I just fell off my bike recently and this has made me start considering getting elbow and knee pads. Does anyone have anything to recommend for commuting/road cycling. The pads for mountain biking look way too bulky though I'm sure they work. I'm looking for some basic protection which I reckon would be better than nothing.
Years ago I fell off my motorbike going at a much higher speed than on my bicycle. I slid along the road on my stomach but because I was wearing a ski jacket, jeans, and gloves I got hardly a scratch. Yesterdays accident on my bike gave me significantly worse damage.
