Chamois cream
« on: 16, June, 2019, 10:51:38 PM »
Hey Guys,


Noticed after long rides I feel a bit sore. Anybody is using any chamois cream? What can you recommend?

1 part turpentine, 2 parts sand and a sprinkling of gravel

Hah. Maybe try new lycra padded shorts. I wear bib shorts under my baggies for the long spins which help  keep everything in place. Also maybe the saddle isn't quite right. I think these things need to be done first before considering  chamois cream.

I always wear bib liners underneath baggies but noticed on a couple of occassions especially on long rides there is a bit if chaffing. The conditions were clammy yesterday and the enduras mt500 while waterproof does not breathe very well. Will keep an eye but maybe on longer rides cream is the way to go for me. Never had issue with  lycra bibs alone as they are more breathable than liner and baggy combo

Yeah I knew yesterday was gonna be a work out so I wore the club XC bib shorts with the club enduro shorts over them which are a lot more breathable and stretchy than the Endura MT500 gear I normally wear. Sure give the cream a go - it won't harm. I have a pot of it at home and I used to use it but don't anymore as I think my clothing has sorted the issue out (or else my ass has gotten harder)

When my current tub of Chamois cream runs out, I intend to make my own all natural version. Saves the environment and my pocket.

Have you tried keeping the tub in your bag instead of your pocket?

Get the Muc-off branded luxury chamois creme - it's better than the Assos minty arse lard (before they destroyed the formula).


I use it for everything up to and including 24 hour events and it works a treat.


In between cycles use witch hazel to toughen up.

I can confirm now that the cream is working quite well. A must have for me on longer spins
