    A couple people have mentioned it already, but the easiest way to become a winter biker is to first become a summer biker and just don't stop.

    Actually this is a common misconception. The purpose of the tri/TT bike geometry is to increase aerodynamics. Your legs are going to feel like jelly when you start the run regardless of the bike's...

    One of my bikes does that too, but it will come and go. It will happen for a day or two and then disappear for a while.

    I always ride to work/home solo, but I do have a few friends who also ride to work. We compare notes and keep each other accountable, so I don't feel like I'm alone.

    My TT bike has bullhorns. Of all the different handlebars on my bikes (straight, drops, aero bars and bullhorns) the bullhorns are my least favorite.
