I'm pro glove.

I wear full fingered ones on long rides but lately I've been going naked on my commute. The pair I use have grippy rubber on the finger tips, gives a nice feeling over the smooth levers.

Also has a soft patch for snot. Which has been used lots lately cause of the flying-eye-gouging-cotton-fluff around now.

+1 for the sweat section. Fingerless gloves for me.

Using cycling gloves are for:
1) comfort - usually fingerless until
It gets too cold to wear them
2) protection - when you go down
3) style - to match your kit

I always wear them. Kind of like wearing a helmet

chunk_stir - Serous question but do you race? I get the impression you do and/or you hang out with people who do. You seem to have some fancy toys!

Any recommendations on whether to keep the SPD pedals and get shoes w/ SPD cleats, or go right to the SPD-SL combo? I've never used any kind of clip-in pedals and am just getting into cycling.
Fuck SPD-SL and just some Speedplays. Ask Alphamale!

I'm almost certain that no one here (hopefully) will go to great lengths to cheat themselves when uploading strava rides... But here's a link to ... cheat strava. LOL

Basically upload your tcx file, epo-boost your ride, and claim those KOM's hahahaha

Ya, funny that you should ask. I do race actually....






... my friends to the next signpost!


Seriously, no, never raced. I just have been riding a long time and enjoy riding (and talking about it). Over the years, been able to trade up my gear. I need all the help I can get!

Yeah, right. You're probably one of those Cat 1 guys who hang out with TNA/Todd's Racing haha

Aaaaaaaaaaaanyway...

bcrdukes, I got my shipment from Probikekit. Your right the Chamois is a little weird. I picked up the Bib tights, and two of their jerseys. The jersey's are quite fitted, I maybe should have gone for an XL, but I will survive. I'm not sure I'm such a fan of the Jersey material though. Very "Scratchy". I'm hoping this softens up through the wash, or after a couple wears. I'll be keeping the whole shipment.

I got nailed with 20 bucks in duty, did you?
