    I bought these same shorts. I really like the shorts but the gooch pad is a little too much for me. The pad that came in my fox shorts is just about perfect.

    I see, those should be nice for the moola. That's why I went with those shorts was cost and with extra removable pad.
    I was going to just go with cheap padded undies, but decided to try biking without walmart russel specials for a change. :anonymous:

    They are expensive but I seem to have a sensitive taint. They say more saddle time and it gets better which is easier said than done nowadays.

    Osprey Raptor 10 when I am solo or during races. Shorter rides I'll have a hip pack like @jjones.yota said.

    What saddle are you running? You shouldn't be having taint pain.

    Its the factory WTB seat that came on my Pivot trail. I would say its more discomfort than pain.

    Others may be able to provide better advice (I've got an Iron Grundle) but I've heard great things about the Ergon Pro.

    I have too. I am a personal fan of Fabric Scoop Radius saddles. Jives with me.

    Everyone is built a little different, but WTB saddles slay me, doesn't matter which one.

    So I think saddle issues on the trainer are different from regular. I went through a whole process last year finding a saddle on my road bike that I also used on the trainer. Had an old bintrager, switched to bontrager montrose which was worse, ends up with Ergon SR comp. i thought I was good to go until this year when I started trainer rides and the discomfort is back. No numbness just plain discomfort. Part of it is Sitting in the same position for so long.

    my new road/gravel bike has a WTB volt which feels like the most comfortable thing. I haven’t been able to find one online or I’d try it on my trainer bike too.

    Oh well. You could probably cobble something similar together using your parts bin and the contents of that bottom drawer of your night stand.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I’m sure there is a dropper post out there that could accomplish a similar effect
