    Monday nights snow cruise

    Well I broke my geared rig for the time being and want to go play in the snow still. I took the SS to Green Mountain to make some freshies. It was a blast and a work out to say the least. There is something peaceful about the snow and night time. I am glad i went, however I fear that it will be a muddy mess in a couple days so get out while it's frozen.. The snow is nice and fluffy as of tonight. For those curious it was 15 degrees so I wore long pants on this run.. not shorts

    Wow, nice pics! Looks cold, don't tell me you rode in shorts!...You'll be happy to know I rode in the snow too, well up to the snow, well We saw some snow, well, it was white, well sort of white! It's not easy living here!

    I like the pic with the black background. At first I thought the brightlights were stars!. Then realized snowflakes relfecting light, shows how much I know about snow!

    Do you ride clipless in that stuff? Kinda looks like you do from the photos. I've made a few attempts at snow rides clipless and can't really say I'm all that comfy with it. Maybe a good core building work-out trying to keep upright though!

    I didn't have my gloves with me or I might have thought about touching it!!

    Wow, pretty low spoke cont on the front wheel. No problems hopping rocks and such? Or is it a fairly new wheel?

    I normally don't go clipless but my main snow rig is currently down. I took a couple spills but in the end I had a blast and I think overall it will help me. All of my falls were up hill anyway!

    Be a risk taker... touch snow bare handed LOL I have had that front wheel for years and I do 4' + drops with it. It has been one of the best rims I have ever had. I have a couple of pics from when that bike had gears as I was laughing off a few obstacles.
