Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

It's like European Gold Bond. It takes some getting used to, but you'll learn to love that tingly feeling.

I think its a great and "refreshing" feeling, but if you have any saddle sores or anything like that--be careful as it can sting quite badly!! Putting shorts on with Assos creme on the chamois is like a good cup of coffee early in the morning--it will definitely wake you up!!

The assos creme has anti-bacterial properties to keep the fungus at bay..

1st few times you use it, it feels like its burning but then it feels good..

let me ask a question

are you supposed to rub this stuff in all the way or leave it on kinda wet so as to give a proper lube? same question applies to direct rub into the skin and also rubbing it into the chamios. how much needs to be applied?
