I'm going to resurrect this thread to see how the bike turned out.
I am in a bit of a debate with myself as well concerning a winter commuter (only going to need it to handle snow/ice for a couple of months, probably, and then it would be an all the time commuter). I have a fixed gear (which I would happily use, but it won't accept larger tires), so I appreciate the simplicity and ease of maintenance of this bike, but I'm also concerned that I'll regret not getting a geared bike (like the Kona Smoke or the like) once the winds in MN kick up.
