#1. How do you keep sweat out of your eyes? I wear sun glasses and a helmet, and even when it isn't 90+ degrees out, I am working hard enough to sweat a lot. The inside of my helmet has a little padding that looks like it should absorb some sweat, but after those 5 drops, what do I do? I don't want to have to put on a bandana and the helmet and the sun glasses, but when the salt from the sweat gets into the eyes, I have a problem.
#2. Do they make a bike short that doesn't have a SUPER HEAVY DUTY MAXI PAD in it for the "taint" pad? I have the Aerotech Designs bike shorts for the 36-38 waist, and the pad inside is twice as wide as the widest part of my seat. I really don't use over 1/2 of the taint pad that is there, and almost zero percent of the pad for the "butt" area. I ride a road only bike and maybe because I am in the forward position most of the time, I need to look at a different design of bike shorts.
#3. What do you look for in bike gloves? I am thinking of cutting the ends off of some of my "mechanics" gloves that I have worn out the finger tips on and trying that, if there isn't a special glove for biking that make some sense.
Any help to any of the questions would be greatly appreciated.
