a few thoughts though
wont the rubber branding come off (my sombrios did :cry: )
they look like they might wear fast :?

anyway

and the knog ride hard gloves are very nice but a bit expensive for me :(

Lidl are doing full fingered bike gloves for £4.99 and in different colours. Cheap, but that's what you want?

BTW: People have recommended the Mechanix gloves to me before for bikes. Just get over the Mechanix written on it, and you'll be ok lol. (You don't have to get 100 as that link show's!

Here are some in 'medium' :-) (My hands are not that big) - Also Mechanix gloves are pretty much 'throw-away', hence why you should really buy them in bulk.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/100-NEW-Authenic- ... 256166d3ea

If you end up getting those (or some in 'camo' colour), I'll buy half of them off you :-)

*** EDIT *** WAIT! IT's not a 100 pack as I thought it was, it's meant to say 100% NEW lol. D'oh. I'm sure I've seen a multipack link before though... I'll try and find it.

I'll pop into Lidl on the way home (Yes, I'm cycling home tonight), they normally start the cycle thing early. If the fingerless gloves are anything to go by, they are not gonna be that good quality though (i.e. not good for mountain biking). I will take a look.
