Like I said in the glasses thread, I don't get on my bike without gloves. I found out the hard way that skinned up palms sucks. 2 times now I've wiped out and lost skin on my hands. I can deal with a scraped knee, shoulder, whatever, but not having skin on your hands really sucks. You are reminded about it every time you try and use them.
Ditto that. I've been only wearing them when it is cold, but I think I'm going to start wearing them all the time.claire wrote:This thread makes me realize I'm one of the wussies then ... will not bike without wearing gloves.
I'm with you! I find my hands go numb if i ride too often without padding, so gloves all the time. Never actually had a bike crash that had my hands hitting the floor though...biohazardman wrote:Gloves with padding in the palm for me in the summer just mesh on the back. Winter requires different gloves depending on the weather 20-60 deg F sun ,rain, snow, ice ect. I seldom ride without them.
Motorcycle gloves will do just fine from any shop near you. Cycle Gear seems to be popular. I just wear regular bicycle gloves though. Not designed to resist full abrasion, but better than nothing and I already have it. Sad thing though is quality ones of both types will be the same price. Just that motorcycle gloves tend to be stiffer and it may not be as convenient carrying it around in a back pocket. I won't make recommendations b/c it depends on your riding situation.Trackman417 wrote:Speaking of gloves all these kinds of horror stories I'm hearing.... Where should I order a pair of gloves from??
