    Can anyone recommend any open fingered road gloves with plenty of padding as my hands get pins and needles on longish rides. Cheers.

    Specialized BG Gel Mitts. Plus look at thicker bar tape like the Specialized Roubaix stuff.

    Specialized advert now over!

    I don't find the Specialized ones any good on a road bike - great on a mountain bike but if you spend most of the time on the hoods the padding is in the wrong place.

    Could be - I use the BG comp & +4 them, but then I hardly ever ride on the hoods.
     
  10. + again for the BG comp... I have a pair with the red backs - I find them a bit more comfy than the black ones (gel?) that cost a few squids more:wacko: but that's probably just me...
