What seat and clothing do you use?

A good seat goes a long way to reducing that problem, a crappy seat can
make riding unbearable regardless of what you're wearing.

Wearing good quality, cycling knicks is the other part of the solution,
either as your shorts, or under whatever shorts you like to uni in.

Along with a good seat and bike shorts, I find that bodyglide
www.bodyglide.com/  applied to the inner thighs helps as well. I found
it locally at Sports Authority.

Found this for dealing with salt soars, when training for a '300 mile
kayak race' (http://home.comcast.net/~frogy130/ec/) that the wife and I
did.

The seat on the LX is not great. We have an LX that my wife and kids are
learning on, I find the seat too uncomfortable to ride. Can't imagine
jeans + the LX seat is a good mix. Would be worth upgrading the seat on
the LX (which will require a new seatpost too) to any of the KH seats.
That should do the trick :)

I always wear tight cycling shorts under my pants or shorts (no
underwear).

For med-long rides I don't wear jean pants or shorts and use Chamoix
Butt'r.

Ride everywhere and never just ride anywhere.  If you can ride where you
are going within a hour, do it, and if you can do a trick 50-75% of the
time do it along the way.- Bob Burnquist

If you are new to unicycling, or got a new unicycle/new seat, then this
is probably natural.  I had it and its a pain.  It only lasts about a
week or two.  It will go away with riding.
