Rode today in light rain and about 38F. My gear worked OK, shoes are not waterproof but with wool socks never felt wet. Fenders worked good. Bar Mitts worked well with the Jones bar, wore summer dirt bike gloves with no problem.
Thanks Turtle01, fixed the seat bag, funny how I never noticed and always wondered why I could not get the bag tight.
Great ride today with my new Keen Brixens. Found a nice trail system that is close to home. Never felt a tire slip. I do need to remember on rough inclines to not go into such a low gear as one big root will just stop me as I have no momentum. Hot chocolate in the Thermos.
Do you still like the bar mitts? Curious now that you have had them out a few times what your thoughts were.
They work great for Midwest type weather, 15-40F. I like that I can wear thin gloves and feel my controls. They work in cold, wind and rain conditions. If I was in colder conditions I think Pogies would be the way to go.
