Udderly Good for Cyclists

Bag BalmOriginally created to soothe and soften the sore udders of dairy cattle, Bag Balm was eventually adopted for use on a number of animals, soothing rough paws, minor cuts and abrasions. Comprised of nearly 100% lanolin, the salve also works amazingly well for the treatment and prevention of saddle sores.

    Bag balm is the shiznit. Greasy like an oil spill, but keeps things lubed better than KY.
