I run 42 mm cross tires with mini-vs and have room to spare.
All brakes have pros and cons to them.
Cantis clear mud well for cx riding and can be set up wide enough that an untru rim will not rub. For actually stopping a bike quickly they suck. I have...
I have the grand bois cerf blue tires extra leger tires. Light, very fast and smooth. These are the first tires where I really noticed a differnce in ride quality. Really nice tires, love these...
It looks exactly like the panasonic made grand bois tires i use. Wonder if panaracer just renamed them.
Go to MEC. Raceface ride is $27. Problem solved
Snowcats rims were build to take standard mtb tires on a "regular" bike and run as low as 5 psi. Super wide profile and grip. So a 2.0-2.5 tire would easily fit. Some bikes might accomadate a...
You could try a snowcat rim, or similar stlye fat rim, you could go upto about a 3.5 mtb tire at a super low psi. Fatbike website has some info. Would be pricey though.
Cheapest ones you can find. They all work great, easy to clip into with the pedal covered in snow and the shoe/cleat packed with snow. I have 5 sets, 2 are the old plastic body ones that are about...
Sand=snow is silly. There is no road beneath the sand so of course a skinny tire will harder to steer, and have poor traction. The tire has nothing solid underneath to provide stability. And skis,...
You could use thin styrofoam , the kind that meat is sold on from the grocery store and cut it out in the shape/size of your insole. Or buy some felt insoles from pretty much anywhere.
I like arm warmers. If it gets warmer i can take them off without having to remove a layer from my core.
It sucked. I carry co2, tubes and patches, and a lock. I ride with spare thin gloves so if it is out wet I don't get my riding gloves wet. I also carry chemical hand warmers.
I havent used either of those, but have used almost identical ones on my mtb, hated them. Imo good for commuting where black ice is an issue. For rutted ice, cornering, icy bumps, useless.
But, the thing is, I have the right kind of bike for winter, a fixed gear, and the smaller tires with fenders allows for less snow buildup under the fender.
And why would I want wider...
Personally i ride 23mm slicks in the winter at 110psi. They cut right through the slop, snow and crap on the roads. I find wider tires at lower presure just slide everywhere. Also skinner tire...
Good warm durable wool socks can be found cheap ($10 ) at bass pro shops. The redhead extreme cold socks are nice. Wool, holofil and acrylc. The redhead lifetime guarantee are really good as well....
Here you go
Those are self activating.
The ones I like are marked self activating, rather than air activating.
There are different types of toe warmers. The toasty toes brand are designed specifically for tighter fitting boots and less air flow. I've found them to be very good at producing heat over an...
Love them. I find for me, that putting the adhesive side on the insole rather than to my sock provides better heat. +1 on the ziplock tip, works pretty good.
