PostSubject: Monkey Butt redux   Sun 23 Apr 2017, 23:46

seams the old threads are dusted over and abused.

I have found the cure for the rash

i ride an avg of 400 miles a week  i have a ride addiction.

16 mons ago i developed the Monkey Butt [ basicly what Monkey Butt is, is a heat rash on your cheeks]  i tried many theories of how to treat the heat rash, what causes it is sweat and no air allowed to escape, 6 mons ago i tried going with zero undies, and the rash started to fade, it looked like leather and felt like it with an itch on the cheeks, started useing  those bicycle shorts 3 mons ago and the Monkey butt is about gone. the bicycle shorts are the best, 3D ANTI-MICROBIAL PADDED,With 3D thickened protection pad, underwear shorts can alleviate the pressure of your buttocks. The coolmax functional yarn on the surface of the pad can effectively absorb moisture and release sweat.

I haven't got Monkey Butt, in fact I've never suffered from Monkey Butt, as I realised many years ago in my biking days that any discomfort and 'hot spot's to my delicate little butt on long rides were caused by (a) wearing moisture absorbing cotton underwear, and (b) wearing boxers or other underwear that had stitched seams anywhere between my butt cheeks and the seat were the cause of pressure points, hot spots, and general discomfort on long rides.

So I started choosing undershorts in breathable non moisture absorbing synthetic materials that had no seams around the butt area. Problem solved, they're very comfortable, there's no discomfort whatsoever on all day long rides, they can be washed and dried in a few hours in any hotel room. Changing to this style of close fitting seamless shorts means I now hardly if ever use my Airhawk cushion and if I do it's a day one novelty, before it's slung under the seat for the remainder of the tour because I really don't need it.

In fact I'm now such a fan of these synthetic shorts I wear them all the time, I keep a weeks supply in my gym bag, some I wear when cycling, and another load are kept solely for holidays and touring.

I even bought and wore a classy new pair to wear under my formal dinner suit at my step daughter's wedding a few weeks ago.  Smile

I've seen overpriced modified cycle shorts being touted as motorcycle specific underwear with padded seats and hips. If I wanted to go down that road, I'd simply use the synthetic shorts I have and slip in one of the two anatomically shaped foam cycling pads I have between my butt and the shorts. They're non slip on one side, and easily washed and dried. Wearing one is comfortable, the downside is it has a similar effect to wearing a non ventilated back protector, it insulates the covered area and builds up heat as the skin can't breathe.

In a worst case scenario and I do succumb to the dreaded Monkey Butt, I can always break out that big yellow can of Anti Monkey Butt Powder I bought in an Ace Hardware store in Texas earlier this year.
