I usually use gloves. I do lots of wheelies and it hurts my hands with out them, So I guess it depends on what you are riding. ( BMX, Racing ). Its really up to you if you think you need gloves. Good point ^^^

I'm in the gloved crowd. Every time I ride I have gloves on.

During the Summer I sweat and will slip off the grips.

During the Winter it's just to darn cold to ride without hang protection.

I think most gloves are pretty similar in quality as long as you are in the $20.00+ price range (unless they are on sale). I've seen gloves marked down from 30 bucks to 15 or 10 bucks and usually buy a couple of pairs. I do not notice much, if any, difference in quality on the 'sale' products. I think they are just old stock that is trying to get moved out the door.

yea my gloves were like 15 marked down from 35 there really good quality and they get comfortable after about a week or so

Gloves are just part of the equipment, at least in mountain biking.
Mine came in extremely helpful just last week when i flew right across
the handle bars and slid like 4 feet palms down in the gravel, i got up
and scraped the gravel which would have been stuck in my hand off
the gloves, then as any mountain biker would tell you, you look for
blood...which i was able to find on my knee....just enuff to brag about!
Sounds crazy....but thats the sport! Wear gloves!
