IMO, meh, but I prefer full fingered gloves. Despite my meh, I am sure they are nice gloves and will sell.

Hmm, Rivendell's been selling crotcheted gloves for a long time. Right now they're $24.

When I bought the grand record these were in the handlebar bag which had parfanalia from 1982. Not sure if they are really from 82 but they were pretty cheap.

Said handlebar bag.

Bonus items that work out are one of the coolest parts of this whole C+V nonsense.

Yup! When I bought my Competizione a few years ago, these were tagging along. I use these gloves and love them.




Public Bikes sells a similar set:

Many of the bikes, frames etc I have bought were moved into the win column by bonus items, Silca pumps, tools, extra parts, etc.

Then there are the ones you buy because you wanted them bad enough, initially thought you maybe paid too much.

And you find out a part that you liked, helped with the buy but didn't know it alone was worth the POA.

Pumps and cyclo computers are both cool bonuses.

Raleigh Rampar brand had bright white gloves.
perfect with Fresh white handlebar tape.
kept a pair for race only use.

I'd like to purchase a pair, they look really nice, but I prefer gloves with a snap closure. Velcro just gives up the ghost after a while. Anyone know if it would be a cinch to add a snap to the glove? I've no experience with this sorta thing.

Could be easy enough with a good leather hole punch and snap kit, shoe repair might be the best workaround.

I don't have a single glove or pair that the velcro has given up on, several going on 10 yo.

Actually, if you look at the pic of the single black glove, there's a bulge at the end of the strap; it may have a snap. It's certainly worth asking PDW.

They look great, love the brown, but I'd worry about the seams on the palms digging in.

PS The backs are crocheted, not knitted.

My experience over the years with the "hook and loop" fasteners has varied quite a bit. Like you I've had velcro that lasted practically forever. And I've had "velcro" that barely lasted a couple of dozen opening and closing cycles. My pet theory is that the real stuff, velcro TM is a quality product that will outlive the life of the product it is attached to. The other stuff is some cheap knock-off not worth the plastic it is made from.

I've been buying the wrong ones then

Maybe I'll try these, it's been probably 5 years since the last pair!

Only question, is the palm area thin? I'm not a fan of padded gloves.

The only thing is I have not really been able to tell the good stuff from the knock off stuff. But generally name brand products will use the good stuff.

Public Bikes sells a similar set:

ordered two pair from public bikes, 2 work days and no report of ship but did receive five emails to look at other stuff and like them on social media. This place is my extent of social media.

after the gloves arrive I will tell them to cease e-mail. Just get the product out, ditch the constant contact.

Hard to say about the palms, maybe ping them online or call and have a chat.

I had an uneventful experience with Public a couple of years ago when I bought some incidentals, like bar tape and a kickstand. It could be that much has changed since then. I still get emails from them, but nothing egregious.
