    Show us your winter rides.

    Knowing that there are two hemispheres, I'm asking folks to show us the bike you ride in the winter (regardless of when that is for you). Mine is one made from a Nashbar commuter frame and parts left over from other projects. The thing that makes it my winter ride is the fenders, bar end shifters (much easier to use when wearing "lobster" gloves), and studded Nokkian tires.

    Oh, and I realize those in warm weather are likely to post rides that don't require equipment able to deal with snow, ice, rain, etc. But that's OK. Post them anyway.

    If studded tires aren't needed, The Soma Double Cross comes out. It has Schwalbe Marathon Cross tires;

    Mine is the pinnie and this was bought as my N+1 for retirement. Just the Cheaper Uno FP with Tiagra. Rides OK but not as good as the other two I have but it does save wearing out the better bikes. The other bike is my neighbours Forme that he bought a year ago and this is his winter- summer-snow- rain-mud and anything else he can throw at it.

    Where is the bike with the IGH? It looked ideal for winter use.

    I Do have a Nexus hybrid as a beater but I use that for local rides into town but it is not for Daily use- just for short trips and shopping.

    Everyone's seen this one of me and my 2006 Trek Portland. This is from the winter of 2007-2008.



    From the winter of 2008-2009, parked in a snowbank at the bank.



    Someday I'll get a new camera. Mr. Portland now sports much better wheels with a dynohub up front, better lights, nicer fenders, and nicer panniers. Same studded snow tires. Seventh season now.

    I ride this one year-round, Titanium cross bike with a carbon fork. It usually sports full coverage fenders - they typically come off July to mid-October.

    Here I am with my Pugsley

    I have three winter bikes...since winter is three times longer than summer, I guess. Here I am with my pugsley. I just posted a short vid in the Winter bike forum of road biking. Horribly boring. I don't get hit by a car but I do blather on about heart rate and some other nonsense at

    "Byron," my Soma Mixte gets a set of Nokian A10's to use daily on the street,


    IMG_0496.JPG

    The Hunq gets 45mm Nokian w106 for use in the hardcore slop and fun on the trails when they get icy.

    My winter ride this year is an old '98 Norco Cherokee rescued from a junk pickup. I knew the lady who bought it but her son had trashed the seat and the seatpost was bent. The freewheel was sticking and tossing the chain. $19 dollars and some prts bin stuff and it works pretty OK.

    This actually my general utility bike -- for rain and other slop. I don't know where the rear trunk is. I almost always have it on -- especially in cooler weather as it's great for carrying extra / unused layers.

    I just put on a set of Kenda Kross Supreme tires but wish I had put on some studs instead. Maybe next winter.

    ... I love those fenders... They really make a difference when I gets wet and sloppy.
