Now that is funny. Brought back memories of trying not to crash when my pants got caught between chain and spokes as well as the right side cuffs getting all tore up!

I use a disposable latex or nitrile glove. Slip glove on and with fingers around the ball pull glove off with other hand. Basically rolling the glove onto the ball. I use a bright orange glove which helps keep shines away too. I do the same thing on the ends of my spring bars.
