Just keep it rubber side down. ;)

It does hurt when you get it wrong though. But them's the breaks. :)

Hands are a bad place to get dirty cuts, and there are loads of nerve endings to damage.

If I was only allowed to cover 3 body areas riding it would be head, hands and feet.

Mediums are the right width for my (skinny) hands, but fingers too short. Look well constructed tho.

Troy won. Supported LBS too, sorry about the colour tho, it's the only pair they had left.
So Troy will make me faster, right?
