I made a new years’ resolution to stop chewing up my shins on my pedals, so I’ve been looking for some armor.
If anyone knows any good places in Maine that sell armor (sixsixone would be nice) please let me know…I drove all over the state this week and I couldn’t find anything.
Anyway, since I can’t find anything in-state, I’m looking online. I’m not sure how to size myself though. I’m about 5’10", 160lbs and I have rather muscular legs, but smaller arms. How adjustable are the sixsixone knee/shin and forearm/elbow guards? Does anyone of similar size/build own a set?
Just to add my 2 cents afterwards, I went with large and I’m only 5’8". They may look to big on me, but
a. I don’t care.
b. No one is going to be looking at me hopping up a flight of stairs on my MUni and say, “Ha! That guy’s leg armor is too big!”
c. When I ordered them, they only had large and small, and I didn’t feel like waiting.
They actually feel fine on my legs. I can see how people feel like they restrict leg movement, but I feel so much more indestructable while wearing them!
