#6487

#6488

Classic everything about cycling. I’ll need this expensive piece of equipment (I’ll never need this expensive piece of equipment)


#6489

urgh I’m so annoyed I’ve lost it because I just cba getting a new one


#6490

Had a lovely couple of days cycling to the middle of fucking nowhere (Moira??) and back. Decided I need some cycling gloves though (not winter gloves). Any recommendations?


#6491

Mitts? Or just like thin gloves?

I just use Decathlon mitts (or whatever’s like a fiver because anything will do).

Defeet’s Duraglove for when I need something warmer. I did have these but both pairs I had developed holes: http://galibier.cc/product/roubaix-vision-iii-gloves/


#6492

Gloves. As thin as possible without falling apart quickly I guess.


#6493

i’ve got some lightweight dhb gloves which are quite good (although i hardly ever wear them as i mostly don’t like wearing gloves) but they seem virtually impossible to get hold of now, unless you have tiny, tiny child’s hands :confused:

#6494

#6495

Best season


#6498

enjoy:

feeling smug
cold and bright mornings
bringing out the winter clothes
hot beverage in a warm cafe mid or post-ride
that one commute a year when it snows and you decide, stupidly, to cycle to work

don’t enjoy:
ice
cleaning yr bike after every ride
getting filthy


#6499

In autumn (winter I)???


#6500

i just see cycling as having two seasons really:

cold
hot

:hushed:
