    BTFB you would probably melt in the bloody thing or get invited to some dodgy parties.

    Have you tried a buff can be worn as a basic balacava and once you are warmed up can be pulled down so its like a snood will give you more options than the gimp mask.

    I'd be interested to know if anyone has tried this. My nose was agony this morning.

    I use a buff as described. The only trouble is that when pulled down around the neck, it does prevent a fair bit of sweat from dissipating.

    I may buy it...I seem to have a very low cold threshold compared to a lot of peeps...either that or I'm just not pushing hard enough.

    I found myself having to aim my breath upwards this morning to stop my nose freezing off.

    it was cold this morning granted, I was on the scooter with the winter lining in the jacket and handlebar muffs and I could feel the cold nibbling around the edges

    good luck out there with jack frost, I'll back with y'all Monday, maybe tomorrow

    just spoke to LBS, trued (again) tricky one involving three loose spokes, not for the home mechanic apparently

    cold face here I come
