I am looking at a 'be all' bike for a multi-mode commute (5 miles via bike path) and the occasional longer ride. Whatever I get I need to use throughout the year- even in the middle of winter
The Season Tikit looks perfect- except I cant get studded tires in winter for it. Typically there will be about 1-2 months of icy weather and the bike path does not get any ice or plowing. There is not much snow, just the ice but it gets pretty slippery
So, for all of you who have a Tikit- how does it handle in the ice? I thinking the smaller wheels and lower center of gravity might help a bit but interested in real life experiences
The only other option is to get a stock/singlespeed Tikit, and then use the difference in price to get a winter beater for the winter. Lock it at the station and hope it is there when I get back!
