Contest! Six reasons why cyclists wear goofy gloves

Here's a funny little article: Six reasons why cyclists wear their funny little gloves.

1. Improved grip and control
2. Comfort and Protection for Your Skin
3. Shock Absorption
4. Warmth
5. Protection in Case of a Crash
6. Style

I have to say that--aside from the really obvious one here (#4, to keep your hands warm when it's cold, duh)-- there is really only ONE reason to ever wear gloves on a road bike, and it's not on this list.

Can you guess what it is? And if you can, can you suggest an alternative for the gloveless rider?

If you can guess by 5 p.m. central, you'll win a FREE Pinch Flat tee-shirt (as soon as we get around to printing them)!

Send your answers to pinchflatnews (at) gmail (dot) com, I'll report winners at 5 p.m. sharp!

Eric and Derek both independently guessed "for wiping your nose."

True enough, gloves are good for that.. at least for the first two or three wipes.

But that's not the answer I'm looking for! Keep trying, ladies and gents!
