Wedgie free riding drawers.

I noticed today I start with the wedgies about 1 hour into a ride even though I don't move around all that much. I used to wear briefs as a young man but now I started wearing those Hanes Comfortsoft Boxer Brief.
Anyone else having the same dilemna? Any good solutions?
THanks for your help.

Talking Suggestion

COMMANDO !!!!!!


Just kidding..

I think some folks wear the spandex biker shorts, some have butt pads in them and are supposed to be pretty comfortable on the long ride..

Someone in the know will chime in pretty soon.

Just couldn't let that one go...

As a professional in the butt comfort biz, I've spent a LOT of time researching this. The answer is Under Armour BRIEFS:

www.underarmour.com

Blow off the cheap stuff from Wally World and all the "motorcycle specific" stuff that is overpriced, overhyped and made from junky fabric.

Pricey - butt you get what you pay for. As a matter of fact I am wearing them right now, butt that is probably more information than you really wanted to know.

You can find the bike shorts without the crotch pad -- the LT's seat is much more comfortable than a bicycle seat. I found that Calvin Klein makes a boxer brief that doesn't seem to stretch out, doesn't ride up, and it has no seams for you to sit upon. That has worked very well for me.

Try these on for size!

I heartily endorse these LD Comfort riding shorts. I prefer them over the Calvin Kleins. The beauty of these shorts is that they have a "kangaroo type pouch" so you can easily locate your "best buddy" when you need to....check them out www.ldcomfort.com/

I was thinking the same thing. I'd have to wear a pair of underwear under these underwear to "protect my investment"

I've used the LD's for several years - before the "amour" stuff was available - and I think the are great. The also have some exposed rubber texturing on the inside of the legs at the bottom so the stay in place real well.

I've purchased the LD riding shortrs and the Under Amour and would not hesitate to go with the UA's. I thought I was getting something superior with the $35.00 price on the LD's but all I get is a loss of circulation in my legs cause the elastic bands are so friggin tight. Save some cash ag go with the under amour.

Ex Officio

Check out the offerings from Ex Officio, a well-known clothing manufacturer in hiking community.

I originally thought that $25 was a bit excessive for underwear (though in the context of this discussion, it looks like a bargain), but after trying a pair, I was hooked. Like most synthetic undergarments, they control moisture, wick, breath, etc. But these have the added benefit of an antimicrobial agent that retards the build-up of odor causing bacteria.

The manufacture suggests taking two pair on a trip. Each night, rinse and hang-dry the pair you wore that day. The next morning pack that pair (they dry in an hour or so) and put on the other. The manufacturer says you can go about two weeks with this routine before needing to wash them with soap. That's a lot of saved space in the saddlebag.

The link below is for boxer-briefs, but they also sell boxers and briefs (and t-shirts) made from the same materials.

I know I should not add to this post for obvious reasons, BUTT...In a seminar of Long Distance Riders our very own Don Arthur made a comment (as a guest speaker) about shorts for LD riding. He said the first thing you should do before wearing LD Comfort riding shorts is to cut the elastic on both legs. It turns out that this could cause DVT Deep Vein Thrombosis which could result in a lot more than a little discomfort. Needless to say the elastic cuts off your blood flow.

Just thought you should know.

I still vote that Joe Namath answer to the problem: Panty Hose! Seriously guys the total support has many benefits for men as well. I have know several snow ski racers that wear them as well.

I too endorse the ldcomfort shorts. Purchased a pair earlier this year for a Ironbutt ride and my butt was just fine afterwards. They are expensive but worth every penny.

I use these: http://www.rei.com/product/47695209.htm.

I always carry a few pair on a LD trip. They can double as swim trunks and will quickly dry when tied to the top of your bike. Or you can rinse then in the sink in a hotel in the evening and they'll be dry in the morning. No seams. Works just great.

I'm kind of afraid to ask, but I must:

Otherwise stay away from cotton. Polypropylene is an excellent choice and there are multiple manufacturers using it. I have used it for riding, backpacking or anytime chafing could be an issue on hot humid days.

Go with the LD Comfort shorts. Order the correct size (not the size you wish you were, or were at one time) and there is no need to cut the elastic.

As stated, the fly mechanism is very user friendly ( I don't believe the UA even have a fly, makes pit stops a little awkward). Also as stated, when one gets to the motel at night, just take a shower with them on (soap 'em up), switch to a 2nd pair for the next day and get a Helen two wheels dry bag to let the damp pair dry off.

