    I tried one once, and found it slimy and unpleasant :p

    As you probably know, these creams are supposed to reduce chafing, and the antibacterial ingredients are suppose to reduce the incidence of pimple-like saddle sores.

    the one I bought was from a bike shop.

    I'm using Assos and very happy with it. You don't feel the sweat and feel much fresher at the end of the ride.
    Haven't tried any other creams - there was only one other at the shop and it smelt so pepperminty that just the thought of putting it on my chamois scared me:)

    I usually use ASSOS before a ride which does the job very well. I moved a few weeks ago I can't find my ASSOS and I now have a bad rash from heat -obviously proves thar the antibacterial agent works, even if it's not that cheap. Wish it was cheaper, but works for me.

    I use either Keywin Shammy Cream [sic] or 3B Action Cream.

    You can get the Keywin stuff at bike shops (I don't about availability in Australia) and the 3B at pharmacies and supermarkets.

    I raid my sons Bepanthen. Its a nappy rash cream but works well for me. Much more plentiful around these parts, our LBS kinda sux and doesn't stock much roadie gear. ;)

    there is, IMHO only one.

    ASSOS Chamois Creme...acts as a chamois conditioner and excellent on sensitive bits, use before and after a longer ride as well as a chamois conditioner, which over time helps Knicks atune to your butt and riding style.

    Also good as an all purpose skin antibacterial agent if you have a road rash or shaving slipups. It is a cool feel too, just dont use too much as you feel like you are slipping around on a whipped cream cake.

    Costs low $20s at bike shops and Bicycle Victoria sells to all at their Collins Street HQ.

    :)

    PS news is that Lance and Ms Crowe have split up too FWIW.

    I was under the impression that you only need it for longer rides. Like being a pro and doing 1000k's over 7 days or something.

    I've personally never needed it and I don't get saddle sores.
