I was just watching Road Fools 14 and noticed Corey Martinez wearing gloves. He doesn't now, but any street guys out there wear gloves? I can't ride without them. My hands just sweat too much. I wear two gloves when I golf and have to change my guitar strings more than anyone I know. It's a curse..

So ?
Just ride with gloves if you love (or need) them.

I personnaly don't like riding with gloves but I still have a pair to keep riding when my hands are too much rough and fucked up, riding a few sessions sweating inside the gloves fix my hands so I can ride without them again.

Some people swear by gloves and love the feeling, to me it just feels nearly as weird as riding a bike with ski boots.

I do love, and need, them.

I go through phases. Sometimes I will ONLY run em, other times I don't. Seems to depend on weather-if cooler, gloves are common. If warm, I don't run em. Usually with dirt I run them though-in case I dump it. Saves my hands.

No gloves here. My hands are very calloused and I do sweat but it doesn't bother me. Don't like feel of them and never have

I've never liked gloves either. If my hands get sweaty, I find some dry dirt, or dust, or whatever, and rub it into my hands to absorb the sweat

I rock gloves for protection, sweat mitigation in the hotter months, and warmth in the cooler months.

I have 2 pairs and carry 1 at all times. Mainly for dirt which is about to sound weird.

Tip: If your not a fan of them try this. If you get sweaty hands. Look for any dirt on the ground and rub a bit of it on your hands and if really bad, grips. Sand or sandy dirt work best, never use the dirt around plants or that real moist type. It will probably make it worse. Also, some bowling talcum power that comes in the little bags is amazing. Sidewalk chalk is great too.

The tip is why I said weird, wear them on dirt yet use dirt to keep your hands dryer.

I ride with gloves because I just can't ride without them, and my hand sweat alot and then my hands just slide on my grips... and it also helps when you fall so you don't scrape your hands...

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

Depends on what I'm riding. If it's smooth skatepark surface I normally dont, but I do when I ride rougher surfaces like street.

Honestly my hands sweat like hell and I get so many blisters it's insane. I don't want to ride them because I feel like I'd be called a pussy all the time but I'm considering getting some. Blisters hurt like hell when u ride and in Florida especially now that it's super humid my hands sweat a lot.

I like gloves. My hands sweat like a motherfucker and I can't ride without them. OP I go through guitar and bass strings like it's going out of style too. Expensive and annoying.

Your signature is grammatically incorrect, and it makes me smile.

'My gay what?'

"Huh?

'My gay what? I don't get it.'

HA!

Maybe it's intentional, like people getting ironic tattoos that say "no regerts"

Although homophobia isn't cool. Where someone likes to put their willy doesn't define them as a person.

I never wear gloves except in the dead of winter to keep frostbite away. (I do ride BMX in the winter if there is no snow. I prefer it b/c the parks are empty. All mine!) I was a line cook for 15 years so my hands are one big callous from getting burned all the time. My hands literally do not sweat. I play bass, and I have strings that are 5 years old on one, 2 on the other, b/c my hands don't sweat.

Personally i need to wear gloves. There's been too many times where i've gone to barspin, caught the grip but my hand slips off.

I even fell off the back of my bike when i pulled up to do a frickin manual !! my hands just came right off haha.

So i need them, at least whilst the weathers humid.

Tried it once and my hand got stuck on a barspin. Fuck gloves plus they do look kinda wack.

But if they work for you dope

I'd lose the gloves if I could. I sweat through them anyways and will sometimes cause throttle grip. It's awful.

throttle grip from the sweaty gloves does my head in, i'll have a 30 minute session and spend more time wiping my bars down with my already sweaty jumper than i would riding !!
