Julio,
Looks very good, comfy and functional.
I have a similar cockpit setup on my Thorn.

Sorry to be a little late in replying, Julio--

Just yesterday I was in my local outdoor shop, having my more-or-less annual conversation with a guy about Keeping Hands Warm and Dry on de bike, and he was showing me what the local fat-bike riders have settled on:  All variants on your solution. So, you seem to have nailed it -- well done!

"Pogies", I think they're called in these parts -- adaptations of kayakers' tools.

(They don't quite work for me, as I use drop bars on my Raven, and although there are drop-bar versions, they're for derailleur bikes, and my Rohloff shifter sits on my Thorn T-bar below my handlebars. Then again, I take my bikes off the road betw early December and late March, or until the ice is off the roads.)

Safe journeys,  John

Hi John,

Yes i could test them, it was around O degree and that works well, just with summer gloves...
I think it is the essential option for riding all day in winter.
