What type of strap

Ok..this may have been discussed before...but with this bike, I seem to end up sitting on my balls after a long ride. Tried some straps..but nothing comfortable yet.
Am I alone here>?

Thanks weljo2001
I do have the front of my Corbin seat raised about 1/2 inch, but when braking, I still find myself sliding forward, while gonads seen to stay in place.
(I am average )

Yes...I need a change in underwear...that is what I am asking about.
What types of shorts are most comfortable for riding?

Don't sit on your junk! Use the stock seat mod where you stuff through the holes in the seat. The other one could crack your seat!

Boxer Briefs work for me but some guys wear biker shorts. I've got a pair to try out on a long trip but never used them.

I have a pair of Saxx underwear. The have a separate "compartment" for your jewels and keep them in place. They're very comfortable.
