Bikes: More than 1, but, less than S-1
My progression usually goes hand, wrist, head, back, slide to stop, have bike land on face. No need for knee pads with that. I too have plenty of shin scars from loosing pedals in rough terrain and getting whacked by them. But, not so much the knees. Sorry. I can imagine the issues with finding some that will fit, stay in place and function for you. Telemark skiing I used to use a pair of skateboarding kneed pads that had adjustable straps that I had modified. They worked well over light weight underwear and under or over ski pants. But, can't imagine spinning with them against bare skin. If you were wearing them over downhilling pants I could imagine skating pads working fine.
Birth Certificate, Passport, Marriage License Driver's License and Residency Permit all say I'm a Fred. I guess there's no denying it.
