knee scrapage.

I'm tired of getting my knee scraped. What is a good knee/shin guard? I scraped it two times on the same spot. I bet when it heals, i'll have a darker pigmeted skin since i ruined it numerous times.

Dude...Chicks dig scars! But if you really want a good pair of knee pads then personally I like the 661 knee pads. If you want the full knee and leg armour then I like the new Fox stuff along with TLD and 661. You got lots to choose from just go to your LBS and try a few on.

oh, no. Just mountain biking. I was going too fast through a corner and I pressed the brakes too late and too hard that my rear locked up. I slide the whole turn face first. I was holding onto my handle bars and i we were both lying flat on the floor sliding maybe 4 to 5 feet, haha.
