I'm just getting into the idea of long distance biking, so I've been reading a lot on this forum. I haven't seen this mentioned, and I wasn't able to finde anything using a google search, so i apologize if this is an over-asked question.
What sort of shorts do you wear touring? Do you take several pairs, or just one and try to rinse them frequently? I assume something with a chamois for comfort would be good. What about chamois cream? Or do you just train enough that you don't need it?
Also, for those of you who ride brooks saddles, do you prefer sprung or unsprung. I have a team pro on my fixed gear, but I would think either a b-17 or champion flyer would be better for long days in the saddle.
