Alpine advice.

So i have just been in alpine getting some new gloves. For some odd reason, i seem to be liking less palm padding these days. Also stocked up the jelly belly pile.

They recounted a story of a tyre exploding off the rim with a burst bead a few weeks ago. Sealant everywhere...and also a foobared rim. Went home and checked my front rim, and sure enough a wiggle is plain to see. Gah!

Aye Badger - you do get a bit excited about rims...

If you like less padding I can heartily recommend the Specialized body geometry gloves. Not too much padding but it is in just the right place. No other glove delays the loss of feeling in my little fingers so much. As always, YMMV.
