“After years of a pretty sedentary lifestyle, I started getting into biking this past April. Since May I have purchased 2 bikes and I am riding several times per week. The two most important things for my comfort are a good pair of cycling shorts / bibs with a high quality chamois (see my other reviews for recommendations) and chamois cream. The Chamois Butt’r Cream is my favorite. It is affordable, non-greasy, non staining and odorless. But most importantly, IT WORKS!! My longest ride to date was 100 miles but with good cycling shorts and Chamois Butt’r cream, I did not have any chaffing or skin / friction problems even on an all day ride.
To paraphrase the Old AmEx commercial, “Don’t leave home on your bike without it.”
