Glove update! lol.

OK... so I got a white/black pair. They are worth the £4.99, but are only single stitching, so not sure how long they would hold up. They are better quality than my fingerless pair, although they don't have a sweat pad on them for wiping your brow (if you care about that at all).

Pretty good for the money I think, although I don't think the finger stitching inside would be very comfortable if you prefer a snug fit with gloves. Definately worth a purchase though I reckon :-)

Also.. I got the glasses that are there, seem pretty good quality for £7.99.

Bought some nice Bontrager ones for about £20 notes a few weeks ago. Not cool but comfy and good quality.

These ones, quite impressed with them:

Bought them because of numb hands on the Dalby red/black route, which is like riding 39k of cobble stones at the minute.

If I was just after just good quality glove's for a reasonable price, I'd be looking at the Madison Trail or Madison Trail XC. They can be picked up for around £14 if you look around.

EDIT: Oooo.. those Bontrager look REALLLLLY nice !

If you want cheap, I bought full finger gloves in local Agricultural
hardware store. They are called work gloves but they are near
identical to my old GT gloves (which were £28) just without a logo.
I've seen them in other hardware places as well.

They are about £10 and you can have full finger or cut off.
Absolutely brilliant. You can have any colour you like as long as its orange
but you can be seen a mile off in them (go pretty well with my orange hi
vis cycle jacket).

The logo says 'HR'
