    So I'm in the market for a trainer for my recumbent. I had one for my trike that I only used once, but that was due to a foot injury.

    I'm trying to decide between buying a cheaper one from...

    I've never needed a bell on a winter bike. But no, I can't see how it would work. Maybe one of those battery operated horns with a remote (if they exists).

    I have those on 2 of my flat bar winter bikes as well. They work good for me too. I modified them by putting a hole in them and using a bar end plug (or bar end mirror) to hold them in place on the...

    If there's loose snow on the roads, I lower the pressure to about 10 PSI. If I ride on bare pavement, I pump it up to about 25 PSI. I've not been doing it for long, so I don't know how this will...

    Any organized ride within a 20 mile start of my house, I ride to.

    Anything farther than that, I have 2 options:
    1. Ride the day before
    2. Drive

    I've recently added a fat bike to my fleet. If I had studded tires for it, I could see using it as my only winter bike. It's main benefit is on non-plowed or poorly plowed roads.

    I'm loving my fat bike for winter riding. It handles the slush, packed snow, and ruts so much better. The bike feels stable on just about everything compared to my mountain bike with 2" wide tires...

    For slow climbs, you can't beat a trike.

    The only issue I ever had on trails with a trike was the poles they use to keep vehicles off. I had to slow way down to go through those. That, and...

    If I see one coming behind me, I usually pull off at a side street or parking lot. If that's not possible, they usually stop their salt and give me plenty of room.

    I've tried exactly twice on my fixed gear bicycle. I failed both times.. I didn't want to learn badly enough to try again. I've never felt the need for it.

    I had one on my ICE Sprint. I still have the BROL flag that I got for it. I can't figure out a good way to put it on my Bacchetta Giro. I'd like to put it on depending on the riding conditions.
