    So when do you retire your gloves

    Should I do it - I think the only thing holding these together is the dirt and grease...

    No matter where your at... There you are... Δf:=f(1/2)-f(-1/2)

    Mine usually take on a life of their own, kind of like Thing from Adams Family. When they give me the finger, they're out of here.

    ...Swiss cheese? That's perfume compared to any of my cycling gear, none of which is close to retirement!

    I retired my first pair of cyclng gloves from the 70's a couple of years ago, when they started falling apart. Fortunately I was able to find some NOS 70's gloves for replacement, gloves, so I bought 2 pair. First pair now looking & smelling a little disreputable, but still going strong.

    My winter riding gloves were mostly duct tape when I replaced them.

    The above comment is entirely my delusional ramblings, and not those of my family, friends, past and future employers, the Academy of Motion Pictures, or any of my other personalities.

    When gloves are French and you can't match the threads.
    Real cyclists use toe clips.

    I've tried them over the years, none seem to work. If it's cold, I wear knit gloves.
