    Bring on Winter

    After three years of Pugsley bliss, I have finally made the upgrade which was the reason for me choosing this frame over all the others. This year's Anchorage commute should be fun!

    Nice bike Neighbor. I like the fenders.

    I have to admit that white scares me a bit given how white everything can be up here.

    Awesome ride, but hell no on winter. It's raining, and I have over 16 miles to get home this evening, and would like to make it under an hour, which makes for sucking raining riding, bleh. I'll just pretend to be happy about being on my bike... maybe then I'll actually be happy.

    Those fenders look nice, where'd you get them.

    I'm sure many of us would be glad to send you the extra winter we don't want.

    Like the Brooks flyer; I've been thinking of getting one for my winter ride. It looks plush.

    I get excited for winter because you go from being a cyclist to being an adventurer! I have a new (to me) winter bike all tuned up and ready-- it just needs the studded tires.

    Hoping for a few blizzards here! Looks like a killer winter commuter set up!

    Dammit...one of the reasons I haven't bought a fat bike is because I told myself fenders weren't available. My little ones don't like getting covered in gravel and dust in the trailer so I need fenders (besides for the obvious weather benefits). Now I know they exist, I'll probably start ogling fat bikes again.

    You don't read my signature anyway, do you?
