    I use Paceline Chamois Butt'r, but mostly because it's what the closest shop carries, and is easily available. It usually holds up for a 2.5-3 hr ride, but not much longer. I know a guy who uses diaper cream... says it lasts longer.

    Longer rides I do. I like dznuts. Has a nice cooling effect and seems to last long enough.

    I bought a tube of Chamois Butt'r when I got myself into mtb'ing 3 years ago. I found that it wasn't really necessary for my purpose on the mtb so aside from the absolute longest efforts, I didn't bother with it. Within the last month, I picked up another bike habit of road riding and I am now using the Butt'r due to seat time. I wasn't having issues but the static position on a road bike versus the dynamic positioning on a mtb, it just seemed smart. The other thing I have ALWAYS done is launder my liners/bib shorts after every ride to eliminate the chance of any irritation that may occur.

    My biggest complaint about Chamois Butt'r is it's so damned expensive!!! I think the tube cost me $20 and the tub is around $40 if I recall. It's been 3 years since I got it so I don't know if Chamois futures have corrected since.

    Never used cream until late April, roadie holiday, 5-8hrs in the saddle everyday, after the second day l started using the cream, on the third day l was puttinga bloody good coating on, the fourth day l was putting on with a spatula, the fifth day was good.......l had no more feeling

    came home after that and was 2 weeks off any sort of bike, lm slowly coming back

    I have, though when I'm wearing good shorts that fit me right, I don't find I need to.

    On a tip, I used diaper rash ointment.

    That's key...but when planning on spending 7-8 hours on a bike traveling upwards of 100 miles...any little bit of insurance is worth it...especially in that area of the body.

    Not usually, but I do when I go on a riding vacation and spend repeated long days on the bike. Another vote for dznuts.

    I like dznuts, too. Sometimes I forget to grab it before a long day in the saddle. This past Sunday was one of those days. Got a couple minor saddle sores.

    For short, 2-3hr rides, it doesn't matter to me. But when I ramp up the saddle time, it becomes a lot more important.

    Diaper cream for mountain rides over two hours. I don't use anything when road riding as I don't move around on the saddle nearly as much and don't get irritation.

    Rides longer than an hour or so, or if I'm just in the saddle a lot throughout the week. Maybe not so much in cooler weather, but if it's hot absolutely! Skip the expensive ones, diaper cream works very well and I've got a lifetime supply left after getting through three kids! I have been using bodyglide over the past year and am finding it actually works very well, lasting much longer than a lot of creams etc.

    Biggest advice is if you're feeling chafed at all down there, get something on sooner than later! It really cuts into your saddle time if you let it go too far and have to heal things up!

    I never use a Chamois so no I don't use the cream. I put the energy into finding saddles that work with my body so I don't need to protect the under carriage in any special way.
    Safe riding,

    I have only tried Dznuts. Had to try it for the name alone.
