I was wondering if any of you could help me out with some ideas, i love to bike and live about 20 minutes from work, to close to drive but too far to walk in our great canadian winter when temperatures can range up to -32. I can basically bike birds eye to where i work through a local park. I have been looking into K-Trak which is pretty cool but i don't think it will hold up to crossing the road and the all the salt that the city of Ottawa puts on the roads. Do you guys have any ideas on guarding the chain from salt? I also noticed someone had posted a picture in one of the threads where they had small spikes embedded in the tires, what are those tires called?
Any advise would be great,
