So...does shaving your upper leg/crotch area help prevent rash from forming in the area? What is the best in prevention? I'm doin a crosscountry ride this summer and this is rather important to say the least.

Gawd! I wouild expect shaving in that area to CAUSE irritation rahter than help. I use vaseline, applied to my crotch where chafing might occur, on long rides. It's worked well for me except with shorts that have the HFS bladder. Those don't "breathe" at all so the vaseline gets smothered under plastic and it becomes a mess!
