Do we all rash eventually ?

Postby Mr_Ribble » Thu Nov 14, 2013 15:51 pm

Is it inevitable that no matter how careful we are and how much vaseline or ANTI-CHAFTM we use, we all inevitably end up with a rash? Is there anyone on this forum who has been riding a good amount of time who hasn’t rashed?

In 20 odd years of riding "rash" hasn't been a problem. Never used vaseline, chamois cream or anything else Sweat burns from two cheap rubbish saddles yes rash no

Do you wax your crack? If not, ride further.

It happens to us all eventually, it’s just a matter of when

I only started having to do this when I began riding in wearing those tight denim shorts that GB lent me....

Worth it though. You pull them off so well!
Why? Because I'm guaranteed a seat all the way in.

I'm sorry - am I reading this right? Mr Ribble pulled your tight denim shorts off you? :shock:

Pretty much. I told him they'd make him cycle faster. (Even as fast as me.) Never saw them again. Clearly they're getting good use...

If you lot are getting a nasty little rash you've been sticking it somewhere you shouldn't have :P

Ah, I remember this! Banter. I thought this had been expunged from this forum as it didn't generate income!