Yes they are expensive...goes with all the other expensive accessories and clothes one has for riding their $20K+ bike.

You can't be serious man! Unless you have thighs and legs like a sparrow, the LD shorts are gonna squeeze the life out of your legs. And thanks for the shopping advice. Guess I'll give up trying to squueez into that medium I wore in Jr. High.

"Unless you have thighs and legs like a sparrow"

Hey there Todd - be careful - I'm a very sensitive guy. My wife calls my legs "birdwheels".

Seriously though, if you've got elastic bands anywhere that are putting an undue amount of pressure on your legs you COULD be at risk for DVT - deep vein thrombosis - which COULD cause you to throw a clot. A lot of Orthopedic Surgeons have noticed patients dying after tourniquets have been released after routine knee arthroscopies - which is considered low risk surgery. The tourniquets are placed in the exact same position on your leg as the elastic bands you are complaining about. I would toss those shorts in the trash. As crazy as it sounds, they COULD kill you.

DVT is especially aggravated by sitting in one position for a long time as well as having other risk factors like obesity, smoking, yadda yadda yadda...

I'm not a Doctor but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night.

As Coni pointed out a few posts back, the Surgeon General of the Navy would tend to disagree with you about the elastic.

I hear you Ron about the DVT. After my first day of riding with my LD's, I cut the elastic off the legs and now they are much better. I still prefer the UA's as I don't have any modifications to make and the price is right

Cool Anti-Wedgie and also Anti-Apebutt

I bought some "Wickers" brand after I read an article called "Combat Motorcycle Touring" in MCN and used them on a recent cross country trip and had no crack cramming or monkey butt. Wore them either directly under my Aerostitch or under regular jeans. You can buy shirts to go with them in a couple of different weights.

Ron, It's like you said. You get what you pay for. I tested them ALL. I know the difference, as do many other riders.

I have UA's boxers, Nike Pro shorts, BCG shorts, Hanes.

My favorite for comfort is UA's, theese are different than exercise shorts, looser fit also has an opening for acess. Nike pro is my second choice for comfort.
The least expensive is Hanes stretch.

Cool Max gear

I would also look at the Cool Max gear at Road Runners Sports which is much cheaper than Under Armour. Go to the web site here:

http://www.roadrunnersports.com/cgi-...rs/rrHome.jsp#

then, go to pages 18-19 in the online catalog.

I ride a road bike everyday and had considered riding my K1200 with the padded riding shorts but the Cool Max is more comfortable because it doesn't have the padding.

I ride mostly in southern Texas.

Under Armour is the way to go

I rode to the US GP this summer from Detroit. Most of the ride was 90 to 105 degrees, the Under Armour breathes so you aren't sitting in your own sweat and you can wash them out in a hotel sink - they will air dry in only a few hours. So I had fresh skivvies every morning. I also wore an Under Armour t shirt under my jacket for the same reason.

Hey Dave... looks like you were in Death Valley in your picture. If you rode to the GP like I did from Vegas you were REALLY sweating... especially if you rode through DV... I'm going to buy what you're wearing.

Must be just getting old I guess but I had the same issue a year or so back. I tried a bunch ... even the UA. The UA are OK but I find they so not stay put .... they crotch seems to slip down. Tried a few sizes in a few styles. An expensive way to find they do not work as hoped. I may try some of the loose fit boxers though. But the BEST I have found are the MSR Skins. Got the tip to try the MSR's from a buddy who races moto-cross. They work great and provide all day comfort.

Thanks Ron. I've been searching for a solution myself and just order some of the Underarmour microfiber briefs. Hoping they are as comfy as you suggest.

So long as they are NOT cotton. Cotton is not fun when it gets wet and sweaty. But whatever works for you ..... you need to stick with.

Since this thread has re-surfaced I'd just like to put another plug in for "Pro Player" underware sold at J.C. Penny. Costs $15.00 a pair but can be found on-sale for less. I bought 4 pair when the were 20% off last month. A big improvement in my riding comfort.

regards

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I spent my money on a KonTour seat so I can wear cheap cotton Paw Paw drawers. With the air flow through the seat I don't even have to stand up to fart.

I thought that was a major selling point of the KonTour seat, listed right there on their website. Or was that just a conversation with Ron?
