I have an older pair of Bar Mitts. They do not fit on my new gravel bike as the hoods where the hydraulics are located are too tall. I also do not like the fact that you are restricted to braking from the hoods which I feel is sketchy especially on steep descents. Have any of you used the newer version which allows braking from both the hoods and the drops? https://barmitts.com/products/road-b...tion-bar-mitts

Click on the picture to see how they are mounted on the bars.
