here's mine (the all-aluminum marin (san anselmo 2000)). i changed the headset/stem/handlebar and installed nokian w106 (700c) tires, fenders and home-made mud flaps and added "christmas tree" decorations... this bike (and the tires) will soon start their 4th year of service... forecast is for 15-30cm of snow tonight!!!
the other one was my first winter-beater. way too heavy and way too small for me... it was thrown away (along with the innova tires, after ~2 years of service...).
Did some riding around Riverside State park yesterday. For my winter riding I just lower the tire pressure and loosen up the pedal tension some. The pics are in the old camp Seven Mile area of the park.
1997 Schwinn Mesa - Was my 14th birthday gift from my grandparents. Ten years later and I have finally started to take care of it and ride it like I should. This will be its first time seeing snow. Oh boy!
Just this month I have converted it to 2x2, new bars, rigid fork, fenders, BB, crankset, framesaver, everything painted, lubed and sealed. Gonna see how it does in the white stuff before getting some studs.
I just parked the bike and thought I'd snap a pic and post a pic...
My Kuwahara Cascade (fixed gear) on the commute the other day.
My Trek 7500 cross conversion after tonight's ride.
The Kuwie is my severe weather bike and besides being a fioxed gear runs a studded front tire whole the Trek is
ideal for those days after the roads have been cleared... the Schwalbe CX Compe tires on the Trek are working
beautifully and one would almost think they were studded as the traction and handling are excellent.
A picture in the snow. Most of the snow has melted today, it is supposed to stay warm all week. Hopefully after that we will get some deep stuff. No pictures of me on the bike, as I have nobody to ride with, snow or not.
