i rode the other day 30 miles in 20-25 degree windy weather. i was alright with frozen toes because i have mesh shoes and no covers and expect that discomfort, but what really bothered me was the frozen unit. what do you guys use under your tights to keep your junk bundled and warm?


some think foil or baggies over the toes work, perhaps you could give that a try?

just wear windproof tights and your johnson should be fine. If you can't afford that then stuff a sock down your pants--the chicks will be in awe. :)

I shove these down my bibs whenever it's turning nippy and I must say they really make a difference, combined with a swig of scotch it's just perfect.

used to happen all the time

when I was an XC ski racer. hurt unbelievable during the thaw-out. buy some briefs with the wind pane in front. solves the problem

Tiger balm. http://www.tigerbalm.com/

Personally I stay off the bike when it is that cold, though I commuted 3 miles in the past in -20F and never had that problem. Still, in theory, Tiger Balm should work.

When I was in high school some guys pulled a prank on this one other guy that involved Red Hot brand embrocation and his jock. Let's just say that I've never seen anyone scream louder. And taking a shower only made it worse. Poor guy.

Yeah and it's deep too.


Normally tuck left...on cold commute have definitely learned to tuck down so that the chamois gives me better protection.

Did a google search...got this result, not sure if it will be of much help though. :D

failing fancy briefs or windproof tights, newspaper works great. or plastic. small convenience store bags and grocery bags. good luck with your frozen unit. etc.

When I run into cold weather I stop by a fedex drop box and grab one of those Tyvek packs and slide it up under my jersey. Should work in other areas too.

Good Marketing!

Some other guy does a post asking for gearing help at the same time and gets nothing! So far, the number of views are 115 vs. 0.
Hey...preventing frozen peckers is an important thing. Dude can figure out gearing himself.

Started working out and was using a leg machine so I had really sore inner thighs (adduction machine). Anyway, don't ever, ever put icy hot on your inner thighs without first wearing underwear. At first thought it was funny till the heat continued to build. Had to keep movig until it subsided, about 1/2 an hour.

This is slightly radical, but have you considered a sex change?
