Glen, interesting, especially the lifetime warranty on wheel truing. Needed this too often on my bike which carries shopping, then combine with rough road surface! My rear wheel is now double butted and has extra spokes.
Gloves. I've ripped a pair of gloves last time I came off. My hands were fine though. So, gloves.
Anyone who says you don't need them on a bike try hitting the road at 40kph.
Rather have the tan lines. :-)
Its not really nice to go and tell people what they should and shouldn't be doing.
We are all adults here and capable of deciding on a course of action and accepting the consequences.
Oh I dont know! Could save your lively hood one day!
Silly discussion, it highlights the weirdness amongst aussie cyclists.
It wouldn't be so bad If the discussion title was specific about "training or racing without gloves"
Other cultures simply just ride bikes.
Other cultures or cyclists?
Many cyclists in other countries are far more fanatical about cycling as we are here.
The only silly discussion is the one never had, bit like a silly question.
It has nothing to do with being fanatical.
Active transport is supposed to be a normal everyday activity. People are supposed to get dressed in normal clothes, jump on their bikes and ride. No gloves, no lycra, etc. If you want to wear gloves that's fine.
Next we'll be having digs at knife and forkists for not wearing bibs.
You mean you don't wear a bib at the table - Shock, Horror - I must start a petition to get this made law
Yeah, whats with the No bibs?
Ever been to authentic Marinara nights?
No gloves, no helmet - at least, falling on his face he didn't break the hip flask of scotch :)
