    Me too! I use lotion, actually Nivea cream. It really helped me. I use it on the cheek only since I find I break out around the nose area. But I have really dry hands and Nivea does wonders!

    I saw a Flyer Special on ebay that I'm very tempted to bid on. But DH thinks Brooks' rails might be too short. He certainly thinks so when he was eye-balling it at LBS and thus went with a Selle...
