I'm concerned that perhaps it's a bit too close to the ride to make this sort of decision, however, I am curious about what others have found helpful. I haven't decided yet what I plan to do, but part of me thinks this might be worth a try. While I understand that much of this is a personal opinion/decision kind of item, when you ride longer distances, do you wear some sort of chamois or padding, or do you find that going without this works just fine? If you don't wear cycling specific bottoms, do you do anything else to assist with discomfort on long rides? Your thoughts are very much welcomed and appreciated.
