Sold mine back in Winter. Too heavy, relaxed and unfun for my tastes. My Miyata steel bike is enough of a bike for me :)

Rode the 32 semi-slicks on Saturday. During the snowstorm before plows, and after with a thin layer of packed ice/snow. It went fine. As long as you go slowly, and take turns upright, you don't need...
