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 long in cold weather.

I bought my Nomad in 2011 in black, thinking it to be the logical choice for stealth camping.  Now every time I suffer a look at a Nomad in that gorgeous Yellow color, I regret my choice. 

Can't wait for time travel to be refined a bit, so I can improve the color and look of my favorite bike.

I like that as well, but there is something so cheerful about yellow.  I received delivery of the Thorn Tandem a few weeks ago, in yellow, and every time I walk in there I repeat myself to my wife - Man, I love the color.  Green of course is a very close second for me, and a first choice now, if stealth is high on the list.

Salut Julio,
Je m'étais arrêté à la première page, et du coup les photos suivantes m'avaient échappé... (Grand mal m'en a pris)
Superbe évolution de ton Nomad au fil du temps.
Les manchons sur ton cintre, c'est de la récup sur un blouson moto ou ils se vendent tels quels ?

A bike is for life - but the colour is only till you get bored with it or find some other excuse to change.
I wouldn't choose yellow, yet I know someone with an original derailleur Nomad in that Tonka yellow and when it needed repainting they went for the same again...
