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)

What gloves do you wear?

I love gloves for cold weather and have 5 pairs for different temps/weather

Pearl Izumi Impact full finger gloves with no padding for coolish days and for mtb no matter how hot.

Pearl Izumi Thermal Lite for temps down to 45ish

Specialized Radiant for temps down to about 20

Cheap waterproof ski gloves for wet rides around 20 degrees

And the crem de le crem
Marmot Hut Tour gloves for anything colder than that and wet and serious.

What are you wearing to stay warm?

I wear 2 of them when its really cold with the 2nd pair fingers cut off.

When it gets really really cold I have izumi lobster gloves, but they are usually too warm.

Might get something for in between this year. But $2 stretch gloves are what I mostly wear.

I wear these down to mid 40's, and then after that I put on a pair of these over top. Takes me down close to mid 20's to 30's for not too long. I'm not a huge fan of being on the bike when its that cold anyway.

What a nice little gLove fest question. Some $10 Castellis no matter what the temp, and I usually end up taking them off mid-ride. L.A. doesn't get that cold.

I have a pair of these. After about a year they are starting to fall apart plus they're overpriced just like everything else from cadence. Look cool though.

'grease monkey' car mechanic gloves, $10 and done. I wear them 45 and below. Otherwise typical cycling gloves.

Like no wai. I have a large pair and my finger tips bottom out the glove tips when worn. This very fact made me check the tag again if they were sqrl sized when I first got them.
