Tried and True

I have been using Chamois Butt'r since late June 2008. I made the switch from Assos immediately after the Cowbell when I branded myself with my chamois. After 12 hours or riding in dry conditions my chamois had cut into my buttocks. The scars are just now fading!

I started using Chamois Butt'r prior to my being sponsored by them. For me, I want to know that a product works before I ask for sponsorship. Nothing worse than to HAVE to use a product that sucks!

After using Chamois Butt'r Eurostyle for 6 months and in all sorts of weather, I must say that this product keeps the 'taint happy. You get the 8oz Eurostyle for $19.99, twice as much as Assos. I use much less due to the thickness and "stay-ability" of the product. I know this because my white saddle is much less polished and people have not asked me why my shorts are oozing a white substance.

My saddle sores have been minimized and I do not have to re-apply during a long training ride or a 12 hour race. And it is made in the good 'ol USA, very important these days.

I have samples, so if you want to give it a try, just ask and you shall receive.

If it is made in the USA why is it called Eurostyle?
However, I totally agree that there a plenty of other products out there that perform better than Assos and are a lot cheaper!

I want to try some! Seriously!!!

My experience with Assos at Natz was horrible and I don't ever want to use it again!

It is called Eurostyle because it has a soothing, cool, tingly effect that European style creams have.

You set up Sophie and me with some samples at the 12hr HOT after I forgot my tub of vasoline. It worked well, thanks!
I look forward to trying the Eurostyle version. Kip
