    One idea is to go to your local sporting goods store and buy a set of soccer shin guards. Pretty cheap, usually you can find a set for less than $10.

    www.danscomp.com has some good deals. You just have to search all the mail order bike sites for deals. Performance, Bike Nashbar, Cambria, etc. There's a million of them out there

    I've got the 661 4x4 Knee/shin guard combo. Great pads, well ventilated for those hot days. Got 'em from Dans Comp for $39.

    I swear, he stole my post idea. Must be a Texas thing. Anyways, soccer guards can be bought for cheap. Just make sure that you don't get a junior size. If they look goofy, just wear them under some pants.Yeah, having a lack skin on the shin just isn't cool.

    Yep Adidas makes some soccer gaurds for under 10. That's what my boy got. I wear lizardskins for under 30. They work great, not too bulky to where I can wear pants over them.

    Soccer shin guards are better than nothing, but personally they wouldn't help me too much. All my pedal bite happens up near my knee. I'm getting shin guards for my birthday, thank god!!! And with them a sense of security to try bigger jumps (and not having to worry about slipping off the pedals and fvcking my legs up).
    I'm out of things to say . . .
