    29er riders do not use Gloves, the big wheels prevent wet slippery hands....

    Exactly! These are the only approved 29er gloves (to date) Note the titanium protective plates:

    The little silver things on the fingers pop out so you can display your knuckle tats
    Chasing bears through the woods drunk with a dull hatchet is strongly not advised

    29er skewers are absolutely necessary when using 29er wheels.
