The price in the title seemed high but it's fairly consistent with motorcycle products.

I found on my motorbike that getting the fingers warm with grip heaters and getting the fingers out of the wind with the windscreen or handguards were both effective. I suppose the Bark Busters with added spoilers would look sort of silly on a bicycle, though. I'm sure pogies would work, too.

You can get grip heaters for a motorcycle and they're very nice. But it's funny, the right always works better than the left. The right one is wrapped around the plastic throttle tube under the grip and it's not directly on the metal handlebar, which is a huge heat-sink for the one on the left. Grip heaters are sometimes made twice as powerful on the left but it still doesn't work as well.
