- Chamois Cream – what's that all about then?
i find over 75 miles me bum cheeks develop hot spots on the saddle contact points du to the chammy sticking to the skin, cream alleviates this and enables much longer distances as you are more bothered by tired legs than how ripped your flabby bits are gonna be when you finishPosted 4 years agorootes1Member
i used to use it. but now do not now found a saddle that suits.
I find that can do several days at 80-100miles a day without.. though if on a tour the antibac helps..
just been to germany for a 4 day trip, took two pairs of shorts, my mate only one..now he has a UTI..
Sudocreme is good at the end of the day, but not in use, not slippy enough..Posted 4 years agoAndrewJMember
would Sudocream suffice ?
Apparently sudocream isn’t so good. After a Gorrick it had turned to glue. Made me smart it did. Had a very smooth bum afterwards!
I’ve done 12 and 24 hour solo events and have only ever used Sudocrem. Great stuff and a fraction of the price of the cycling specific creams. It has the added benefit of being antiseptic too!Posted 4 years agotrail_ratMember
the guys i rode with all swore by it ……
i used it a few times ….. always ended up in more of a mess than if i hadnt used it …
they all used cheap shorts though
soon as i changed to decent shorts i never had to use it. Including 6 months on tour , 24 hour races , back to back 300km days
mudguards or Waterproof shorts for wet days make a big differencePosted 4 years ago
