Where can I get Lycra sleeves?

I need lycra sleeves that I can put on and take off separately of my shirts.

I'd prefer not to have to manufacture them myself as I'm not really a proficient tailor.

Thanks

You mean like these?



They're available at any local bike shop. Ask for "arm warmers."

Are you wearing these while racing or just while riding? Do you care how they look?

I took an old pair of tube socks and removed the stitches at the toe. You can't tell what they are from more than a few feet away, and they work great.

I do the same in winter with wool socks to keep my wrists warm if my coat slides up.
Ghetto riggers unite?

But yea, those things are nearly everywhere, call/browse around.
