Wow, I’m amazed And thankful with the responses on my dumb questions,
so I got a trek rosco 8 on order, got a tailgate pad, riding my city cruiser daily to get my legs and lungs ready. Now I’m in search of protection,
1)what’s a good helmet? I was looking at the bontregger (spelling?) at my local shop
2) I like riding in shorts but was thinking the Fox shin/knee sleeves for abrasion protection, good choice??
3) Same fox elbow forearm sleeves for arms. Good choice??
4) motocross style gloves or is there a difference with mtb gloves?

Those are good stuff. It’s a matter of good fitment. MTB gloves are good.

All the big names make good helmets- it’s a liability otherwise, fit is everything.
Knee/elbow pads are a comfort issue also, but some stay up better than others. This is based partly on your body makeup. Fox or 611, once again all the big names make good products- COMFORT!
Gloves, less is more! If you don’t already have a pair of moto gloves sitting around, buy MTB gloves.
Good luck and enjoy your new bike!!!
