I've got a Surly Disc Trucker, running Marathon Plus tires. However, with my new job, I'll be able to ride my bike to work all winter, along with going on deliveries around town. Living in the Rockies, at around 8000ft, means we spend around 6 months with snow every year. So I'm starting to think about how to convert my Disc Trucker into a Winter Commuter.
For tires, I'm thinking the Marathon Winter will be the best to go with. Also trying to figure out a cheap wheelset I can mount them on so I don't have to wrestle with tire changing come the fall. And again in the Spring, where the weather will change frequently and it'll be easier to change wheels vs tires to adapt to the conditions.
Is this a smart idea?
