I think you'll end up with a warm ear if she reads this !! Just keep holding the back box (so to speak) when in a que, works for me !!

Fit heated grips.

Splatshop sell them specially developed for trials bikes.

I used to get cold fingers from clutch/brake levers riding in snow and ice on the enduro bike. A few spiralwraps of electrical insulation tape around each lever stopped the metal soaking the heat out of my damp gloved hands. You get a bonus with a bit grip on the levers from the ridges of the overlapping tape and also some insulation tape for use when needed. Seems to work on the old trials iron too.

I certainly have that problem, both hands thought.

Heated grips don't help me, since I try and keep a finger on each all the time.

I've wrapped them with good results, shirk tubing works also.

I wear nitrile gloves under my riding gloves when cold- much warmer.

Once my hands warm up I don't like the movement inside, but better than cold fingers!

I use a Clake 2- so that's my rear brake and clutch. I trial ride the bike most of the time and almost always have a finger of the lever.

I also have Reynolds conditon, and that makes it all worse.
