    Does anyone know a good place (Web Site) where I might find large adult sized protective gear such as knee pads and elbow pads. My local bike shops and department stores don't seem to have any. Thanks !

    You could try a skate board shop, they would be more likely to carry them.

    I need to go through my local Yellow Pages and see what we have around here. I have been through the skate board sections at the local stores and haven't found anyhting. I hate to mail order somethng and not being able to do a fit comparison between one size smaller or larger. Such a pain sometimes with the transaction time. Been to 2 different Sports Authorities, ****s, Accademy and several bike shops. I found several at Amazon.com, but 'm holding out to see if I can find something local before I mail order.

    you might try Lowes, or the Home Depot for the knee pads they have several different styles.mostly used by flooring contractors, & installers. i don't know about the elbow pads.
