    That's pretty well all I've ever done - maybe bounce the bike a couple of times to knock off the worst of the snow/slush/crud outside, then bring it into the apartment (tiled entryway, so a tarp...

    I did NOT know this! I'm going to see if my Dad knows it... he collects guns, mostly much older, though (black powder era). (I come from an interesting family. And I clearly come by my collecting...

    Oh, you have GOT to meet my mother. She lives in Lacombe and has more sewing machines than I do bicycles! Two of them are the twins of the ones in your first post - the Bernina is one I actually...

    If I may - the Maxxis Holy Rollers are not a winter specific tire. They're meant for a range of surfaces, but in cold weather the rubber compound is going to harden up and affect your traction, and...

    I had to laugh when I saw a Castelli jersey at work (MEC) and in the description it said it was for "cool weather cycling." So far so good - it was a wool blend, long sleeve thing - but the product...

    Answered above. 1 set 700X37 Top Contact Winter (non studded) at 35 psi, on flat bar road bike. No falls, but I don't ride this bike unless the weather and the pavement are pretty clear. Foul weather...

    I tend to agree with Cycle_maven that soemthing else may be at play here. I'd check with a doctor if I were you... but what you're describing sounds a lot like my sister's neurovascular headaches,...

    I run my tires at pretty low pressure (35 psi for the Top Contact Winter, 30 for the 26" studded tires; both are per manufacturer's recommendations). I'm not a big person though and that probably...

    Car accidents, I am guessing? I feel safer on my bike (with studded tires) than I do in a car when the winter turns ugly. I have better grip, generally - can't count the number of times I have passed...

    MITTENS. Never gloves.

    Specifically, cross-country ski mittens, which are made of softshell material so they are windproof but breathable; and a pair of merino wool liner gloves (very thin)...

    They really don't, unfortunately. Found that one out the hard way. (Then I keep trying it anyway, every year, and ouch). There's just not enough thickness to the ice for the studs to bite.
