- Lycra shorts for a 6 day bikepacking trip. Recommendations?
I’ve got the same issue with DHB ones but found that plenty of assos chamois creme sorted out all the chaffing. Looking forward to hear what others think are good.
The newish Enduro ones look handy especially with the different chamois sizes now….why hasn’t someone offered this before?!Posted 6 months agodovebikerMember
Unless going completely unsupported, I’d carry a spare pair and wash a pair each night, wring-out and let dry during the day and certainly some chamois cream with good astringent properties applied liberally each day. Sportful Total Comfort is probably the best seat-pad I’ve tried for all-day use, but prefer something a bit more breathable for warm, summer days.Posted 6 months agokiwicraigSubscriber
I alternated between some Scott lycra shorts and Specialized RBX (both just lycra short, not full bibs) with baggies on top for a 21 day bike packing trip.
6 days you might be ok but I basically wore one pair, washed the other overnight then strapped them to the front of my bike to dry during the day (weather permitting) ready to swap for the the following day.
I’m a big fan of Alpkit stuff in general but their lycra shorts aren’t great. Padding is massive and they make you feel like you’ve crapped yourself. YMMV.Posted 6 months ago
