I love the drop bar versions I have. I only break them out when its sub freezing, otherwise my hands get too hot with light gloves.

It doesnt get cold enough in TX to need them often, but I got them on sale at a local shop instead of buying heavy windproof gloves. I have one pair of gloves I wear throughout winter and just add the Bar Mitts when its too cold for my regular gloves.

The downsides are that you cant really move your hands around to different positions when you use them and your hands are a little restricted for shifting if you have STI type shifters.
