    Shin/knee pads

    My legs took a pounding today, my xpedo pedals cant show up fast enough. I picked up some shin/knee pads online they arrived yesterday and there not exactly a great fit. I was wondering if anyone knows of a place to check them out in person im thinking of picking up some TLD ones or any other suggestion will be taken into consideration.

    If you're in the San Diego area, I know that BikeBling in Escondido has them on their shelves. I went there and picked up the TLD KG5400s (knee only). So far I like them a lot and they don't move around on me and I don't notice they're on after a while. I tried the KG5450s but didn't need the extra coverage for the riding I do.

    Hi gigerrider,

    Since you're in Orange County, check out "The Path" in Tustin (a very popular shop in SoCal). They have TLD and 661 stuff in stock most of the time.

    Hope this helps, and good luck!

    Thanks a lot tom. I googled them and got directions I ended up with some "SIX SIX ONE" knee/shin pads the 70 dollar ones they fit like a glove. I really like that they have the like a almost built in knee brace. There sweet I hope I don't have to get much use out of them hahaha.

    And the "Path" is a great store they seeming have everything I was like a kid in a candy store in there. Everyone I spoke with was very helpful as well.

    Hi gigerrider,

    Glad the store worked out for you...my first trip there, I spent over an hour there and didn't realize how long it had been 'til I was leaving.

    I just picked up some 661 knee/shin pro's and they fit great! Although after 3 full days of riding downhill with them, they started to dig into my shin and bruise the crap out of the one spot. I prob could just loosen them up next time to avoid that issue.

    I also got the 661 Recon helmet and its one of my favorite purchases next to the compII full face from them!

    All in all, I really like the 661 products, they havent let me down yet!
