Interbike 2009 – Dainese’s 2010 gear

Last month I posted a preview of Dainese’s new gear for 2010. At Interbike 2009 I got to preview them first hand. Below are a pictures of the upcoming protective gear. Check back in a few months as we’ll have more information directly from the D-Store.  Dainese gear is available through BTI.

My 3 Favorite Words…

… ok, not my favorite favorite, but they’re up there: “OUT FOR DELIVERY”. I saw that this morning when I hopped online to check the status of my shipment. I expected to see these three words and I was not disappointed.

C’mon. You know you like seeing those words too

Of course the next couple of hours at work were spent vigilantly watching the front door (it’s a small office) from my cubby. When the UPS man walked in I was up out of my chair before he realized what had happened. As soon as he left, I got to open up a box with some nice stuff I had ordered yesterday from I love that they’re based in So. Cal.

Some new stuff to try out:

Sette Strike Elbow Guards

Sette Strike Knee/Shin Guards

Sette Clear Frame Patch Protectors

I have already applied the Clear Frame Patch to my 29er. The derailleur cables and brake lines have rubbed some of the paint off the frame. The carbon fiber fork’s clear coat is showing rub too so it needed some protection.

The pads are something I should have purchased a while ago as my legs and arms have lots of scars on them. The only problem is that I don’t normally fall when I’m doing the hard stuff (I’m too timid to really go for it). It’s when I disengage my brain on the easy stuff that I eat it good and get my scrapes/bruises. What to do? Wear the armor all the time? Maybe not.

This Saturday we’ll be riding Aliso Woods in South Orange County. I like Aliso because of the variety but I am not a fan of Rock-it, RL’s favorite trail. I am hoping the Sette “plastic courage” will get me through it in one piece. We’ll see. 😉
