We need to talk about my nipples

So I bought some bib shorts.....

Nice - comfy - in no way was I attracted to the "girdle" effect that they may or may not confer on the wearer.

But I digress.

Jaysus H Christ - an hour into my ride my nips are rubbing red raw against the chest straps and resemble a pair of seals nose's after a full on ball balancing act with sandpaper covered acid dripping balls.

My balls however were fine, thanks for thinking about it.

censored me it's agony.

I knew nipple rub full well from my days as a slow runner but didn't think I'd need to get vas'ed up on the bike on my Scammel wheel nuts.

Am I the only one or is it just my state of permanent arousal that is causing the problem?

    :shock:

    great support these bib shorts, just dont buy any Astana shorts.......makes you a target for any roadie within a 5 mile radius

    If you have properly fitting bibs, your position on the bike should mean that unintentional nipple rubbing is kept to a minimum...

    No problems here and have been wearing them for three years. Your bib shorts too tight?

    It must be my massive pecs that cause the problem.

    Who would have thought that my taut sculpted body would have caused such issues.

    Moobs - funny - nothing better than watching a good friend fall off a small ladder.

    You could always cross the shoulder straps over - right strap over left shoulder, you get the idea......you would look incredibly camp though.

    Assos do some lovely bibs with a Y up the front which would let your JCB's be free, just not sure they come in XXXL.

    The size of the wrapper needs to be bigger than the package.

    Just in case that is too oblique for you.

    I need big pants to contain my massive tackle - geddit?

    The largest size Assos do (after XXL) is TIR.

    You obviously spend a lot of time hanging around truck stops late at night.

    I only get this problem on 100 mile plus rides where the weather is alterating between hot and cold

    Put sticking plaster over your nips or wear a base layer

    They don't share their Yorkies with blokes wearing "Save the Prostitutes" sandwich boards.

    yeah, you see THIS only works for those shaven types who wax their chests... I've got hairs bleeding everywhere on mine.

    Were I to attach sticking plaster to my nips I would be screaming like a stuck pig when it came time to get them off. :shock:

    Ouchie! And messy. I've not had this problem and I hope not to have it, but I will vaseline up mine when I do the relay race and report back.

    I like my nipples aggitated.... :oops:

    In any case, try putting vaseline on em...

    The ladies have had a solution to this for a long time, I'm surprised they are keeping it to themselves! You need to get yourself some sports protection:
