:beer: 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.

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.

HEY hey hey Stevarino...

At least I put on some FRESH ones this morning - and did not soil myself during today's 450 mile ride around Southern AZ in 77F weather.

Yup, I am rubbing it in. ;) Ewwwwwwwwwwww.........

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" :D
I wonder if GEICO insures them?

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.

(Personally, I use Pro-Player seemless boxers - Available at Penny's)

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.

Someone on this site suggested 'ProPlayer'? underwear from JC Penny - about $15.00. Try them.

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.
