The following question, while not addressing the concerns about price and warmth, asks the same as in the heading: How to choose protective cycling gloves?

comment Front suspension or full suspension mountain bike
How does this answer the question? As far as I understand, you are saying that some professional riders use full suspension bikes. Well, of course! I guess most DH racers use a full suspension bike.

comment Mountain biking: How to ride in mud?
There's mud and mud. The clay in low, arable lands is often so sticky, that pushing the bike is not an option. And if you try to ride, got mud all over, and try to carry, you might end with a 30kg bike.

comment Need to know the wrench size for 10.9 screw
A mechanic once told me this number is maximum torque in Nm and the higher it is, the higher quality the bolt is.

comment Mechanic says not to use top three/bottom two gears or the chain will throw
@EsotericScreenName, I began wondering if really cross-chaining hurts and decided to quote the manufacturer. To be honest, I was living with the assumption that cross-chaining is a major evil. Btw recently I learned that running disc brakes with worn out pads could be no problem at all - a friend wore his brake pads so much, that the pistons of the caliper were grabbing the disk, and yet the pistons and the disk are OK.

comment Mechanic says not to use top three/bottom two gears or the chain will throw
Why is a twice incorrect (1. triple, not double 2. legacy advice) answer voted top? Here's what Shimano has to say : When the chain is in the position shown in the illustration, the chain may contact the front chainrings or front derailleur and generate noise. If the noise is a problem, shift the chain onto the next-larger rear sprocket or the one after. link

comment Can I change my large chainring without changing the entire crank?
I am not able to locate any documentation on that FD, here the closest I came across. That's why in my first paragraph, I say probably.
