[Cyclelicious] New comment on A few of my favorite things... Part 2.

The Stouts has left a new comment on your post "A few of my favorite things... Part 2":

The leaching was actually a problem before I started using conditioner . Since I've started doing so and applying as stated it hasn't been a problem at all.

I'm thinking part of it might be that since I don't ride with bike shorts and ride longer distances regularly this way, more perspiration gets to the saddle and leaches the dye, as opposed to a cyclist wearing padded shorts for longer rides, or street clothed rider doing shorter distances <8-10 miles. I checked with Brooks customer service and they confirmed this and reccomended more conditioner to help reduce the problem

Thats when I spoke with Rivendell and and ordered the Obernauf's and tried the application method from my friend who'd done military time. The two combined has resolved the problem.
