Tricky fit, sticky liner

These are solid gloves, with some caveats:
1) As mentioned, the liner tends to pull out when you remove your hand. Even if you're careful, one of the interior fingers can pull into the palm and be hard to get back into place. Kind of embarrassing when you're always the last person back on the bike b/c you're fiddling with your gloves.
2) The gloves do run a bit small, with one important note: these are contoured gloves, so they are cut for a gripping position, like you have when your hands are on the bar. What this means is that if they fit when your hand is in them, they might not fit when you extend your fingers straight, like when you are grabbing a brake lever. Fit testing tip: put one glove on, then (with your other hand) push the glove towards your hand in between your thumb and pointer finger, now, try to extend your fingers like you're shifting. (Kind of like in the picture, where I'm using a hood instead of the finger.) For me, the gloves felt great until I tried to reach out to shift...
