    Do thick pads in shorts hurt your B-hole?

    Not sure if its the shorts, saddle or just part of getting old, but in the last few years my B-hole has been bothering me. Last night I rode 22miles in an old pair of knickers that have a thinner pad than my fancy PI elites and my anus is much less irritated.


    Anyone else have a similar issue? I know Tinker Jaurez wears Pad-less shorts, I wonder if its for a similar reason.

    Could be a bunch in the padding is causing a hair pulling repetitive motion injury.
