Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Outlast any bike-specific glove I've ever used.

Valeo Weightlifting gloves, because I already had them when I started riding, and I haven't found anything yet that feels any better at any price.

i have some valeo weight lifting gloves. they're great when you don't need fingers.
if you need fingers:

pow ozone pipe gloves

leather palm and fingers, mesh poly sueded upper that breathes but is tough and absorbant.

ten bucks on sale after snow season and they're great.

Pryme Have a Nice Day gloves; ironically my wife saw these before I did and had them shipped to me as a surprise. I used to wear mechanix gloves before these.



EDIT: only for those cold days; where I usually wear a ninja like mouth mask as well.

I rock the Izumi Select gloves in warm weather. Warm weather to me is 60 degrees and up.


I am all about cloth tape and these guys give me a little bit of padding. And next time I eat ****, at least my palms won't get scratched up.

I have had a pair of string back retro gloves for about 20 years.
Never seen the need to get a new yet.
