    Leather cycling gloves . . .$1!???

    Got some dental floss from one of the dollar stores in town . . . looked around. Found leather cycling gloves (padded, mesh top) in either black or white real leather (!), make in Pakistan, for the incredible price of $1 a pair! Used them on today's tandem toot and they are as good as anything else out there at 20 times the price!

    At that price you could have picked up a pair for all of us

    I bought some of those at the flea market a while back. They were okay except for the part where my hands turned kind of black everywhere the gloves touched them. I still have them in my spare glove drawer, all the way on the bottom of the pile.
