    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."

    Oh, minor detail, I need them for warm weather.

    (if that makes a difference)

    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.
    You've got a bike, so you gotta move.
