It's all in the under carriage. Just like the bottom brackets of vintage bikes... Butt Butter and Loose Balls Rule!

On the parts that either rest on or rub on the saddle. Helps the pad in your shorts or bibs move with you, so that if somethings going to rub it'll be the bibs on the saddle, not the skin on the bibs. I used to use it only on long rides, but now I use a smaller amount on shorter rides and it's a big help. That, along with careful choice of well-fitting bibs I can ride for > 4 hours without chafing or hot spots.

His feelings were hurt by post #10. Doubt he'll read any more.
Anyway, I use Assos cream. Pretty much says it all.

At the risk of answering the question...

It doesn't take much. Start by applying a small dab anywhere you were "on fire" after the last ride.

And think about getting a better saddle.

FWIW, I go through an 8 oz. tube of the stuff in about a year, applying it for every ride longer than my 10-12 mile commute.

Ironic that he should get so butt-hurt. He should have applied the Assos cream by post 6.

Bingo.

These people saying that they only use chamois creme (note correct Assos spelling) for longer rides are just crazy, I only skip it when it's pretty cold outside. Otherwise it goes on for every ride. I ride 5-6 days per week, and I apply the stuff liberally...And a jar gets me through about two months. That's cheap.

So the "Monkey Butt" powder I've been using isn't meant for humans, but for pet Orangutans?

Without getting into Too graphic detail, where do you all spread this stuff?
I`m not asking which is the best cream, just where do you all apply it?
If you really need Chamois Cream, you'll know where to apply it.

Don't worry about the put-downs... there are a few people on this forum who probably spend more time making fun of posts or insulting the OP than they spend on their bikes. Similar to most forums: ⅓ positive helpful people, ⅓ didn't quite understand the question, and ⅓ junior high school mean...as you may see from responses to this post :-)
As for me, I've never tried chamois cream, but I probably should. Sometimes the saddle makes me a little raw.

roadsnakes Don't let the haters get you down. I thought this was a good question and I am sure others on the forum did too. I do not use chamois cream as I do not want to deal with the mess. Three or four years ago when I started getting bad saddle sores I started using body glide applied directly to the skin. That, combined with a strict regiment has pretty much reduced my exposure to saddle sores to zero. Body glide is my recommendation.
