yeah, lots of ice out there today. the whole alley by my apartment is one sheet of ice. i'm still in the process of building a fixed gear bike so i'm riding my mountain bike right now, but i'm worried about the salt hurting the fancy components and that stuff. should have the fixed gear done in about a week. if i'm primarily just commuting, and maybe a weekend ride or 2, on my mtn bike, do i have anything to worry about corrosion wise from about 1 weeks salt and slush and whatnot?
on a sidenote: i'm really surprised more people don't slip and kill themselves on philadelphia's sidewalks and alleys. seriously. and can we make a rule that if the building owner is too lazy to shovel the sidewalk they should at least throw some sand and salt down? that would help a lot.
