i just thought it would look cool to see my initials leading the top 4 threads, just for petty giggles.

I did that with the whole main page once, but it was harder back then as the site had more traffic.

Been running a set of POC VPDs for a few years now. They're bombproof. Zero damage to them and me. Saved losing a few kilos off the knees over the years.

Some people dont like em because you gotta take your shoes off. That never bothers me, gives me a chance to tip out some loam. Don't know why that's such a huge factor for people, will they turn into a pumpkin if they take their shoes off in the forest?

Hah. Not a huge deal, but nice to take them full off/on and strap to top tube or pack for long climbs, or take em off to eat lunch if it's hot out etc.

They are all so personal, but for me the 7iDP projects are super comfortable, but seriously warm, as they are basically a thick leg warmer, with a big pad attached to them. They would be my heavy duty go to pad I think these days.

For lighter duties, i've never worn anything as comfortable as the Dainese Trail Skins 2. I came across them by chance after forgetting my pads for a ride, borrowed some & they were mega. Came home, ordered a pair straight away.
