Winter bar mitt sliders

Postby malcolmzilla » Sat Jan 06, 2018 12:02 am

My bikes sport bar mitts most winter rides, aka “commit-mitts”.

However, I’d destroy a set well before the end of a season, crashing those errant trees. So, I cut a used oil gallon oil container into strips and bolted it on the the mitts into the bark busters underneath, using the summer buster deflector pattern. These mitts are going on 3 seasons now.

Note I need to find some more button head bolts for the outside bolts, they go bit easier across the bark...

Good tip for sure, mitts like to stick to the trees :D

I haven't been doing much riding this winter, but I sure like the mitts when I do. Best part is keeping those grips nice and dry...
