It was asked in another thread:

Where did you get those covers for your hands?
I didn't want to clutter that thread up so here's the info -

The "Moose Mitts" I have where made by a local shop owner: www.trails-edge.com
The specific page for them is: AMF Threadworks Bike Mits

Other then a good pair of winter shoes, Moose Mitts are the #1 piece of gear that enable me to ride through the winter. I'm sure there's a few people making them, but of course these were made locally...

Pretty fancy. Do they cost more or less than one-way airfare to California? :D

I have heard these highly recommended.

Thanks for re-igniting the Quiring Ti lust. Thought I was over that.:rolleyes:

I would definitely use those if my winter commuter had gears... or brakes. I just roll with a glove liner, thick mittens, and a death grip.

this is a fantastic product description....

"Do you like to blaze your own trail on your bike?
If so, you'd better get your shins some protection.
1.5mm Neoprene front, and Lycra back, these Shing Guard can also be used as shin warmers when the pad is removed. Double-stiched at seams. ":nono:

Thanks for the feedback

Thanks for the feedback guys...I am glad their working well for everyone else too. Rode in the 30's the other day and my hands were sweating. I of course made my custom pair to match me new Bandersnatch.




Jerry, We really need to get you a new pair. Your pair is V1.0 which were made with simple Duck Canvas, Sprayed with waterproofing. I took Mike Moss, and Jon Heft's back as a trade in and trade up program for $20 if you want.

Now if I could just get a little faster on the sewing machine...;) Thanks for all of your patience with me this year too. The holidays put us back for a few weeks but were finally catching up.

I have had a pair of Moose Mitts for the past few months and they work great. New Years day gravel ride of 6 degrees with a -18 windchill for 35 miles and my hands were warm, with a light glove on. Well worth the price.
