Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Just the tip

About 99% of the time when I'm riding without lycra on my shorts rub the tip just so, such that it is incredibly uncomfortable. The farther back in the saddle and farther forward I am on the bars the worse it is. Does anyone else have this problem? Are boxer briefs the answer?

Boxer briefs may help quite a bit.

When I fist got my Brooks B17 and didn't have it dialed in just right, the damn thing would literally feel like it was pushing my junk inside my body when I wore boxers. It was gnarly.

I get the same issue in boxers. I sometimes get it when wearing MTB shorts also. Depends on the pair and the chamois.
Tried briefs and they weren't the answer either.
Never had these issues SS, so I may just give up the cog... or maybe not.
I am going to try liners soon...


I made a similiar thread not long ago... Underoos it didn't get too far. I think a few people are uncomfortable actually discussing things outside of aerospokes, track hubs, and which bike "you" think "they" should get.

I think we all know that the answer is to ride naked. No nasty clothing rubbing your junk that way...
