Boney Butt

Well folks, I've lost enough weight that I have no natural padding. A long day of riding leaves me sore. I'm thinking about bicycling shorts (padded) to alleviate the pain. Anyone done this? Are there any recommendations. The sheepskin isn't enough by its self. Thanks.

Air Hawk, butt the odd floating feeling upsets some folks. Custom seats at enormous cost can help too.

KLIM tactical riding shorts have some gel type material built in. And some hip and upper leg protection as well as teeny bit of tailbone protection. Not cheap being KLIM but nicely made.

I tried different things but the real improvement was when I went to a custom seat and you don't have to spend $500 or more to get one that works.

Could not find KLIM shorts on their site but, found some baleaf padded shorts for $10 on Amazon. Cheap enough to try.

I've tried bicycle shorts before and didn't find them effective.

Their padding is more between the legs for protection against the very narrow front part of the bicycle seat. I found that the padding just bunched up between my legs and was quite uncomfortable, and the bony part of my butt remained unpadded.

Moto-Skiveez and a good seat(Sargent w/Alaskan sheepskin for me).
Home - Moto-Skiveez Tried others with less success. I also use there compression socks and no leg cramps anymore.

Moto Skiveez. I liked my first pair so much I bought another: Home - Moto-Skiveez

Better than bicycle shorts.

Anything with seams or padding causes sore spots after several hours in the saddle for me. While I have and occasionally use the LD Comfort underwear, it is expensive, rough against my skin, hot. My favorite are these AERO TECH. These are compression fit single layer. No seams where they matter, no padding or extra layers. Plus they look like shorts so I can take my riding pants off and not look too obnoxious!
