    Boots zinc and castor oil cream.
    Then Body Sports chamois cream.
    Grade 3 sandpaper. :lol:

    you could always use teh traditional Galswegian cure for almost anything, wire brush and detol, does the trick everytime, you will never worry about saddle sores again! :shock:

    I rememeber seeing Sean Kellly one time getting very sulkily indignant when a TV journalist asked him, was it true that he solved his saddle sore problems of yesterday by riding today with a chateaubriand steak down his shorts at the appropriate place.

    Maybe the journalist had spilled the beans?

    Peas with Chateaubriand, not beans.
