    To shave or not to shave?

    So is shaving your legs an 'air-resistance' thing, or an injury prevention thing?
    I'm failry new to cycling, and haven't taken the plunge yet. I have heard both points of view and want to get more opinions.
    Thanks!

    Instead of starting a whole new thread on a subject that has been debated to death over the years, you might find it easier to run a search on the forums using the words 'shave leg'.

    You'll find heaps on info and it should help you to make your decision.
