What's your remedy for Swamp A$$?

Long hot rides under the Texas sun can really heat you up in the wrong places. Using moisture wicking clothes and powder but still feel sticky after awhile.

Been using these: but hoping for something less messy.

Gold Bond is okay.

Fresh Balls works okay

If you're using moisture wicking clothing, don't use powder. The powder clogs the fabric and prevents it from wicking. This bit of information came with my LD Comfort Shorts.

I use 48hr spray antiperspirant the Sports variety in summer.
Sometimes I get carried away and to help keep the nether regions dry, bend over and strip spay the lower back area and crack.

Clubman Talc. And if it's a really long ride....Boxers as well, they breathe better.

I like to wear my bicycling shorts. The built in chamois give a bit of extra cushioning and moisture wicking for the long hot rides. They make thinner cloth ones for use under clothing as well as the usuall thicker ones.

This conversation got me thinking a bit, none of it in a good way of course!

I saw these somewhere:

http://www.ventz-range.com

You slide them on the cuffs of your jacket to let more airflow up your sleeves, in principle it sounds like a good idea. Which leads me to a bad idea!

How about a magnetic ram-air scoop for your wedding tackle that mounts to the tank? Funnel air towards the goods.

Now to think of a good name for this ridiculous idea: Beanbag Blower, Cajones Cooler, Testicools? I'm leaning towards the last one. I'll get back with ya after I run to the trademark office!

Or could skip that bit of engineering and advertise it as a way to increase your size up to 10x! Add in a disclaimer that although it'll increase your girth, chicks don't dig anaphylaxis shock. Epipen feature costs extra.

BUY BUY BUY!

I saw a guy riding a Harley in a kilt last summer. This is not as rare a site as you might think in Nova Scotia. Not sure if he was wearing anything under it but I'm guessing he had lots of air flow under there.

Antiperspirant? In my pits it makes me break out in a rash since in inhibits my body's natural cooling process, sweat. I can only imagine what it would do in my nether region.

you have an allergic reaction to some of the chemicals in antiperspirant - which is not uncommon.

The rest of my body sweats and riding with a mesh jacket in summer does cool the rest of my sweating body - soaking the jacket in water before putting it on also helps keep me cool... the lower back and crack are not in airflow to allow for evaporation cooling... and no I'm not putting on Mesh pants!

I low-sided in mesh (armored) pants a few years back, and just tore a couple of threads on my left knee of the pants, since repaired. Other than that - STILL have them, STILL use them...!
