B17 imperial in the cold, problem solved!

Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

B17 imperial in the cold, problem solved!

So the other day with temps in the low 20s but with clear roads I decided to take the LeMond Zurich out for one more ride. It's equipped with a Brooks B17 Imperial which has a cutout in it. About 10 miles into the ride the "boys" were getting really, really cold a problem I have not enountered on my winter bike. To solve the problem I just taped a heat pack to the bottom of the saddle centered on the opening. The rest of the ride was nice and comfy. Just thought I'd share this tip for all the other winter riders.
Steel is real...and comfy.
