Coming back after fifteen years...
« on: November 11, 2020, 05:49:22 PM »

Hi all, after taking a fifteen year break I'm going to hit the track (well hopefully not HIT the track) in 2021.  Over the winter I'm going to to buy and prep a bike and make sure my old gear is up to snuff.  With that in mind, is there a post in the forums or a page on the website that outlines the specific requirements for bike and gear?  Thanks in advance for your guidance.   :tiphat:

Never mind, I found it.  It's on the main page, in the upper right in small letters: Policies   :rtfm:

Thank you for the warm welcome gentlemen.  I'm getting a tow vehicle set up on Monday, a trailer on Tuesday, and I believe Milkman and I have a deal for his 750.  I am looking forward to meeting you all in March.   :cheers:

I bought this back protector in 2001 or 2002 and ran it for two seasons.  Is it still acceptable to use it today or should it be replaced?

I personally would buy a new back protector. The technology has advanced a good bit since 2002 and a newer back protector will be more comfortable to wear and protect better. Heads and spines are two areas where you don’t want to skimp on the gear.
