Ok, apparently I can't wear my old trishorts.  I'm chafing in a place lube doesn't want to stick.  So.. suggestions? What do you all like? i've Pearl Izumi, Descent that I tried and both had the same issue.

Zoot, Pearl Izumi & TYR

 

I have Sugio bike shorts (which I love), but not in a tri short...

I think everything I've tried in tri-shorts usually works.

 

I've got Louis Garneau, Pearl Izumi and Zoot shorts.  Haven't tried the Sugoi tri shorts but I love everything else they make.

I have Zoot and a local brand called Oomph! and both seem pretty good.  I have one particular chafe point, but proper lubrication fixes it.

One thing to know about tech clothing, including Tri-shorts, is that the material breaks down over time even though it may not look like it on a more macro level (i.e. to the eye). So if the shorts you're complaining about not working anymore, if they did work and worked well, and if you've had them longer than, say, a year, then consider getting another pair. Tech clothing breaks down. What once was free of chaffing can turn nasty once the fibers start fraying on a micro level.

Yeah, I need new under armour and new tri shorts. Mine from 2005 aren't going to cut it. The under armour especially -- serious chafing.
