This instructable is likely for a relatively small audience. The Bar Covers are intended to cover the handlebar area of a bicycle, in this case a fat bike used to ride in the snow and cold of winter. These covers provide an additional windbreak and insulation against the windchill of your hands on the handlebars. I have survived for 3 winters riding without this device, but at times my fingers have become cold, yes, even bitter cold. And that is while wearing specific gloves with a "lobster" style finger design that are intended to allow one to operate the brakes and shifters on a fat bike and still stay warm. However, this winter has been the coup de gras for cold hands. So today, while shopping in a local thrift store, I came up with this take on an already marketed idea but under my own moniker:
Fat Bike Bar Covers
Step 1: The tools you will need
The tools for this project are few. A sewing machine (does not have to be a vintage Made in Sweden by Husqvarna Viking automatic, but it helps) a pair of scissors, and a talented seamstress (my wife).
