My snow bike is a hybrid with disk brakes, fenders and 700x35c studded tires. Previously I had a rigid-forked MTB with disk brakes and 26" tires...and in hindsight I preferred it for commuting in the snow because I could use wider 26" studded tires. I looked at 29ers, but most of what I saw did not have braze-ons and eyelets for fenders, rack and such.
"Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
