So what is Charlie’s Bum Butter?
We asked Charlie The Bikemonger to explain in his own words..
So how did “Bum Butter” become a thing, a thing that has saved countless arses and even won Olympic Gold Medals? You wouldn’t believe me if I told you. Hold on… I am about to tell you.
It started with Kevin the Pirate, starting a small cosmetics company in his kitchen. He is a real pirate, sails up the river and invades the next town of Wareham occasionally with his gang. So over a few ciders he asked “eeeear Charlie what do you cyclist use, what can I make for you?”. I told him about chamois cream, he laughed, took some samples away. The next night he said it’s all crap and full of chemicals… “why would you want all that rubbish on your bum?”. So we set about making a vegetable based alternative.
I took a tub across Iceland several years ago, and here is the clever/not so clever thing: I only took one pair pf cycling shorts. So that is 8 days, Europe’s largest dessert, wading rivers, dust, hurricane, eruption, sweat, dehydrated food, local moonshine…. And one chamois! Bum Butter passed the test, as my bum did not rot away, or grow diseases.
It’s since been used in the Olympics, rowing across the Atlantic, fastest ever London Marathon with a tumble dyer on your back… and daft things like that. Right now at this very moment it is curing: chef’s arse, rambler’s rash, Nordic grind, sun burn, stink foot, and your good old fashioned cycling sores.
So, it’s really very very good at preventing friction, its antiseptic, and anaesthetic, smells great and it’s really bloody ethical: It’s tested on arseholes, not animals. And what’s more… if you subscribe to the world’s best mountainbike magazine (that sometimes pays me to write for them)… it’s also free.
And if that’s not enough information for you our own Scottish correspondent, Sanny, slathered it on his nethers and wrote a comprehensive review. Click below to find out what he thought.
Enough twaddle! Butter me up!
