I was rummaging around for some old gloves to take out in the snow today and came across these. I had a lot of use out of them in the past, but haven't had them out for years now. I have a very vivid memory of buying these in about 1994 from the bike shop in Bristol just off Queens road (I think it's still there). I remember I paid £17.99 for them a) because that was quite a lot of money in 1994, and b) because I was 14 and had no money anyway. Can't quite remember what possessed me to part with that much but I thought the design was cool. And who's to say it wasn't? Anyway over the years the gloves were worth it and more, I did so many rides as a kid wearing these and I don't once remember the wind getting through them. Made me smile finding them again :)

Agree 8) I use to make a bee line for Castelli clothing at the Freewheel clearance sales in Hendon bitd. They made some seriously funky gear.
