Ultimately, I"m probably going to break down and just start manufacturing stuff here myself, like dave smith of factory five (in my opinion, the Factory five article is the best one on the site).
grasp of reality!

I actually love the street performers. The creative class is what breathes culture into cities such as Paris, London, New Orleans, and New York. IMO they're one of the factors that makes us a world class city as opposed to other merely large cities such as Dallas, or Phoenix.

+1 .. when i lived in rockaway beach and had to take the A train to midtown it was the performers that made that piss soaked ride bearable. from the acrobats to the musicians to the bible thumping sermons to the lady that for years used to ask for change and never once bothered to change her story of "my husband and I lost our jobs LAST WEEK" .. now living upstate all there is are the pretentious fucktards that infest new paltz and woodstock (though if you look hard enough theres some really good talent there too) ... hmmm in someways i miss the a train ...

on a side note has anyone here had any experience with dealing with Gerbings ... my right glove was um .. less then warm this morning

Yep, one of my gloves went south and I sent it in for repair and they sent me a brand new set of G3 gloves.

I called them at 866-371-4328, get an RMA # and wait a week or two. Great customer service!!

Do I need a receipt? Its long gone I've had the gloves a little over a year, but i'm pretty sure i can still muster up a credit card statement with that purchase on it.

Nope, just give them your info. I purchased mine 4 years ago and didn't need a receipt. Their stuff has lifetime warranty (electrics).

Yeah and those of us that put in a hard day of work don't want to hear a Russian folk concerto on a poorly tuned violin at 170db's when trying to get home. PS I haven't had my window attempted to be "washed" since 1992.

That's the idea, but an issue at work had me on the train for the last couple of days. Don't worry though, there are plenty of other assholes who can't drive, and don't look where they're walking for me to enjoy.

Glad to hear it. I'll give them a shot as well. My Union Ridge pants stopped working.

That happened to me a couple times. According to Gerbing, the problem is almost always the connector. Specifically, the point in the wire right before the plug. If your wire seems very "limp" right at that point, it may be because the wire broke inside the insulation. Just replace it with a new connector, and you'll be good as gold.

Gerbing asked if I wanted to send in my gloves or do it myself. It took me 10 minutes to fix, as opposed to weeks waiting for the glove to be returned. FYI, this repair will NOT void your warranty, accordint to the Gerbing rep i talked to.

FYI: if you intend to fix it yourself, note that one side of the insulation is "ribbed". This differentiates positive from ground. Just match the wires on the new connector.

Hey Jesse,

Did Eddie give you my gloves? Let me know and I'll stop by on my way home today.

Thanks.
