    Lock de-icer...

    ... comes in handy. This morning I rode to an exam in the snowstorm we're having and locked up with my u-lock. When I tried to unlock an hour later, the key wouldn't turn. I had to walk home and get some de-icer.

    Also, I may stop using the lock holder on my frame this winter. yeah, didn't quite think that one through.

    Otherwise, snow riding with studded nokians and full fenders f-ing rocks.

    Once the lock dries out put some graphite powder in the mechanism. It is made for lock tumblers and will keep it working smoothly.
