I've experienced numbness and different other pains in that area over
the years. Adjusting the saddle angle slightly downward has usually
helped.  Another thing that helped in the past, which I now do as a
matter of course, is to use different brands of cycling shorts-- Each
model of shorts has seams in different positions.  By rotating, you can
avoid generating hot-spots.  FWIW Pearl Isumi FieldSensor are the best
shorts I've found in 12 years of road racing and triathlons.  A single
seam in the middle of the shorts and a nice terry pad in front might
help a bit.

Well since we can eliminate the bikes whats the common denominator - the
shorts!

I suggest washing them at least once a month whether they need it or not!

I just couldn't resist!  ;)

Ok guys, anybody have this happen?

   After a ride where I'm on the aerobars I get a "burning" sensation near
   the end of my *** after I pee.  The burning lasts 5-10 minutes max.
   After 4ish hours this stops happening.

   I ride two different bikes and it happens on both.

   The bikes are identical from the last 3 seasons.

   I do ride "out on the nose" when on the aerobars.

   This has been happening for about 3 months and isn't getting better or
   worse.

   There is no doubt that it correlates directly to cycling and aerobar
   use.
