    I don't have pics but I use the lizard skins shin gaurds. They actually work pretty good. Got a nice deal on them off of e-bay. $30 for a NIB pair.

    roach pads. ive only had them 2 months and theyve already saved me quite a few times. i have two huge gashes in them form i think its my pedals in a wreck. woulda been quite a few stiches that one. they fit really well too. after a while i dont even notice im wearing them. then onlt thing i dont like is the middle strap that goes over the calf i think it pointless since it risticts movement so i always just keep it loose. they cost me 115$CDN and well worth every penny

    Used to use Dainese knee/shin guards but they stuffed up so now using Fox 911 knee/shins. They work well and seems anthonaut did it first here are some pics of them in use at my last race and expression session.

    I also use Dainese body armour though.

    Dont really need to post a pic, I use the same armor as Anthonaut and Hopper... Dianese armor is my favourite out of the few that ive tried, pricey, but light, breathable and very comfy.

    you can get knee specific but i dont think you can get just shin. im not sure though. i would suggest getting the knee shin. well worth it even if you just bash a knee on the bar or crowns(like i have) if your worried about mobility i barely even notice the roaches and the dainese are aparently even lighter and more comfortable

    Jebus cripes it must suck to have to wear all that armour to save yourself from injury. Better to be uncomfortable than to be sidelined forever though eh boys?

    I don't wear shin pads or elbow pads. I only use knee pads when I even wear pads.

    For merely protecting against pedal gouges, etc, I like the neoprene guards also (I have Hammers).
    They are hot in the summer, though.

    If only they made dainese to fit adults ...

    I love dainese but none of their stuff fits my chest or shoulders. I run 661 one everything.

    How do you find those work gastro?...my cousin was looking at a set but I wasn't sure if they would do anything more than tall socks.

    Yeah, really. I was thinking about running their knee/shins as elbow/forearm guards.

    The Hammers you mean? I use them for dirt jumping and street/trialsy stuff. They are excellent at preventing those little pedal pin core samples that take forever to heal, and offer much better rear protection than my Roaches. There is a reinforced panel in the shin that helps, too. They're definitely much tougher than socks.

    Downsides: hot as hell in summer, the knee protection on the combos (which I have) is nearly nonexistent. Probably not the best choice for bombing rock gardens.
