    I wear them when I am doing alot of riding wether its dj's or trails, it may make me look funny but getting your shins shredded makes you look funny too.

    Shin guards make you look cool!!!!!!! I wear full pads and a fullface when I ride in the city..but then again im going stair gaps and stuff like that. I see no need to do them while hopping? Unless you are doing crankflips, I learned the hardway and have many pedal tattoo's on my shin's.

    if you have to think about wearing shin guards, wear them. i slipped a pedal about 3 months ago and had to have 13 stitches put in my leg.

    Well, I am sitting here with a nasty gouge in my shin from doing some no-footed endo's.
    Not at all fun when your foot misses the pedals.
