These, nice and thin as well as some 100% gloves

Really like my 100% gloves definitely. Thin and no bunching.

Same here. WTH hit me up with a pair because he has wee little hands and the ones he sent were xxl... traded him some cookies I think.
for winter I got a pair of fox gloves that are water resistant and wind resistant. A solid move for this winters rain fall...

Just because my hands aren't Ster size doesn't mean they are small ya dick!! lol

I don’t know, but I like the big Gypsy...

me too. i love his unbelievable footwork, his head movement and his timeless knowledge of how a big man is supposed to move and trap opponents. he's my idea of a lifelong boxer. and it shows against such a non traditional, clunky ass boxer like wilder. watch any fight minutes of a wilder fight and all i see is a deer trying to cross an icy pond. his feet splay so far apart and his style is so......uninspired, its a mystery that he would be 40-0 with 39 knockouts.
until you get to see the right hand of god.
and then it all makes sense. deontay wilder started boxing around like 19 years old and was an olympic medallist two years later. because his right arm has been gifted down from some kind of cruel deity who wanted to see exorcisms every time deontay steps in the ring.
watch the luis ortiz wilder fight and you will become a believer. or just watch his knockout highlight reel and you will drop fifty on him tomorrow as well.

i cannot wait for this fight.

Holy crap!
Just watched that Darkfest vid on the front page.

Feeling a bit of motion sickness watching that!

That is a version of mountain biking that I am unable to wrap my head around. Amazing talent.

Find me a pair that's tight, thin and doesn't bunch up in your palm and I might change preferences. But in my dirt biking days I would get throttle blisters on my right palm, and that would compromise post ride......self congratulatory behaviour.

I ride the Giro DND. They're pretty low cost (on sale for like $18 right now). They fit well... bit on the small side if you order a set. I've never had any bunching. They breath great so I actually have less sweat than going gloveless. They'll hold up to a few minor spills but any major spills you're be looking to replace them. Not the most durable glove in the world. But it's a lightweight glove so I wouldn't expect it. I honestly buy like 3 pairs at a time because it's a great glove for when my buddy goes.... damn I don't have gloves. I usually keep a pair in the office and a pair in the car.

For harder rides I run the Remedy X2. Little more padding. Helps with protecting my bad hand so I actually ride those a lot more often than I used to. Glad I wore them yesterday because I slapped a tree pretty good.

Fly Racing shorts? from where? we dont get much here locally. Leatt has limited sizing. Fox has sizing, but I am looking for a slightly longer shorts which sits on the knee cap or even 3/4

Jenson had them on sale for 48$ I believe and the RC’s were 100$ so for 148$ I got shorts and shoesies for 2 bucks less than the fivetenz... figured it was worth a shot since all my shorts now have holes in the butt lol

I like Zoic ride shorts with no diaper insert. You can buy with or without the Chamios. I have no need for that sh*t, I haz leather taint. It's hard and stinks like jerky! lol

Anyway, they come in different leg lengths, have adjustment straps on the sides and a little elastic in the back too. Best fitting short ever. Great for us big ass Canadians who usual have a 5-10lb swing over the winter season.

I liked the DND at first but over a short period of time they started bunching up. Could be a sizing issue though

I too was insomnia shopping last night! Scored a travel bag/suitcase thing for flying with your bike off CRC for $150. Was like half price...

Just had a job interview for the first time in a decade... figured it was time to get back to work instead of getting fat vacationing after 14 months. Had those old first day of school nerves going and woke up at like 3am and couldn't go back to sleep.

I have three pairs of those shorts, great riding short and you can regularly find them on sale. And I love that you can buy them with or without chamois so you don't have to pony up extra money just to replace a pair of shorts that get ripped or switch up colors.

Yep, I likely them a lot.

Yeah, across the bridge in Panama City proper. Trade in my old multi hour So Cal commutes for a 30 minute drive along the waterfront.

Well good luck, that was my exact thing, many applications...had a phone thing today after a vid/phone thing yesterday... nerves. Then they had to move it to Monday. Job searching in this day and age is a real pain. Very little face to face first impressions, you are literally data flying through the interbreeze commingling with the porn and youtube lego build vids.

Same thing here, I had two phone interviews before this face to face interview.

Good luck on Monday!

Good luck indeed ! I have been with the same employer for 37 years, could not imagine the job searching process these days, and the nerves . . . I'd probably shit myself :-/
