    They're a completely useless pad that rests against the flange of your grip. Basically, they're for the ******* that can't handle getting callouses on their thumbs.

    Only when it's very cold out, or when my grips are wet and slippery.

    Donuts complete your old school ride. Other than that, they're worthless. And yes, I wear gloves even when I'm not racing, as my grips seem to get a bit slippery after a while. Some 661 full finger or Fox 1/2 finger.

    I used to wear gloves all the time.. stopped riding for a few months and now that I'm back into it, I just havent gotten a new pair and I realized I dont need them.. then again I seem to sweat alot less than I did back then. I will get a pair for the winter months though.
