The Magic School Bus

What's the story behind that school bus? Is it owned by a bike shop?
Hahaha... nah. A neighbor was a school bus driver for a while and had it parked in our yard. I took the picture, then photoshopped all of those logos onto it afterward just for the heck of it lol

Well swapped all my parts from my 2009 STP to a 2011 Specialized p.1 frame. Rides so much better. I need to lower the fork to 80mm and replace the lead weight of a seatpost thats on it now.

Dartmoor Two6Player

Thinking about goiong back to a P3 again. Just the third time. The frame I could buy is technically fine, but the paint is completly done. Any suggestion for a potential frame color. Maybe a classy gloss black, with some understatement decals?!

So this is loosely related to dirt jumping and street. But for everyone who wears pads I'm looking for shin knee and elbow pads any recommendations?

I use poc elbow and knee pads (VPD 2.0) whenever I'm riding DH, enduro, or DJs. Probably one of the most expensive options out there but you get what you pay for. Had the same ones for 5 years now I think, and after a quick toss in the washing machine they look brand new again (even though I've had a few gnarly crashes with them). Quite flexible material so you can still pedal really well. Highly recommend saving up for these.

**Since you mentioned shins, I'll add that poc also makes a shin pad that supposedly covers your leg from your ankle up to the bottom of the knee pad. Never seen them in person or tried them out so I can't say if they're useful or not.

Ok I'll definitely check them out. I'm in need of pads my legs are constantly covered in bruises and cuts

Edit: oh my I see what you mean its gonna cost like 400 for pads. I think I'm gonna start with some park knee pads and find some nice and a bit cheaper shin pads

Changing the fork to a white one and a new wheelset, and now I'm torn between tanwalls and black tires. The tanwall Table Tops might be a bit of a squeeze to fit, so I might have to go with the Holy Rollers.

Thoughts?

EDIT: The frame is chromed.

Go tan walls. Then strip the paint off the fork and polish it so it matches the frame.

Check out Shadow Conspiracy Invisa-Lite pads, they have low pro shin, elbow and knee.

Having cut shins is just apart of the game my dude. But for knee pads I find you can’t go wrong with Dakine. I got a set with the d30 padding, small enough to fit under jeans for dirt jumping and don’t fall down the legs when doing 25k + Trail rides and priced right around $120

I'd recommend something fairly low-profile with d3o or a similar material. I've got the Scott Soldier 2 pads, and they fit under straight-legged jeans okay (they're on under my grey jeans in this photo)

Apparently Fox has their own take on the semi-solid material, with better ventilation (according to a rep, take from that what you will)

Is there a modern day equivalent of the 661 Kyle Straight knee pad? i.e. The go-to pad that everyone runs. Mine are still going strong 10 years on but they’re pretty bulky compared to more modern pads.
