I'm interested in finding some alternatives to Elite Ozone products. I want a medium strength warming cream for before I ride.. and/or a post ride warming cream to ease muscle soreness. Bengay doesn't work well and it smells too much. I've tried many of the muscle rubs in the local stores but nothing works like I want it..

Those prices are a little steep IMO..

Anyone have some suggestions for something I could try?

Thanks!!!:thumbsup:

You can get Tiger Balm in an oil it costs about $8 a bottle and shold last a long time. Works great before or after a ride.

Muscle Rub works for me.
Got it at Rite Aid
Contains Camphor and Menthol, but the 30% Methyl Salicylate seems to work well for achy muscles during and after a ride. Nice in colder weather. Works for mild tendinitis used under an Ace Wrap.
Smells like mint, and doesn't go well with 'private' parts.

Anyone ever use atomic balm? I used to know people that would use that stuff.

I really want to find something that doesn't stink..
