I forgot about these



Perusing the interweb lastnight brought back my memory of these.

The Mechanix Original

The original bad boy glove that you had to have when I was a young boy racing downhill.
I however owned a pair of Fox gloves that I saved up for and had managed to grip from my nearest motocross store which was like 15 miles away in Brownhills. This of course was a long time before I had even been on the internet never mind Internet shopping, so I had to make do with what I could get… the Fox’s.

These Mechanix gloves originally released in the 90s for motocross mechanics to wear whilst tinkering with engines and brake fluid look as good now as they did over 10 years ago on the hands of my favourite riders.

Available in a rainbow of colours for approx £20.
Get them here amongst others.

As they have been around for a while and I love a bit of history I am gripping a set for the summer for sure.

At last, my gripping aparatus will be satisfied that finally they will get to feel the goodness that is a set of Mechanix originals!
