I just got married 2 weeks ago and just got back from the honeymoon. I am so anxious to get on my bike but was wondering if most people ride with their rings on or take them off? Not sure if its a safety issue or anything else. I take it off to surf so I dont lose it, was wondering if I should take it off to ride too.
I figured it wouldn't go anywhere with a glove on, just wondering if it was an issue like working with it on. Crashing and smashing it? Figured I would leave it on, just wanted to get other opinions. This marriage thing is all too new to me!!
If I'm riding a ton I sometimes leave it off cause the callus gets huge next to it and I end up having to shave it off, but usually I just leave the ring on. Mine's Ti so I may lose that finger if I have a bad hand fracture, but who cares. I have a funky 6 finger typing style that doesn't use that finger anyways
Besides, she rides with her's and it's actually worth something more then sentimental
I normally put my Ti ring in my Camelback while riding. They are nearly impossible to cut off should you hurt your hand and it starts to swell. Gold can be cut with wire cutters. If you have a tungsten ring take it off for sure. Very few hospitals will be able to to cut it off.
I've read and seen one Tungsten Carbide ring somewhere here. Quite nice, and supposed to be really scratch resistant. I was thinking about getting a pair, and the web has tons of places selling the same ones all for different prices, claiming they are different.
