  • Draggin Jeans Wear in ??

    Hey ppl..

    Draggin Jeans, are they meant to be cardboard stiff, when new.. whats the best way to soften em up, the wife has washed em a few times, but they still leave big rashes on the back of my knees from having the knees up on the bike ??

    Any Suggestions.. please.. i gotta do something before track day, cause atm i can only wear em for about 20 mins on the bike then my legs are almost skinless from the stiff ness of em ??

    Soak in fabric softener ?

    Put in dryer ?

    Anything ppl.. please.

    get an old pair of tracky-daks and wear them underneath until they soften up.

          i never had that problem with them.

          if they are not skin tight wash them in water only as may have excess soap in them and put in dryer on low

            I would give advise, but for a 1st, I&#39;m with Dr Evil

              Can&#39;t say I&#39;ve ever had that problem. Mine were soft from the start.

                dont starch and iron them after they have been washed? I wouldnt chuck &#39;em in the dryer as they will probably shrink

                      stick them in the dryer not on heat but just airing. all dryers have this function so the heater cools down.
                      I took all the padding out of my leather jacket and stuck it in the dryer for 2 hours came out as soft as a babys bum (well cows bum)
                      It was probably like wearing the jacket for 12 months .

                        She may have read the label - funning thing that some women do, from memory it says to do this every so often to help restore them to their original condition/protectiveness or something.

                        I don know what you mean though mine tend to bunch up under the knee as well, but when you&#39;re riding on the track you don&#39;t really notice things like this

                          Thermal underwear could be a goer. Don&#39;t laugh :o , keeps you warm when its cold, and hardly noticeable when its hot.

                          Otherwise, ^^^wts^^^, some decent portions of "harden the f@#k up".

                            mine are never ironed. I hand wash them myself in like warm water.

                              Hand wash? Sheesh. First it was the seat rag... now it&#39;s domestic duties.

                              Edit: OK, i&#39;ll be constructive. My draggins gave me rashes on the back of my knees when I first got them. I have found that most loose jeans do this though.

                              After a few washes they&#39;ve loosened up a bit. I still do get the occasional bit of rash on the back of my knee... depends on the weather and how I am riding.
