CCH -- I don't think it's a sweaty butt that's the problem. :)

Baby powder or corn starch. Corn starch is less of an irritant if you are sensitive at all. Get one of those spice bottles from the dollar store that have a sprinkler lid and put the cornstarch in that.

If it's actually sweat, this won't help: but if it's not skin moisture - a tampon works. Get the super slim/junior size. Sorry if that's TMI.

Anti-monkeybutt.. its real, lol.. I thought they had special riding undies?

Just wondering-- what is the material your pants are made from?

I dont like riding in thick jeans-- i hate butt sweat!! Lol. I like to ride in a thin jean, or Capri pants. :) i also like the thinnest materian i can find.. maybe a pair of running or athletic pants? Might look silly but who cares? Lol.

A saddle cover might be your best option.

I guess it's actually called a seat saver (found more results with google as "saddle seat saver". Not too expensive, easy to wash, and a comfy ride to boot!

Petite, those aren't a sweat stain, someone didn't have enough protection during menses. I know, I've had to try to remove it from numerous saddles as when people realize what made the stain they won't buy the saddle. Wearing Depends is a good idea for that time or sweating.

Really? That's kind of gross, I can see why people wouldn't want someone's saddle with that embedded into it...

Still, I can't judge. It's not like I haven't accidently bled on something before

This is probably starting to fall into the category of too much information, but in my case I think it's likely from peeing out in the woods and not getting perfectly dry down there afterwards. Definitely not menses as I'm spayed. And the color isn't that dark.

But it also falls right in line with that large seam in the front of my jeans. So it is probably a combination of excess moisture and the seam causing friction.

A little too much information but since we are going there in the discussion anyway, well, we might as well!

When I only owned dark saddles I never had a noticeable spot at all. But with a medium oil saddle, well, there is a little bit of a darker spot starting to show up.

No matter what the cause, I would guess most saddles, after many years of use, will have some kind of wear and discoloration to the seat. Whether it's from the rider's jeans, sweat, a little excess moisture after getting off to pee, etc. It's almost inevitable.

A seat saver may be a good idea. I used to use fleece ones just for comfort. But I've gotten to like a slick seat saddle now so it's hard to put stuff between me and the seat.

Does anyone have a light colored seat that does NOT have any wear marks after years of use? Unless they use a seat saver I would think not.
