I'm not really hardcore, I'm pretty wimpy compared to the guys, but being a girl, I can get away with it.

I don't know if there are any made specifically for drop bars. There are pogies used for snowmachines (mobiles) and 4-wheelers or kayaking, which are bigger than what I have. Or you could always have some custom made. Good luck!

But then I enjoy stuff like this, so I may enjoy cold more than others:

We don't need fenders, everything is frozen so no wet spray. I haven't noticed any issues with snow being thrown up on my back. It either doesn't happen or I don't notice.
