Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Arm warmers - any deals out there right now?

Looking for a good pair of arm warmers that will provide some protection this winter. Any good deals out there?

Go with leg warmers or tights?

My girlfriend made me a set of (pure) cashmere arm warmers from a thrift store sweater. They cost somewhere in the $5 range to produce, and blow the socks off the ones LBS has for $50 a pair.

Probikekit.com had a pair for $10 last week on sale. Free shipping anywhere in the world (or at least the US).

The Nashbar arm warmers are about $10 ($15 for their leg warmers). They're not fleece lined, so they wont be quite as warm, but I think they're perfect for that 45-50 range.

Arm warmers aren't that much to begin with, so also consider the weight material you need for your climate and not just the best deal.

This below is some brilliant re-purposing of an item. Well done.

Just ordered some smartwool ones from Performance for like $16 (they had them on sale plus %20 off). Don't have them yet so can't comment.

Where do you live? I'll go with knee warmers down to low 40's but then go with full leg warmers under bib shorts down to the high 20's.
