Your pad or mine?

11 01 2018

I don’t want to say I told you so…but I kinda told you so.

Well, maybe I didn’t so much as tell…but maybe I asked the question:

“Padsets: poised for a comeback?”

And if not the entire padset…maybe just the crossbar pad.

In that prescient post, I noted my own journey that culminated in me digging up a cross-bar pad to run on my bike.

But it’s not just me who’s holding a torch for the crossbar pad.

Shawn Mac is rocking one proudly these days on his 2018 MAC Signature Complete bike.

And now The Shadow Conspiracy is jumping into the crossbar pad game!

They just introduced a limited edition crossbar pad. (Only 50 sets exist).

According to Shadow, it’s a”callback to classic race pads. [It] features a velcro closure and a custom camo crow print.”

Friends, it’s starting to look like we might be at the cusp of a crossbar pad renaissance.

Remember, you heard it here first!

Age is just a number

While we’ve featured (really) old guys who ride before, by and large they’ve been racers.

That got me thinking about the freestyle/park guys…

Are the freestyle/park guys going to be able to hang when they start hitting 50?

Well, it looks likes I got my answer.

Check out this park rider, pushing 60, and still out there getting rad!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I especially like crossbar pad he’s rocking. (Told ya they were making a comeback.)
