    what's so bad about wearing protection? if you're wearing jeans they'll go right over them. downhillers, freeriders, dirjumpers all wear protection. you can never have enough.

    Who are you referring this too? Me? Damn you should go to some english class to UNDERSTAND that I do not want to wear the knee pads. She force me to wear and is giving me a option of choosing a knee guard. And now Im looking for a knee guard options that will not restrict my pedalling.

    What did you do? Shin yourself? Because if you get a pair that fits you shouldn't even feel them.

    Is it a flesh wound?

    Suck it up princess. Flesh wounds are nothing, I rode for a full day at the hill with a gaped arm and then when the races were done I hit up the clinic to receive 12 stitches. Try breaking a bone like a hip, thats easily the worst injury I've had. It haunts me to this very day, in fact this very minute I'm in pain because of it. Flesh wounds hardly faze me anymore.

    You don't want to be forced to wear pads? Don't go home showing off your scratches.

    Yes, I am using clipless.

    Is it a flesh wound?

    Geez, why dont you guys understand....Its my mom who wants me to wear it. And accidents happen, how am I not to get stitches. Anyway come to think of it, if its not a competition, whats wrong wearing knee pads? Its better to reduce the amount of injury as much as possible so It wont affect urself when you are aged, am I correcT?

    If you need any less then four stitches, you really don't need stitches. If it's between four and seven stitches super glue will suffice.

    And no, I am not kidding, this truly is how I look at flesh wounds.

    Sure it is, and he's angry he has to wear knee pads because he's tired of getting himself injured.

    +1 I always drink a glass of Stan's sealant before riding! Then if I do get cut, the wound seals itself without getting my clothes stained!

    I popped my collor bone right through the skin a couple of years back.

    That stung quite a bit.

    Its quite unnerving to see bone sticking through your shoulder out of the corner of your eye.

    I have some pics somewhere.

    Yes, the E.R. uses super glue too to seal small cuts...I do it too. For some reason it also deadens the nerve endings near the cut. Slap some SuperGlue on there and it hurts less. Weird...probably because it's toxifying the body and the body is trying to fight it.


    Yeah hooligan...I broke my arm off once...I just put it in my Camelbak until I was done riding. (It made a good kickstand when I had to pee too...I just had a hard time holding the drawers and aiming the pee'er at the same time )

    ah, wheelhot! RE knee pads that you can comfortably pedal with - check into volleyball knee pads - they're soft & not too restrictive, but they may tear upon impact since they don't have a hardshell cover. The downhill/mountain board knee pads are heavier, harder, but also not restrictive - they seem to be very sweaty, though. The volleyball pads are probably about $10/pair, while the dh/mt board are about $40/pair. Go to a bike shop & try a pair on, take a spin on a bike, and see how they feel. Now, if it's shin guards she wants you to wear, hit the soccer section of the sporting goods store & get a light, cheap pair - @ $15. The ones with straps are cheaper, but may move around. The ones with a solid, stretchy back will stay put, but will make you sweat. Make your Mom happy. She's bothering you because she loves you!

    RE falling down - stop doing that!! My son doesn't complain about his injuries anymore - unless he's really hurt. He complains about injuries to his bike... but then, he doesn't fall down too much; he tends to run into trees full bore. Better to break your helmet than your head.
    As with mud, life, too, slides by.

    Yup, I was gonna suggest the foamy ones. They'd flex nicely with your joints.

    Your Mommy is just worried 'bout you dude...at least she bought you a nice ride. Don't give her flack...just say "okay" and respect her wishes until you're grown up and moved out.

    My parents must have been raised on the other side of the tracks, though. I beat myself up all the time and they didn't care. My dad had a bit'o'Knevil in him.

    I use 661 veggie knee wraps and their pretty comfy. Fox also make a really good soft pad,not as bulky as the 661. Girlscout uses those and he likes them a lot. Both are fine for lots of pedaling.

    If you pick out some nice pink one's it will be easier for you to find a pretty dress to go with them.

    Seriously, accidents happen, stitches happen, broken bones happen. All part of the sport. However as long as you live under your parents roof they have to right to want to protect you. After all, they are the ones paying your doctor bills.
