Waterproof glove liners. NBR

no gloves are waterproof except maybe full on rubber (except when water gets into them or your hands sweat…. always happens)
those atlas gloves are not warm at all
try leather ones with small thin wool liners (separate gloves…the leather ones breathe, the wool keeps you warm)
or watson makes thin white poly ones that work well too.
either way, you'll have to learn to not worry about wet hands and be happy with wet, warm hands!

(BTW….i have worked on concrete formwork for 15 years so far in all climates and these are the only solutions i have found. my hands are NEVER warm AND dry, except for the first five minutes of the day!!!! hahahahaha)

2008 Specialized SX Trail II

Beat them to it?

They (Devinci) has a great product, I love it, but I would not likely
consider them to be showing Specialized anything they haven't thought
of.

meh…..i'm just a convert.
after having the 05 sxtrail, its just so flimsy compared to the frantik due to the rear end.
they also really seem to have the specific uses nailed down with their line. and it just seems a lot sweeter to me
….just chuck d.'s opinionated 2cents….
hahahaha

2008 Specialized SX Trail II

it could use a 1.5" headtube, and 12x15mm spacing in the rear, they'd increase more customers.

hey….didn't devinci do that?
specialized got beat to the punch

Penticton only has a few resident rednecks.
We have many transient Albertican rednecks, though…. mostly in summer

Concrete finishers have been making up to $700 a day (Someone tell Digger).

Every day?!?
maybe if they own the placing company and have $$$ in equipement and at least four skilled guys working with them. One concrete finisher on his own (or formwork carpenter for that matter) is worth an hourly wage and not much more. Id say 25-35$ per hour. Not really getting rich.
At least here in Penticton.
As a journeyman tradesman, wages are a bit lower here than on the coast. The jobs are smaller, and the work is way more fragmented.

And the cost of living here is very nearly the same as on the coast for me. The savings in housing costs are taken up by way larger transportation costs. Nester's in
Summerland has higher prices than Nester's in Whistler!! I could hardly believe it. Gas…same price. Insurance…same price. You save here on the purchase price of a house, but if you rent, (if you can find a good permanent place) the price is the same as on the coast.

I do have a better lifestyle here, though…. Larger place, yard, spot for my RV, etc. Everyone's way more laid back here than on the coast.

I still kind of miss living in Van after 41/2 years here, though.
Many things the city has are not here.

The key is to just be happy where you are and stop looking at the grass across the fence!!!! hahahaha

sorry for the long rant
just wanted to share my experiences with youse.
