I am looking at ways to deal with jeans aging prematurely due to saddle rub. While I could change clothing (not nessarily an option), as suggested in an older thread, I am wondering if there is such a thing as shorts to put over jeans than can quickly be removed. If not, has anyone experimented to see if this would help diminish the issue?
You could switch to a saddle that isn't as abrasive. That's one of the reasons people like leather saddles such as Brookes -- even if they're more expensive and heavier than plastic wonders. The leather saddles also breathe and wick moisture and I've found that wet cloth abrades much faster than dry cloth.
ps. Many cyclists consider saddle worn clothing to be a mark of pride.
