Well last minute this morning I decided I would ride in, weather.com claimed it to be 35* out. Either way it was certianly cold, I was fairly warm up top and my bottom half but my finger tips were ice cold. Anyone using a glove that keeps their entire hand warm? Not that i plan on lots of cold winter rides.

I've had good luck with inexpensive ski gloves. If you look around the discount stores you can find Gortex lined gloves with small gauntlets for about $20. Not bulky, leather palm for good grip.

I didn't want to spend a lot either since I'm not a cold weather rider. They work well in this type of weather. Anything colder would require a better glove.

Thin rubber surgical gloves under your regular gloves. Cheap, easy to get, easy to keep in your jacket pocket.

Try it, it works.

Heated grips might become a reality on mine.
