I’m a new guy here and have just started back into unicycling after a four year break due to ankle surgeries. My question to all you with more experience concerns the family jewels. I have the problem of getting my jewels out of the way and if I don’t figure out a solution soon my family jewels will turn into gold from the weight and pressure put onto them.
So any tips, suggesting and secrets that you are willing to give up would be much appreciated by all three of us.
In two words (probably mentioned in the link above), bike shorts.
That covers a lot of it. The opposite of bike shorts would probably be boxers. You don’t want to use a standard athletic supporter, as usually they have the straps right where your weight bears down on the seat so they’re not comfortable.
Oh and if you think wearing a cup might be a good idea, you probably haven’t thought it through.
Are you talking about chafing & irritation along with impact concerns? Bike shorts and “pulling it all up” prevent ballbusters, while anti-chaf cream and no underwear solve the other issues, at least for me. They say the more experience you have, the less of a problem this all becomes. I’m still waiting for that magical day.:o
I don’t remember who wrote it, but “junk to the front!”. I’m starting to use bike shorts to keep my boys up front and safe. Otherwise, I have to constantly move them, and hopefully, the shorts will help alleviate some of the chafing. I’m still a noob, so I’m still making lots of rookie mistakes.
I asked this question a while back and i believe Jerrick said “junk upfront”, that should be a t-shirt, its the best slogan lol. I now use it to describe how to not crush the boys when sitting to my younger cousin who just got a uni. Also if you hold the seat tight to you when you mount this avoids crushing until you get used to the wonderful seat design unicycles have. Good luck!
