    It snowed a few days ago, but the wind & hail was far more impressive.

    I left my winter beater by the curb when I moved recently, a rusty urbanite that I was never particularly fond of. I bought it out of need. I'd just paid off a new Devinci, had it a month & it got ganked. Had to get something cheap & on credit at Urbane to keep working. It was a great ride with those qualifiers, inexpensive, solid & available on credit. Fabulous beater for 5-6 years and 3 solid work winters someone else has it now, it was only by the curb for an hour or so. If I hadn't let it rust solid after jacking up my knee again I'dve kept it, but I'm lazy, I gotta have real love for a bike to treat it right.

    ...I bet it doesn't miss me[/wistful]

    I think that was a "gave it away" version of "left it by the curb", not a "stolen" version.

    And no, nobody joined me for pho. It's alright though, I had William Gibson to keep me company.

    I usually use inverted tread tires for the winter. Works nice in snow and clear roads.

    I only busted out the knobbies once last year. Usually, you don't really need them-it is way too soon now for sure. Slick tires are a good time.

    I've been thinking about this WINTER issue for a while.. I'm not sure what to do.

    It seems that a sealed bearing fixie would be good. RIGHT?
    I know that freewheeling on slush is not so fun.

    I'm thinking some cyclecross tires, full brakes and fenders.

    I ran 23c slicks all last year, but last year was also pretty mild and snow-free. If things get sketchy this year I might try some cyclocross tires. That was on my urbanite (also a rusty boat-anchor with at least one rusted-stuck area) with race-blade knockoffs (since the fork doesn't have fender eyelets).

    i believe that would be the publicist for the book publishers. and to answer cav's question, if it's anything like the book launches i've been to, yes there is usually food and drinks too if you're lucky.

    g-boy i used to work for the chain bookstore; are you at the "big c"? which one?

    i'm thinking about throwing cyclocross tires on the purple bike and using up an old quando flip flop. perhaps a basket is in order... then again i rode the same bike all year last year and had no complaints.
