Before adding a second pair of shorts, have you considered chomois cream? I tend to try and find the right combination of saddle and shorts. What’s your saddle like? I’m not a fan of big bits of “squish” in between me and the bike. I personally like castelli kiss 3 inserts and wiggle dhb shorts.
The other thing to consider is whether your weight will well distributed between your butt and your hands. Also, cadence can have an effect. I’m okay up to 110 rpm, but after that, I can start to feel a little tender.
I’m looking for a comfortable bib, I have loads of bibs from gore, assos, northwave, spackt, DHB, non branded, the most expensive sets cost around £80, they are all fine except on long distance 80 – 100 mile rides
I have a LEJOG in 3 weeks so I’m looking for something a little better, happy to spend around £150 – £200 a set
Or should I just put 2 chamois in ? ( As some mates plan to do )
The arse is the only place I get discomfort, no chaffing just that bruised feeling
I realise this is a personal preference issue but is their a generally accepted more comfortable chamois ? Should it just be thicker for distance ? Gel ?
