    I think you (most riders), esp where it gets hot, can benefit from the ditching the pad. Maybe it makes sense to revisit the saddle then. I also don't like how baggies can hang up, though I still wear them. The Dirt Craft shorts are the best fit I've used for moving around the saddle. Not available without the damn pad. :bang:

    I read that a MTBer rode a 28,000' ascent ride without a pad.

    Unsure if it's a trend; I've always seen the pad as a sometimes-necessary evil. But I'm on a roll of long rides without it, and I'll see what, if anything, becomes an issue going forward. I could probably not use one again and be fine from this point. I'll admit I do like the insulation when it's cold.

    There's a bunch of models in there. Which one is working for you?

    I gotta try some boxers. I don't think I notice the hem on briefs, but do I?...

    Quest... But looking at them the seam seems to be in t ithe wrong place for riding... I don't use them for riding .. apologies for confusion

    Kinetic might be a better choice but dang expensive

    I also just like plan ole under armour compression / heat gear, I have ridden in those

    Last night for 4 hours I wore a very old pair of Tinley bike shorts (bought from thrift store 15 years ago) and cargo shorts outside of them. My "area" is sore. I'm thinking maybe a wax will reduce some friction of moving parts and help immensely.

    Judging from what I saw back there, you should just wear a thong and put some velcro on the seat.
    Freeballing!
    And I still have a blue dot in my retinas where I tried to burn out the image...

    Great discussion topic

    Winning combo on daily rides regardless of length
    SDG Ti Fly
    Zoic shorts with no liner

    However, over the years I have taken prolonged breaks from riding for various reasons and the first ride back is always painful on the lungs, the legs and the ass.

    Losing combo on bikepacking trips
    SDG Bel Air
    Zoic shorts with liner
    Chamois buttr

    By day 3 of all day riding, the saddle sores and butt bone pain makes riding truly unenjoyable. During the long rides, all I can focus on are the numerous ways in which SDG has failed me and how I will never bikepack again.

    Hah! Not sure if a saddle from Speed Defies Gravity is indicated for bikepacking... :p:geek: I have one that sits proudly in my parts bin. I can't imagine it will ever be toppled as The Least Comfortable Saddle I've Ever Owned. I fear the day I end up having to use it. But it looks really cool. :gotnothing:
