    Out on todays ride...

    Took the Single Speed out with Kevin. Had a great time the SS is a blast in the snow. I must say that the SS is amazingly fast uphill (ask Kevin). I can't wait to ride this bike more... but first I need to fix the crank whoops...

    Wow NICE PICS! Looks like fun but I know I'd bust my head out there!

    I don't get snow out her so I'm taking it that the it's soft? The second pic form the bottom looks like you'd go sledding down on the bike if it were hard ice!

    I've heard others use studded tires, doesn't look the case in your pics, not enough snow?

    When I come to FT Collins in the summer i'd love to ride with you. I don't have a MTB but have access as a friend owns a store.

    In Colorado Springs the snow melts fast. The studded tires are needed where there is ice. On my commute there are a few sections but not bad enough to warrant studs. And yes snow is soft..... problem is what is below hahahaha

    Sounds good to me. If you have a road bike I'll do that also!

    How is the road riding in Ft. Collins? My wife and I are going to visit friends out there this summer. I am the only rider, but I do plan on renting a bike for a day or two.

    Your ride looks AWESOME. I can't believe shorts were involved in that ride though!

    It wasn't that ad actually, I normally have shorts on but figured in snow I'd try to keep dry. As far as road rides go there are a lot of options up there for road rides. Have your friends hit up bike shops and see what they say. I mostly know MTB riding. I have not done too much road up there.
