Thinking ahead to when I make bike shorts from Fehr Trade's Duathlon pattern, I went searching and found the following chamois pad manufacturer

Seattle Fabrics also carries chamois pads. Search under Monolith pad or look under the Green Pepper bike shorts pattern.

Hope this helps.

Ooh fantastic! I've got a backlog of finished Duathlon shorts to share so I'll add this info in, too. You didn't happen to come across any UK/EU suppliers in your search by any chance? ;)

In testing the pattern, we found that laminated foam padding used in bra making was the next best substitute for cycling chamois, if you have some on hand and/or are only doing short rides...

Any ideas where to find this?

Thanks. :)
I'm not a racer but I did purchase your pattern. I like some padding when I ride. A little cush for my tush, as it were.

I hope that doesn't mean something obscene in the U.K.

Hi Pammy
I've sent them an email about their international shipping costs to Aust.
I hope to get an indicative shipping cost from them.

I haven't found any UK/EU suppliers in my searches yet. I'll make a sticky note to keep my eyes open for one though. :)

I bookmarked that website a while back, but haven't bought anything from them yet. Would love to hear a review if anyone has purchased their chamois!
