Full finger gloves or short finger gloves?
http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...+Glove+04.aspx I own a pair of these and they're nice except they were a bit too big for me and I preferred fullfingered gloves.
12 dollars? Here they're 45 euros.

Size Guidelines: Measure around the fullest part of your hand, not including the thumb.

Small: 8"
Medium: 9"
Large: 10"
Extra-Large: 11"

Got that from JensonUSA. I'd say go to your LBS and try them on. FYI, I'm 13 and have average size hands and I wear size S Fox Sidewinders and they're perfect.

I think I'll order them today, and they come in small which it looks like I need using the guide at the bottom.

Well I was at a Target store (store in the US) picked up some birthday cards, and I tried some Schwinn medium.. short finger gloves on but they were a little big they didn't have any in small. So I figure I need small ones.

I find my Thor MX glove are awesome, kevlar tipped fingers, and double padded palms, they work very nice, and I don't mind if my hands sweat a bit when it gets into the hotter weather.

I love mine too. The good thing is you only realise your hands are sweating when you take the gloves off so remember guys - Fox Sidewinders are great, just don't take them off 'till the end of the ride.

I paid $13 for Answer Accelerator gloves, full finger. They're pretty nice for the price.

True, true. There is a Spanish eBay. But right now I'm more than happy with my current gloves.

EDIT: By the way, did you order the gloves yet, Tweek?
