- Unexpected saddle sores
Same saddle (Charge spoon) and shorts combo that i’ve done hundreds/thousands of miles on (inc a few century rides) with no problem and on a few different bikes (road and mtb) – but put on a new bike and 32mile ride last night and saddle sores.
What’s to blame? Slight different position as different frame/bike meaning chaffing in different place? That would make sense if i only ever ran that saddle/shorts on one bike, but all bikes have the same saddle.
Or just the heat yesterday?Posted 7 months agoc_klein87Member
I’ve had similar problems this year, never been an issue to me previously, multiple bikes and saddles but this year i seem very susceptible to them. In you case checking the bike fit is the same across all bikes is a good place to start, but with anything each saddle won’t be exactly the same, worth sanity checking the rails aren’t bent etcPosted 7 months agoDezBSubscriber
Same here – same saddle for a year of commuting, then much pain. I’m pretty damn sure it’s the heat. Never had it like this in decades of riding!
Chamois cream not solved it for me, in fact, I think it made it worse because the heat can’t escape so well.
Athlete’s foot powder is working better and changing shorts immediately after rides/staying clean.Posted 7 months ago
