    What size fenders are those. They look good with those big tires.
    I've got 2.5 tires and I'm looking for some fenders to fit them.
    Did you make those mudflaps?

    65- Are you running a dynamo hub to power that front light? If so what kind are you using? I'm thinking about converting my winter ride (which looks suspiciously similar to yours) to a generator powered light.

    Thanks either way. I really respect all the awesome builds you post here.

    And for racing along on non iced up roads and some winter mountain biking... stripped down the bike weighs about 23 - 24 pounds.

    Got my winter bike more or less ready to go for this winter a little while ago. I've got some 26" wheels that fit that I'd like to be able to swap in for deeper snow riding, but I can't find the proper brake adapters. I've only seen adapters that allow you to use a 700c wheel on bike made for 26" wheels and not the other way around (which is what I need).

    MKS Lambda pedals, also known as Grip Kings if you buy them from Rivendell. I did the Rivendell pedal spike mod on 'em, and now they're so grippy that I have to lift my foot all the way off of the pedal to reposition.

    I tried Tioga Surefoot 8 pedals and found them to be mad grippy, but too narrow. Then tried the MKS Sneaker pedal, which was too slick. I love the Lambdas, they're big underfoot, super grippy, and spin like crazy.

    Nice bike Griddlecakes. I like how you Alaskans and Canadians think. Practical, sturdy and beefy, ready to take on anything that Mother Nature throws at you
    What frame is that? What tires? That rear rack looks expensive. That little bag or whatever it is on your seat looks like one of those parachutes on the back of
    Funny car. Nice pics.

    Yep... our bikes are just like us... practical, sturdy, and beefy.



    Well... I am practical.

    Thanks...

    The rear hub is a 1964 Sturmey Archer AG (3 speed AW with a generator) and it runs a BM Lumotec Halogen... it is a great riding light as it throws a tight beam at normal speeds and I usually run a 2 watt PB on the bars as the LED throws a wider pattern and works when I am stopped.

    The BM has a stand light that uses an LED which will stay on when you are waiting at lights which is nice and has an automatic sensor as well.

    Thanks! I enjoy riding the winter setup almost as much as skiing, and that's saying something, considering the difference in environments (city grid vs. wooded trails). It takes a fair amount of snow to stop this bike.The only thing that I dislike about winter riding is having to give the MUP over to skiers, so that my commute goes from 90% car-free MUP to 100% street.

    Kona Fire Mountain frame, Nokian Extreme 296 tires. The tires are really overkill most of the time, but they pay off in the icy ruts that form on a lot of the neighborhood roads around here, where low traffic, negligible sun, and low scraping priority from the city maintenance department means that these roads will often stay covered in bumpy rutted ice for weeks to months at a time. The Nokians also hold their own in loose snow and deep slush, and are great during spring break-up. Whenever we get into melt/freeze weather cycles I'd rather be on my bike than in my car, which isn't really surprising, considering that I have better winter tires on the bike than on the car.

    Rack is a Topeak Super Tourist, around $40 if I recall correctly. And the little bag under the saddle is just some cloth wrapped around a couple of spare tubes and a patch kit. I wish that I could ride fast enough to necessitate a drag chute.

    Here is mine. 09 Redline 29er. After two weeks of commuting, those stock pedals had to go. I'm now running Eastern bmx pedals. Ten pins of pure bliss. I have SKS fenders but might change to PB Cascadia ones if they don't cut it.

    That bike needs a few more links in the chain.
    People say I'm stupid and apathetic. I don't know what that means, and I don't care.
