Hi,

I do long and intense rides 6 times a week, if I don't use chamois cream for the ride, my bottoms get sore like hell. Usually I use Assos cream and it works great, I have tried Nallini cream and few more.

As a bike and gear lover, I roam the net and read a bout new products, I never new that there so many chamois cream out in the market (I'm from Israel, we have all from all here, chamois creams not so much). What kind of cream do you people use?

Thank's in advance

Roy

I use the Assos cream on most of my rides, except when it's (very) cold outside because of the cooling effect. Haven't used anything else just yet but very satisfied with this product!

I used assos chamois for 4 years. I must have overused it because I've in the meantime become allergic to it.

Now I use a basic emulsyfying oitment which works wonders. I feel absolutely no friction whatsover, its hypoallergic with ZERO side affects plus it moisturizes.

Last but not least its x10 cheaper then assos! Check it out:

Thank you! I will try this one. The only problem that i'm having with the Assos is the price, I send a lot of money that I can use for bike upgrades (:

Do you have long term experience with it? Do you race with it or ride 3-4 hour rides with it? I once tried alternative solutions to various chamois creams and only ended up with some saddle sores after a time because apprantly the pores got clogged up - or there was a lack of antibacterial ingredients - or both. Then again, I did not try the one you linked specifically. I have been cautious ever since though.

Currently I use Chamois Buttr. Its totally fine for me in any conditions or duration of ride. It comes in a larger bin than Assos and is better priced on top of that, so its much more economical. I also find I can use a little less of it as it takes more Assos to cover the same chamois due to Assos' slightly thicker consistency. While I've yet to find anything as good as Assos, Chamois Buttr hasn't ever let me down and is quite a bit cheaper in the long run, although definitely not as cheap as the link above. ;)

Yes, I've used it for about a year now and do long rides with no discomfort what so ever. I realize the oitment has no anti-bacterial ingredients but strangely enough Ive been saddle sore free all this time. At 2£ for 0.5kg its the best cycling investment you can do.

It's great stuff, and the tea tree oil in it makes it anti-bacterial. FWIW, it also works nicely if you are already nursing sores.

For the heck of it, I have used just about everything in the market. Finally settled for the purple container of Chamois Butt'r by Paceline. It is thick and soft enough, last long enough, easy to find enough, cheap enough, and works just as good as all others!

I used to use Bag Balm but stopped using anything two years ago and I have had no issues. I'm not sure why I stopped but even 6 or 7 hours in the saddle is okay.

Queen Helene's cocoa butter (Wal mart) with a little bit of tea-tree oil and Witch Hazel mixed in.
(sort of like DZnuts, but I am really cheap so I mix it myself.)

Been using the Euro Style Chamois Buttr for years now and stick with it all the time.

bag balm only when i've got an iffy spot, then only until it passes. it's good stuff. i've also used it over the top of embrocation during nasty cross races.
