My ears get cold because of the earings in them, but they stay warm once I put a wool hat on.

I don't have any as of yet, just wondering if there are any that are problems when it comes to biking. And yeah a prince albert could be a consideration.

Gotta be, I'm guessing where they wrapped it in cloth. Still insane

no problems whatsoever. But like with any activity, just be aware that it's there.

I don't have any problems with piercings and riding. Of course all of mine are "north of the border", so... (9/16" lobes & 10g Conches)

I do know that my lobes get cold quicker than normal lobes. So take that into consideration, especially if they're stretched, and even more so if you're wearing eyelets/tunnels. (more surface area = colder faster)

+1 on all of the "below the belt" piercings

I've had to downsize my HCH a few times after barshing it on my top tube. Other than that it's just heat management for the ones on my head.

mine do the same, depending on how my head is positioned. maybe there's something with 2's and the pitch it produces.

My nipple rings used to get a bit cold until I found these cool, windstopper band aids for them.

Yeah, you can get some wind drag on bigger plugs, or thicker rings but so far no problems. Oh I sometimes get tangled in my helmet.

For big lobes btw I found that wearing solid front silicone plugs works the best for me. Kaos Softwear is the manufacturer. And they're squishy, too!

Also, I have plugs and CBRs that match my bike. I know I am sick, you don't need to point it out.

it took a while to get my helmet staps adjusted to not be annoying against my 1 1/2" lobes. i've never had any problems with any of my genital piercings, although i would def. take a few days off from riding if i were to get any new ones.
