Proper bike fit or not, y'all will change your mind about padded shorts (AKA chamois) the first time you get a saddle sore. Think giant puss filled blister on your azz or inner thigh and you are close. By the time you start to notice discomfort or a "hot spot" due to friction it is probably too late.

There is a reason why pro's and people like triathletes who push big miles use shorts with a chamois. They prevent injury and infection. Riders have had to drop out of the Tour de France because of saddle sores.

And anyone who pushes big miles is also going to need some of this...

$8 and lasts a whole season. Money well spent IMO.

All y'all will change your mind about washing your shorts between rides when you get ringworm or that giant puss filled blister on your azz gets infected.
