    I absolutely love riding it. It's my primary winter commuter for up to about 2" of snow on the roads. Over 2" or so the trike pretty much becomes a snow plow, so I use a hybrid bike with studded tires. I haven't had to resort to the bike yet because they usually do a good job keeping the roads clear.

    Usually not, but this year it started to snow early. Then the snow melted this week and now it started snowing again.

    Just built this up with a SA AW hub. Works great! Probably would benefit from some studded tires though once the ice sets in.

    Nice build, and a very nice-looking bike path. Where is that, if I may ask, and where did you buy those BikeWrappers?

    Thanks for the compliment on my bike. The path is actually a closed road near my apartment in Columbus, Ohio. The bikewrappers were a Christmas present that I had asked for. Their website is www.bikewrappers.com and they sell three different ones with different designs on the flip side of the reflective side. They're 45.00 US.

    Just about to head home after spending the evening riding... a little fresh snow and some warm winds made for a wonderful ride down but it looks like a blizzard is brewing.

    Pics...

    Standlight on the bike... not so bright.



    Nice to have everything to oneself...



    A little oasis of light...

    Wherever that photo was taken is just beautiful. Can we get some more pictures of the area? (and the bike too).
