Road bike modifications necessary?
The winter beat me about 4 months ago, but I have finally worked up the will to get back on the bike.
I have last year's trek2300. Do I need to change anything on it to ride in the winter (i.e., tires, etc.)? It might be a stupid question, but this will be my first winter as a cycling enthusiast. I guess I'm concerned about the massive amounts of salt, sand, and slush on the shoulders of the road. Assuming I go out early enough, though, before all the traffic, I can probably stay off the shoulder for the most part.
Also, are there any specific clothes that you would recommend for road cycling, or do all the clothes already mentioned in the Sticky suffice over all ranges of bikes.
Thanks in advance...
