I seem to be putting holes in about all my bike shorts. Left side at the top of my hamstring right near where the pad attaches.

The first time this happened, i thought it had something to do with the saddlebag i use. i pretty much stopped using it. The holes keep coming. Some on shorts that aren't very old either. Just last week, i found a hole in the same spot but on the right side too. WTF?!?!?

Anybody else have this issue? My other thought was the saddle, but i ride different bikes and they have different saddles too.

I know we're only 6 posts in, but the replies thus far (OEH notwithstanding) aren't really getting the job done.

I'll check back when it hits Page 2.

In the meantime, you might need to put some Boogie in it.

I think you have a bad pore on your leg and it's eating up your shorts. My old roommate had a bad pore on his forehead and couldn't wear the same hat more than 5 or 6 times because the toxins from the pore would eat right through the hat. He was a Dodgers fan and had to buy a new cap almost every time we went to the stadium for a game.

Stupid Chelski. And damn the penalty shoot out.

Oh well.

//Maybe the OP needs to stop being so intimate with his saddle. HTH.

I thought you were going to say that your butt is defective because it has a crack in it.....oh well.
But is it a manufacturing defect or normal wear and tear? I think he should file a warranty claim.

I think the phrase for it goes something like this: "Good God, my butt's giving me problems."

Stop riding sidesaddle.
A dingo ate my shorts.
Stop using those all plastic BMX saddles.
Try to wash your shorts at least once a week.
Moths?
Put vasoline on the "outside" of your bibs.
