I finally took my Trek Fat20 for a ride yesterday. The front end is super stable, though the back end can go a little crazy in loose snow but is easy to deal with. The studs hit my winter boots in tight slow turns, less so if I wear my old smaller boots. I really love having the drop position for climbing, I'm going to have to try putting drop bars on my Moonlander some time.

Cold this morning.
'87 Schwinn High Sierra w/Marathon Winters.
From my Strava gran fondo 2 trip last weekend. Wet and windy, but no snow or ice on the road
Attachment 365013. We have twice the snow now then when I took this last month.
Beater/Winter/utility/exercise/recreation/etc. bike version 1.5. Took advantage of the recent down time to make some improvements. Don't worry the threaded to threadless adapter stem is in the fork well past the minimum insertion mark, very close to being bottomed out in fact. Still a couple small items to do but it is nearing it's final version.......

Attachment 366803 My walmart hybrid... believe it or not it handles fairly well.
My shots do pale in comparison to those awesome pics shown here, but just sharing the happiness and relief to finally being able to log in a ride after more than a month of hiatus because of the brutal winter we had here in the East Coast, particularly in Chester County, PA. It seems every arsenal Old Man Winter has in his war chest, he's thrown at us this season: Polar Vortex, Ice Storm, Nor'easter with sprinkling of 1, 2, and 3-inch snows here and there. So the 36°F overcast weather we had today, I'd gladly take it.
5 minutes for icycling!
Close call @ Icycle 2014 in Toronto. Elite Rubber Class! :)
Winter has been over here for at least two months...not like Western Oregon and Washington State so I really have no winter bike to show except to say I don't ride my Rollfast during the winter, only the Schwinn.
With the daytime temperatures being in the pluses, and it is supposed to be this way all week with highs hitting the low 50's it is getting drier and have seen more folks riding summer bikes, saw a couple wearing shorts today, and one guy was out on his motorcycle.
This is from first snowfall on the trails in ONtario Canada
this is just my winter beater bike,
this is 96 Maxam Lightweight Heavyweight mt bike
Norco Pinnacle, eastern shore of Lake Huron...kids will have to wait awhile before using the swing
Snow, muck, salt, slush. Poor old winter beater...
In Montréal today. Didn't I hear spring began a few days ago?
Just found this on eBay for an unbelievable price. It won't be just a winter bike nor will it be the only bike I ride next winter.
Local winter weather conditions and road conditions vary so greatly that one bike setup isn't ideal or safe.
So not ready for another winter already :(
