The shoes that Terry suggested would be a good idea I bought myself a pair of 661 ankle guards myself when I was constantly banging my ankles (I have several pairs of socks that are stained red with holes in the ankles) then I bought the ankle guards and was able to learn how to adjust my riding position to avoid hitting my ankles all the time now I don’t wear the ankle guards anymore, I have a '05 DX which also has cranks with nubs on them. Good luck with your ankle saving!
just learn not to hit them. it is the easiest thing to do. shaving the bolt down works, or so i have heard. they are knarly though. i am one of the few that have never really had a bad experience with them of the people who rode them for any decent period of time
I also have big nubs on my qu-ax. I find that there are periods when I hit my ankles every day(and sometimes a few times a day) and when I don’t hit them at all, even though I do the same type of riding and all. It’s been a no-ankle-hitting period for a few months now, but I still have marks on both of my ankles.
grind them off and get some carriage type bolts…
or get used to them… but even then… i landed wrong once and it actually chipped the bone in my ankle… so you should grind them off… do you really want to put something else on before you go ride?
skrobo, I don’t think he’s going to be jumping over a pick-up truck anytime soon I’m going to guess that this wrong landing happened during one of your massive gaps or rolling hops right? I would recomend you at least ride with a helmet for some of the stuff you do skrobo…
