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.

We are very lucky to live a few minutes from Mt-Royal park in Montreal, so I take every opportunity to climb up there, a nice 11k trek on my old Marine fitted with Schwalbe Ice Spikers.

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.......

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.

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.

For Next Winter

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.
