I couldn't make bar mitts work in the drops unless I rode outside them. I picked up the moose mitts used so I can't help on where to find them. They appear to be beyond googles reach.

I have a 12.2. Nice bike, claimed to be 26 pounds, light for a 1970's Schwinn. As mentioned will require additional investment but a worthwhile bike when done.
