but where I really need some help.. I would like some kind of lower back guard.. I hit the area between my back and ass so hard that it basically made the rest of the day a complete waste.. my back locked up so hard that I could not really freely rotate and ride.. it sucked.. so I have decided I will deal with the annoyance of having come kind of back guard over blowing a whole day of riding because I am too cool for pads..

recommendations? thoughts?

any help as always is appreciated..
I was in the same shoes as you. Not wearing a helmet in the snow that is... Until it hit me, I'm a cyclist as well and wear a helmet religiously. I realized that unlike cycling, I know I'm going to fall. Alot! 1000x more likely to smoke a tree, and have people flying around with very long blunt sticks with sharp edges... I'm going with a Giro G10 myself. Go try some on and see what fits ya the best.
