The ridiculous futility of winter-proofing the bike has begun: bear paws

Oh yeah, you know you want to look as cool as me driving around w/ these handlebar-mount bear paws on. I gave them a trial-run today. They are a solid 6/10 on the effectiveness, and a 2/10 on the fashion sense.

But... you knew there was a gadget twist... I have a couple of metres of nichrome wire coming. And a battery pack. I'm thinking we can make them heated enough to be warm, and not so heated there is fire or the smell of burning fingers.

    Looking “cool”. So how much snow can this bad boy handle? I might join the club.

      last winter it handled all the snow we got.
      but a few of those -25C days were pretty tough to perserve through.

    I’ve got a nice set of inner gloves, back panel and socks, all heated, makes you ready for winter rides. I can recommend them all.
