RE: [RC] Question for men - Dolores Arste

"Does it really matter that much to you what total strangers
in a gas station think?"
Well, that's one thing I don't have to worry about with my new rider
husband. He's an ultra marathoner now. Have you seen what these guys wear?
He's not into stylish <VBG> you ought to see him barely able to walk to the
gas pump after a race in his spandex with windproof shorts on top usually
not color coordinated. But, very likely brand (Asics not Nike)

We just need to solve the slippery leather saddle against slippery spandex.
Sounds like
a) jeans work ok for short rides
b) try a saddle cover (sheepskin?)
c) half chaps and knee pads are just as good as full seat pants.
d) maybe cotton as its less slippery
