Guys: Where do you put *it* when wearing bibs?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Guys: Where do you put *it* when wearing bibs?

So, I'm sure this has been asked before, but I didn't quite know what to search for... I'll get right to the point: Where are you supposed to stash your "member" in your cycling shorts/bibs? Currently, I just sorta put my bibs on and push it down and to the side, but this isn't working out too well for me. After 30 minutes or so of being on the bike, I start to get numbness, and then it often moves up in the bibs and starts getting chafed by the fabric, which, needless to say, is not comfortable.

Please enlighten me.

Thanks,

Tom

lol... nice ascii art. I think that's actually how I've been doing it right now, for the most part. Maybe something else is to blame.

I had the chaffing/rubbing issue too so I did the same thing I did for my butt..... I lathered it up with Assos chamois creme! Heh, the tingling sensation from the chamois creme takes a bit of getting used to, but after that it's a much nicer ride.

I wrap mine up in duct tape and then staple it to my inner thigh. It keeps it in place real well and avoids chafing.

Despite the ripe potential for jokes, my real answer is: front and center.

Haha... maybe I'll give that a shot.

vpiuva, I think that picture explains it better than anything else could. Much obliged.

Really? They don't defeat the purpose of wearing nothing with bibs/shorts?

For the Tom Boonen look, duct tape it to your abdomen.

They are skin tight and I don't even feel them so it works for me.

Up, up and away (from the saddle, that is)!
Makes it less uncomfortable when you pass cute chicks out on a ride...

I don't take mine with me on rides. My wife keeps it locked in a box, stashed in a closet somewhere. Haven't seen it in months.

Haha... I think I have some fit problems on my bike then, because I have a serious lack of blood flow down there, and I don't think passing a cute chick would register...
