    I'm with your buddy on the short ankle socks...could be Lance's biggest sin!
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    I suspect there's logic behind the madness, but I'm too dumb to see it.

    if someone rips it generally negates any gaperism.
    in fact i love seeing when people judge someone like that and then they blow everyone away

    caring what other riders look like is the height of gaperism.

    Fingerless are almost as slick as gloveless when the hands get all schweaty.
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

    Clearly won’t work for the ‘Gram. You need a proper set of open fingered gloves for that.

    For sure. I even prefer full finger on the road bike for that reason.

    I just remember the fingerless gloves would turn inside out when you pulled them off, this was circa 1989 or so. I just go with cheap 'Mechanix' gloves from Lowes, way cheaper then bike branded yet still designed to be tactile for working on car engines or whatever.

    And what is the point of shaving my legs if Im not wearing ankle socks??!!

    Or when you get a branch jammed in under your fingernail when you're ripping a downhill

    I want fingerless so I don't have to go through the hassle when I want to take a picture or deal with maps, I hardly ever take pics because it's a hassle. Other than that I have ZERO desire to wear fingerless ever again even when I ride pavement.
