    Out and about in Burlington's Intervale on my '96 Fisher Mt. Tam. Primary use is as a winter run-around/errand bike around town, but I have been getting it out on trails too, as you can see here. The temperature gauge hanging from the saddle read a balmy 25 on this day.

    We faced the blizzard and were victorious

    We faced the blizzard and were victorious.



    The first day we rode a hilly 72km in the searing cold - as we left, the temperature was -29C, and it
    didn't warm up much during the day. Morale was high throughout the ride.



    After a night of partying and not enough rest, we set back home, to brave all the hills from Saint-Raymond
    to downtown Quebec City. Here we are, ready to depart.



    The second day was difficult due to the blizzard and the 40km/h headwind that gusted to even higher speeds.
    Visibility was low, the roads were covered with thick snow, and progress was generally slow. But we made it!

    ^^ looks cool.

    what's going on here - looks like you're running a cassette as a singlespeed? if so, i feel like that chain would try to jump up a cog if the chainline wasn't perfect, or even if the chain moves sideways when you hit a bump.

    until now, no problems. i broke the chain and made sure there was enough tension to keep it from jumping. then again, i haven't hit any serious bumps yet.

    The blizzard pics/story by Hernick are impossible to top, so I'm not trying, but here are a few pics from Colorado.

    I just got a bike worthy of winter riding. I was too afraid to take my skinny slicks on the snow, so tonight I got this Jumper cleaned up and ready to go. Of course I needed a test ride.

    This shot is me arriving home up the walk. It's -28C with windchill -38C tonight. I only went 6 or 7 km.



    Lost the ability to shift rear derailer about 5 minutes into it. I think the cog that catches inside the shifter may be a bit stiff. The front one was, and I had to clean and lube it while working on the bike. Guess I'll have to do the rear one too.

    I wish I had as much cojones as you guys. Here's my first attempt:
    Just my motobecane cross bike with the stock 30C cross tires; I really want to invest in a nice pair of 38C's. But then, we don't get all that much snow here, so maybe I can survive on these.

    props for biking in the snow in port jefferson anyway, since it would be so easy to hop into that blasphemous car that we can all see in the background. do you commute on your bike?* if so you could probably justify the tires, otherwise, there's probably no point.

    *you should start commuting on your bike.

    I cleaned the little pawl and the pin it rides on in the shifter. It's still 25 below, but I could shift the rear on tonight's ride. :-)

    The radio is in a gallon ziplock, the derailleur has a Grunge Guard on it. Which works very well, keeps it looking like new. And keeps all of the crud off of it.

    What can I say no studs no lights all winter every winter this Suntour equipped Fuji gets me out and home again. The only thing is I have to free up the FD sometimes if it's below 15F.
