Adaptive Cycling: Handcycles, Amputee Adaptation, Visual Impairment, and Other Needs Have a need for adaptive equipment to ride to compensate for a disability or loss of limb or function? This area is for discussion among those of us in the cycling world that are coming back from traumatic circumstances and tell the world, "No, you are not going to beat me down!"

Do you need gloves for co2 inflator?

I saw a video and co2 gets you cold. Do you use gloves?

No, mine have a red foam sleeve that fits over the cartridge. I got mine from MEC years ago. It looks like this WalMArt one but the sleeve on mine is red not black.

Or... if you ride with gloves, a non-issue.

...The sleeve is great, if you have it.

I've never used anything other than the glove I wear while riding.

My guess (and I can't speak for the OP) is that they got here by accident, just like me right now. I thought I was in the General Cycling forum when I ran into this thread. The problem is (at least if you're using Firefox browser), the pages on this site jump a inch or two up to a few times every time it loads. And even when I am specifically clicking on the "General" forum, the page jump winds up causing the click to come in here.
