    Do you know laser hair removal hair ?

    Hi, I'm Robbie.

    I am riding bike more and more often and I was wondering if it was a good idea to shave my legs...
    What do you guys think? Is it any good for the perf? Or it is just a big mistake?

    See you everybody

    Cheers Robbie, welcome to Bike Forums.

    I usually shave parts of skin too while I'm at it, to get more aero and weight advantage for my bike commuting.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

    …I've always thought the reason for leg-shaving was to make treating road-rash easier (from the POV of reducing infection, and easing removal of dressings!)

    I depends on how serious you are at being an elite level rider. I personally have given up that thought.

    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    You need to shave your head, too.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.
