    Thats not true even you are e-bike curious now because of this thread.:rofl:

    I respect everyone's opinion or interpretation.

    Is your ass just getting sore or are you getting man diaper rash?

    That’s absolute horseshit. Similar stuff happening here (wife is a teacher). When’s the last time a teacher had to go on unpaid leave with the flu for choosing not to get a vaccine?

    sore. it's not a rash. it's chafing/raw skin after riding longer times. after too long I simply cannot stand to sit on the saddle. it's what kept me from riding more than 4 miles the 3rd day in knoxville.

    Came from an SDG Bel Air 2 which couldn't have fit better to the WTB Race Vigo on my new bike and my ass hates it. Chamois Butt'r has been the answer for me.

    I know you don't, but the best of the best is all that's been recommended to me before. I didn't want to drop that kind of money on something that "might" fix my issue. is 100$ a lot in the grand scheme of things? no.

    but why spend 100$ to maybe no be successful when I can spend 40$ for the same possible outcomes? I think 40$ for a properly sized (15cm) saddle, is the place to start and see if that makes a difference. then I could consider going for a nicer version one day of a properly sized saddle.

    Haha, they do make some specialized lubes for that!

    Taintenance is very important if you are going to have several days in the saddle back to back. I'd look to those masochists who are riding the Colorado Trail for tips on saddle sores.

    Just to be sure you are not riding in cotton whitie tighties?

    Dude when I get chaffed down there I'd rub anything on it to make it feel better. I think the "her" version will keep you from getting a yeast infection.:D

    I agree with all the comments that this is a truck/bike thread and really don't want to carry this discussion on here, but had to correct two things...

    First of all, the flu and COVID comparison is not relevant and missing some important differences between these infections. COVID is killing people at >10x the rate of the flu. Second, to those that don't wanna get vaccinated, it's not just about protecting yourself it's about protecting the whole community. Even if your risk of a severe infection is low, you're still a potential carrier of the virus and putting other (less healthy individuals) around you at risk. Please please at least go learn some more about this stuff from a good source, preferably an actual medical professional.

    My comment wasn't comparing any level of severity, and I'm pretty well informed/educated on the topic. But thanks for the 'correction.'
    So you're completely OK with individuals being punished for making a personal choice?

    Did we really make it this far without discussing the vax topic? Is it really worth bringing it up? Nobody is going to change their mind here

    A yeast infection is less irritating than the direction this thread is heading.......

    No no no, I don't want to perpetuate a topic. But let me at least tell you you're wrong first.

    One thing you may not have considered, that makes a big different for me at least, is "time in saddle.” You can build up taint durability, it just takes riding consistently.
