I saw that you can get a tub of classic. Noxzema for £3-48 and its water based easily rinsed out of chamois pads. I'm curious if anybody has tried it and did it cause any damage in particular to Assos bibs or chamois ?

  • Isn't Noxzema a anti-spot cream? Or am I thinking of something else?
  • No not anti-spot cream , take a look here http://www.multipharmacy.com/shop/customer/Noxzema-Original-Deep-Cleansing-Cream-2oz-pid-11783.html?gclid=CK2L0onvg8ECFST3wgodzokAkg , it appears to be a skin cleaner with soothing properties. Ive read about cyclists using it for chamois pad use and am curious to find out if it would damage my S5 chamois pad or not.

    You've paid a lot of money for the Assos shorts, so stop being a cheapskate and buy a tub of Assos Chamois Cream. It really doesn't cost that much, I use some every ride and the pot has lasted over two years so it doesn't work out expensive at all.

    :shock: How much do you use to make a tub last that long??

    Wrong as usual!

    As for making it last, I just use a small amount on the places where rubbing can occur. No need to slather it all over.

    the last 4 weeks have seen me travelling for work and visiting the UK. I see you conveniently ignored the year to date stats and elevation gain.

    The point is, the Chamois cream last ages so I say again, stop being such a cheapskate and bite the bullet.

    PS, you should have bought the S7 bibs, they are much better.
  • I must be lucky. I ride 250km a week and have never had chafe. I have also never used any cream or anything. Perhaps I am just naturally lubricated.

    New Assos S7 on today. At least I think I was wearing them. Cant recall wearing anything at all. I guess I might need to buy another pair.

    I think a lot depends on body shape and saddle. No need to use cream if you don't experience any chafing!

    Hey if you ask your mum nicely then Santa might bring you a set of Assos and you can ditch your Aldi bibs. :D
