    Awd is for sissies....jpgbicycle.jpg20 mile coldest day.jpg 'All wheel drive' is for sissies, and the 20 mile pic temp was 12 degrees without the additional windchill of my pace. Needless to say I was the only one crazy enough to be on the bike trail that day. But the solitude was great.

    My CX winter cycle. Fantastic bike. After years on hardtail, this was a very nice choice for me

    I'm looking for Bianchi X4 bike or frameset in size 52-54!

    I originally posted my winter bike below when I should have posted here. Sorry about my faux pas.

    This is the semi-final version of my winter bike. I am not a drop bar kind of guy but I thought I would give it another try. Trek Portland that has been made into a single speed. Took off the 10 speed 105, put on a White Industries ENO crank, MKS pedals, Schwalbe Marathon Winters 35's, SKS fenders, changed out the bar to Race Face, Tektro brake and cross top levers. Spacer kit, 18 tooth Shimano cog (to be replaced by a Surly with a wider base), spacer kit and Surly Singleator. Last I replaced the seat post with a Soma set back and changed out the saddle to a Specialized Avatar.

    Tomorrow will be my first day taking it to work.

    What a nice looking bike and a great photo of it. I will be interested to hear how the 2 speed rear hub holds up over the winter.

    What better way to test out the Nokian's than a steep ice covered drainage ramp.

    After a 10km ride home, getting caught in a snow storm with the top down, and plowing into a drift while climbing the last bridge to home:

    Some of these bikes are so pretty/shiny that I'd be scared to ride them in the winter (I'm talking to you Thomand and Syvakma1).

    Winter solitude is great. It has to be a bit cooler in these parts before the trails empty.

    Ok I know I have shown my bike numerous times but this is the FINAL version. I hated the drops, I don't know why I even try anymore. I am happy with it now. My winter bike is complete.

    I put my pogies on the KM when temps dip below mid-30sf for my winter bike.


    Who cares what your bike weighs, just ride it!

    I have two winter bikes, one smooth-tired for dry / bare pavement days, and another with Xtracycle kit and studded front tire. Both are early 90's hybrid frames. Here the smoothie tows one of my trailers.

    The Xtracycle, seeing its first use in winter, has proved amazingly stable! I feel much safer on this bike when the roads are iffy.

    I've been wanting to build something like this for a while. Still haven't done it. For those interested, there's a bunch of good information in the comments on one of my blog posts about the merits of the SRAM Automatix vs. the SA S2C...

    2004 Devinci Oslo

    I could look at this thread all day. Great bikes, everyone!

    I seem to be going the opposite direction of most others... from fatter 26" tires and a heavy MTB frame to 700X35 Schwalbe Marathon Winter tires on a lighter Alu frame. Less able to handle everything, but better for my street commute 95% of the time. I've been enjoying this latest Winter Bike alot. 2004 Devinci Oslo. Pedals flat one side, cleated the other. I hate snow buildup under normal fenders, so I have improvised a little. I thought the panniers might collect lots of slush/ice/snow, but so far so good; very little has stuck to them so far. Best (coldest) day today so far this winter where I live in London, Ontario, Canada at -18C (-0.4 F). It was a great commute, got a little too hot actually.
