Paceline Chamois Butt'r is a non-greasy skin lubricant and chamois designed to improve riding comfort. What does it do?
Creates a less abrasive contact between skin and short to prevent chafing
Moisturizes skin allowing for less irritation
Cools and comforts an area that you most dearly want to protect
Where do I put it?
Some people rub it into their chamois (pad) on the shorts before putting the shorts on. Others apply it directly (and quite liberally) to all parts of their skin that contact the chamois. And some, for extra protection, apply to both the shorts and themselves.

Upon first using a product like this, you have to get past some issues with "gooping" cream in that general region. But you soon find the benefit quickly out ways the alternative.
Even as a female I find that it prevents a lot of rubbing and irritation. I use it for both mountain and road riding- especially on long tours or century rides.

Chamois Butt'rs tag line is "Butt'r your Buns" and that's exactly what you do. It provides good protection against chafing for those long rides and because of reduced friction also extends the life of your cycling shorts.
This version doesn't contain Eucalyptus which provides the tingle that Assos or Chamois Butt'r Euro Style do which is fine by me. I would prefer not to tingle "down there" and have seen no other benifit to them.
Chamois Butt'r also seems to be a little more reasonably priced for the amount when compaired to some of the chamois creams on the market.
Summed up: If you ride your bike a lot and don't like walking like a cowboy, this stuff is for you!!
Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

I've tried a couple of different creams and like this one the best. It does a good job of eliminating any chaffing but still doesn't leave you with an oily feel after cleaning up. I really don't have a problem with chaffing or rubbing but it does seem to add a little bit of extra comfort for longer rides and you don't even notice it once you're riding.
Summed up: Try it if you have any rubbing issues especially since it's one of the lowest cost solutions.

Don't leave home without it. Saves a lot of wear and tear on parts of your anatomy that you don't want to wear and tear. My experience is that it lasts all day even on hot days. I live in FL and it is hot and humid and I don't ride without it. Cleans up easily from your bike shorts and your skin.
I never needed to use a chamois lube until recently. After trimming down some extra weight, I noticed I could no longer ride for an extended period without pain. I tried a few different types and ended up using this one. I think it is the best. It has a great way of soaking into the chamois after a few miles. You hardly notice it's there, but it continues to work perfectly. Saved my a$$ on many rides since. It also washes out very easily ... not greasy at all.
I've used Chamois Butt'r for several long rides and some shorter (30 mile) ones. I don't really notice any benefit on the shorter rides, but on longer ones it really does seem to reduce chafing and discomfort in the groin and butt.
Cleans up easily in the shower and the washer; doesn't leave any residue.
I've started using it for all my long rides. Makes a good ointment for chapped lips too, in a pinch.
I prefer to put it on my parts, rather than the chamois pad, and I use it both fore and aft. It goes on kind of thick and goopy, and feels a little strange when you snug up your shorts, but within a mile you don't notice it at all. No odor, no tingling(!), all good.
I've tried several lubricants over the years including my old runner's favorite Bag Balm. Nothing has worked as well Chamois Butt'r. I use it for training, spin sessions and endurance riding. In two 24 hour races, I found that an application of Chamois Butt'r about every 75 miles provided nearly complete protection from irritation. I've never had a problem during training and only minor soft tissue irritation after 225 miles continuous riding. Trial and error has shown that I now need to use less per ride than initially, hence my tubes last longer than they did 3 years ago.
