    Crotch wear on my levis?

    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.

    It's totally comfortable to ride in them, but they just wear so fast. Different seat maybe?

    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:

    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.

    You need the new Levi Fixie-Oh-Ones. They have a new colorway for street slamming.

    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

    I never had any wear on my pants until I got this Bontrager saddle, which ate through my two pairs of jeans this summer. Now I have holes where my sit bones go.

    Get a pair of Carhartt UB01...if you hurry, you might still be able to get some that were made in the states.

    Turn 'em inside out and let them air out on the line. I had a girl smell my 501's (from February, but didn't wear every day) and she couldn't even tell that I've never washed them.

    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.

    I like that you felt the gender was important on this one. Anyone can smell ingrained SWASS.

    For me, it depends on the saddle. Anything with embroidery, like the Selle San Marco REVER, will eat thru pants like no one's business.
