
One pair in particular is really brutal on the saddle/crotch though.
i dont ride in tight jeans, so they wear a lot less.

You need the new Levi Fixie-Oh-Ones. They have a new colorway for street slamming.
Cyclists of the world, unite! You have nothing to lube but your chains!
^ hahah, nice.
When I had a perforated seat, it ate though jeans.
I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC
Get a pair of Carhartt UB01...if you hurry, you might still be able to get some that were made in the states.
The sarcastic side of me wants to recommend Self Edge's 21oz denim cycling jean. The salt from your sweat will break the denim down before they wear through.

Try cycling shorts. They feel rad.
Try briefs, I never looked back
