    Any thin mountaineering shell should work. They are generally made with longer sleeves and a rear that is long enough for coverage.

    Got the size 47 303s today. Ordered the wide. As far as I can tell they fit the same. FWIW I think the sole is exactly the same sole; zero changes.

    If I can, I get off the road I wait for them to pass.

    i want the plow drivers to love bikes and I encourage them to plow curb to curb. I facilitate that by moving aside.

    You'll need a stronger saddle to support your huge balls.

    You are braver than I am. Setting aside the obvious safety risk, here is why I never successfully towed the kid in a trailer. I tried. I...

    I think you'll be fine with those shoes. -30c is probably a stretch for them but -10c to -20c should be fine if you have THICK socks and a quality insulating insole. At whatever temp the pain starts...

    It depends on what gets cold. What body part gets cold? Upper leg, lower leg, front, back, knee, behind the knee.... I have to imagine that it's not all "getting to cold" all at the same time.

    My few cents:

    "tights," because they are stretchy, are not a good candidate for wind proofing. They work well as an insulating layer and depending on the materials will vary in terms of warmth per...

    As for below -20F, the coldest I have ridden is -25F so I cannot really say what I will wear if it gets colder. That said, I think my -20 setup should be good down...
