Thanks a lot guys. I don't mind paying a little money for something that works. So I will start with the Assos. Andy is that Oronain used after you ride?

I have the Assos and it seems fine for about 150km, but anything longer and things always seem to get a little itchy. I've also used the Rapha cream which doesn't seem to have the same itching effect.

You can pay ¥2400 for Assos bum cream or just go to your local drugstore and get a pot of baby's bum cream for about ¥400 ..... works just as well!

Just make sure you don't accidentally have a baby to go with the cream. That will end up costing you a hell of a lot more than if you had just gone for the Assos stuff in the first place.

I don't use anything. I got saddle rash once though and it was pretty stingy stuff. I used ASSOS skin repair to great effect to fix things up. I then used vaseline for a little bit before I got bored putting it on and went back to using nothing again. I did get a baby to go with things though and @TCC is right. They are a bit on the expensive side of things both on time and money. Enjoyable none the less.
