I recently decided that being cold sucks. I am tired of coming in from the cold and my fingers remaining painfully cold for over an hour or having to stop for over 30 minutes because I am shivering. So I bought some Gerbing's gear. While hooking everything up I became concerned about yanking the cords out when I go down. It is my belief that if you ride any serious trail you will go down no matter how good of a rider you are, and if you dont go down you arent riding challenging enough trails :) As a result I was wondering how people solved this problem. I noticed the coiled extension cord which extends 4 feet, which I am unsure if that would be enough as I have on occasion ended up more than 4 feet from my bike. I would have preferred a magnetic connection like seen on some of the higher end laptops and other devices as that would cleanly sever the connection without anything yanking but that does not (yet) seem to be an option (I just sent an email to Gerbing's about that). So how do you solve the problem of potentially yanking and breaking your heated gear? I was unable to find any threads in the forum that appeared to specifically address this problem.
