Snowed today in Baltimore. I know 1 1/4" snow is no big deal, nor is 27 degree temps.
But I had a problem today, B town is not known for clearing streets quickly, if at all if it is a back one.
So I FOB'ed (fell off bike), stopping at a 4 way stop, I saw it coming, as the suv in front of me had trouble stopping on what turned out to be ice.
Doing 0 mph I started to clip out left side, and bang bike went right, I went down.
Actually had trouble standing up it was that slippery.
Are studded tires any good?
How to deal with tire float in snow.
Braking, today I never used my rear brake at all and it seemed to work, any pointers?
Icing on drive train and rear derailer, anyway to prevent?
But hey it was fun. Did not hurt anything but my pride. Got up and rode home. Car behind me sat and spun.
