Haha, roads in Winnipeg... I commute on a hard-tail MTB with slicks. Charleswood has decent roads. Portage Ave is decent too. As is Assiniboine Park. Some of the worst I've seen are Roblin/Corydon (between Cathcart and Cambridge), Grant (east of Kenaston), Pembina Hwy, Henderson Hwy, Ness Ave, etc. I usually say to myself, "That would've been devastating on a CF fork." at least once a ride.
Edit: But I only get a couple flats and a couple broken spokes a year. Have had to rebuild hubs a few times. And the steerer assembly. And I've become best friends with my spoke wrench.
