Climbing shorts. Belt and clasp. Zippered Fly. Lotsa pockets. And most importantly 4 directional stretchage. FTW.

Who would have thought?

No padding in the appropriate places though.
Brooks B17 on all of my bikes, except the MTB which needs the upgrade... and the Bamboo Bike which has the B17 w/ springs.

I can ride 50ish miles w/out a chamois.. at least when i wasnt a fatass..

I think I'd snag 'em on my saddle, and I'd crash and die.

Folks, the chamois on your nnc shorts is for moisture transfer, not a comfortable pad... though you wouldn't know it if you bought PI, or even some assos shorts. Don't know what gives with that.

At what point do you not wear a chamois?

Oh. I just wear padded liners or lycra shorts and pull whatever casual shorts I own over them.
My casual short collection has dwindled due to wearing primarily jeans for a couple years.

Orly? Since when? Back in the day of wool shorts and real chamois, it was for friction reduction. I guarandamntee you there was no moisture xfer thru that leather.

I do agree it's mostly padding these days... getting hard to find a thin liner anymore.

Friction, yeah, keeping the clammy wetness off of your junk (totally kode?) with the high-tech stuff these days, but, I have no desire to wear my saddle!

Ok, so at what length ride do you install a chamois onto your taint?
