    armor

    looking for armor. I tried n the 661 race elbow/forearm and knee/shin. I am looking to buy from one place but trying to find out what is better and why. Looking at the 661 race or the 661 4x4/2x4 stuff. Hopefully I can get something before Wed. shuttle runs as I am getting a new tire too as I ripped a big hole in the tread.... My price list just went up..... any others I should check out and is size similar to the 661 race stuff?

    Roach/Race Face Rally F/R stuff is pretty darn popular. Must be for a reason. From what I've read it holds up well and is as comfortable as can be.

    I have Rockgarden knee pads. They are fine. Don't cover the shin but that's what I wanted as I use clipless pedals so the fear of getting gashed from my pedals isn't there.. Mesh in the rear. Stay put. Hard shell over the knees. I just don't wear them very often at all. I'm sure one busted open knee would change that though.

    Jenson has a killer price on RF '08 shin guards if you need medium. About 1/2 price. Not local of course.

    Dainese 3X/ Forget I have em on!!

    If you want a hardshell knee and shin guard that you can pedal in with no discomfort, these are really good. Me and my girlfriend use them, and they have held up to a couple years of use and regular washings. We wear them on every ride, including XC rides. They have saved our knees from Arizona"s treacherous rocks numerous times.

    I have the race face/roach knee & shin protection as well as the elbow. I wear the knee&shin on almost every ride and slap on the elbow for national and whatnot. The knee & shin is awesome. A little warm sometimes but mostly i forget i have them on. The elbow protection sucks. They always slide down, maybe it is just me, or maybe it is just elbow protection in general.

    It's not just you, I had the same problem with those pads. My Dainese 3X stay in place better IMO.
