    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.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.
