Re: Heated grips - good idea?
When it's cold heated grips are the greatest invention ever. However, I've only ridden bikes with heated grips, never owned a bike with them. I have regularly ridden in 0 deg C conditions, without heated grips, using a tight fitting inner glove that skiers use (some high tech warm and wind proof thing), underneath my normal winter motorbike gloves. There is a slight loss of finger dexterity in the beginning, using blinkers etc, but you get used to it, and it's not that major.
