Giro Zero CS gloves. Minimalist, no padding, just a thin microfiber palm patch. No straps. The pocket/pouch looking doodads on the middle and ring fingers are to help pull off the gloves. They're good. Just enough to protect the palms and knuckles from scrapes.

Didn't really need or want another pair of gloves but the LBS discounted the price on the hi-vis yellow set, so what the heck.

I needed gloves when I first resumed cycling in 2015, but now don't really need them for riding comfort on the road bike. Probably a combination of comfortable bar wrap, getting into better shape, and tweaking the bit fit so there's less weight on my hands. But now my old pair of padded gloves annoy me a little and don't feel quite right. I preferred my unpadded Bontrager Thermal RXL gloves most of the time.

Giro Zero CS minimalist gloves

Those are my favorite gloves. These ones are a huge improvement over the older style with a natural leather palm, because the dyes from the leather would bleed into your skin.

Is it just my imagination, but are more and more gloves coming out that no longer have the velcro tab. I just bought a similar style pair of Nalini's; not in this color scheme, but same model.

Finally got a pair of these to transport our bikes. No more trying to stuff two bikes in the back of a VW Golf.

Gloves might be a little more aero without the Velcro straps. That might matter to some cyclists. I just liked the Giro Zero CS because they were comfortable and didn't bind the web between my thumb and forefinger. And there's some protection from chafed skin.

Thanks. I've wanted this jersey since 2007, but just couldn't justify $100 for a gag jersey.

New kicks day! I took a chance and ordered a pair of Fizik R1B online for a stupid low price in my stupid tiny size, and they are perfect.

Does this count? No more front tire removal and struggling to get the seat of the 95 Civic coupe down and the bike wedged into the space.https://cimg9.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...1a5cadb08a.jpg

One way to get KOMs on Strava.. though easier to just take the computer off the bike and leave the bike at home.

Ordered from Hong Kong. Not sure how the sizing will work out, but figured why not give it a try?

Carbon sole, two Boa fasteners - what's not to like! I have narrow feet with very narrow heels and ankles - my last pair of (also very narrow) shoes was just a bit loose around the heel, but still a bit tight around the toes on long, hot rides. The front Boa lets the shoe wrap around your foot, and the back one can reduce the width of the heel. So far, comfy without heel slippage.

These were a random Amazon find. Unfortunately, there's a ton of variation in pricing, but sizes 37-48 are available. They appear to be available for $250 from the Fizik website in sizes 40-48.

Another cheap eBay pickup to turn the kid bus into part time event transportation vehicle. Can only fit so many bikes on the roof of my Volkswagen.
