I road cycle and this coming winter will ride as much as I can only when it is dry out and 40F or above. Do I need a winter bike for this? I live in the center of the US and we do get snow and they do use salt / sand on the roads. I have a fairly expensive main bike but if I keep it clean and lubricated do I really need a winter bike?
If I don't need a second bike I was thinking of changing out my rims to the Hed Ardennes clincher for the little bit of extra contact patch.
