    Angry Hot crotch in saddle

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I've been riding about 3 months. After I'm in the saddle and I hit the 25 mile mark,[ I can always tell even if I don't look at my computer] due to My crotch is on Fire. I use chamois butter, and I wear a good chamios padded shorts.
    I don't have pain just extreme heat. When I stop it stops. My saddle is a Specialized Dolse womans.
    Any ideas out there?

    also, sometimes a haircut is what is needed.

    You could try installing a window unit air conditioner on your top tube.

    Is this anything like Lindsay Lohan's fire crotch?

    Hey - maybe you need a Terry Butterfly Ti. I didn't care for the saddle, but I did notice that even on really hot days, after my ride the area around the cutout would be ICE cold! The saddle, not me. I never figured that out, but the airflow must have been just right. I've never seen anyone else mention this, but I always figured it would be a nice feature to have on a long ride, had the saddle itself been the right shape.

    Good luck!

    Hey, welcome to TE! Too bad your first post is about such a touchy subject. We'd love to hear more about you and eventually you'll figure out if you need a new saddle or if your bike fit is wrong or whatever it is that is causing your discomfort.
